Abadan, Iran

on the oil town of Abadan (Abadan, Iran) when it lost 582 men in a single day. He met Saddam Hussein and sketched him. He encountered some criticism form comrades, given Hussein's brutal dictatorship (including CIA (Central Intelligence Agency)-supported slaughter of communists), but Sprague maintained he was documenting the horrors of war, the subject which had first brought him to political art. He won several prestigious awards, including poster of the year award from the Council of Industrial Design on two occasions. One of the primary reasons for initiating the campaign in Mesopotamia was to defend the oil refinery at Abadan (Abadan, Iran) at the mouth of the Shatt al-Arab. Adopting a forward defence policy, the British army under General Townshend (Charles Vere Ferrers Townshend) fought off a series of small Ottoman forces. Then after a year of a string of defeats, the Ottoman forces were able to halt the British advance in two days of hard fighting at Ctesiphon. Shortly after the European war started, the British sent a military force to protect Abadan (Abadan, Iran). In Abadan was one of the world's earliest oil refineries. British operational planning included landing troops in the Shatt-al-Arab. The reinforced Indian 6th (Poona) Infantry Division (Indian 6th Infantry Division) from the British Indian Army was assigned, designated as Indian Expeditionary Force D (IEFD). The ''Ondina'', presumed last victim The ''Ondina'' was a modern tanker (Tanker (ship)) built for one of the shipping companies of Shell (Royal Dutch Shell), La Corona. She was new, relatively fast and by contemporary standards not lightly armed with a 4" 50 caliber gun on her stern and several machine guns for anti-aircraft use. Under Captain W. Horsman, she was now deployed between Fremantle (Fremantle, Western Australia) in Australia and Abadan (Abadan, Iran) on the oil (petroleum)-rich shores of the Persian Gulf. On her journey to Abadan, she would only enjoy the protection of a small corvette. HMIS ''Bengal'' (HMIS Bengal (J243)) (Lt. Cdr. W.J. Wilson, RNR) was one of the RAN-type Bathurst class corvette minesweepers, although she and three sister ships were allocated to the Indian Navy. She only had one 3-inch gun (a 4-inch gun was not available), which made her firepower barely enough to protect the ''Ondina'' from submarines, let alone from enemy surface raiders. The two ships departed Fremantle on 5 November 1942, expecting a long but uneventful trip. Following the flotation, Costain moved into civil engineering and worked first on the Trans-Iranian Railway and then at Abadan, Iran for BP. Losses on the railway, on Beckton sewage works and the costs of Dolphin Square caused financial problems, and Costain had to look for alternative funds when Barclays withdrew its overdraft facilities. In spite of the British embassy reports claiming the contrary, some sources claim that Reza Shah Pahlavi had allegedly brought Iran "closer" to Germany (Nazi Germany), which was also later used as a pretext for the British and Soviet invasion of Iran. Esposito, ''Islam and Politics'', p. 127 The British feared that the Abadan (Abadan, Iran) Oil Refinery, owned by the Anglo-Persian Oil Company, might fall into German hands — the refinery produced eight million tons of oil in 1940 and was thus a crucial part of the Allied (Allies of World War II) war effort. ) is a multi-purpose stadium in Abadan (Abadan, Iran), Iran.

Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

A particular concern was that NSP would accelerate conservation programs in the six MEUNS towns (Lunenburg (Lunenburg, Nova Scotia), Mahone Bay, Riverport (Riverport, Nova Scotia), Canso (Canso, Nova Scotia), Berwick (Berwick, Nova Scotia) and Antigonish (Antigonish, Nova Scotia)), reducing town revenues, while lagging in its own service area to preserve its own revenues, possibly as part of a takeover strategy to bankrupt small utilities. The proposal for a small $12 year charge and was approved by the regulator. Departing Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in December 2000 on a 19-month, around the world voyage, Younghusband became a crew member of the barque ''Picton Castle (Picton Castle (ship))''. On board were the captain and 9 other professional crew members, along with 35 trainees including Younghusband. Although he was the narrator of the program, he also had to act as bona-fide member of the crew who was required to live under 19th-century conditions. During the voyage, the footage was aired (beginning in June 2001) as a 16-part documentary on Life Network, and later on other networks like the UK incarnation of the ''Travel Channel''. Topsail Entertainment, which produced the series, later went on to produce the popular series Trailer Park Boys. Younghusband had made a guest appearance on the Topsail-produced series Black Harbour in 1998. During Father Le Loutre’s War, the conflict continued. The Mi'kmaq attacked New England Rangers in the Siege of Grand Pre and Battle at St. Croix. Upon the founding of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Broussard and the Mi'kmaq conducted numerous raids on the village, such as the Raid on Dartmouth (1751), to try to stop the Protestants migration into Nova Scotia. (Similarly, during the French and Indian War, Mi’kmaq, Acadians and Maliseet also engaged in numerous raids on Lunenburg, Nova Scotia to stop the migration, such as the Raid on Lunenburg (1756).)

Le Loutre and Broussard also worked together to resist the British occupation of Chignecto (Isthmus of Chignecto) (1750) and then later they fought together with Acadians in the Battle of Beausejour (1755).
