and money to the Dey of Algiers. She then sailed to Syracuse (Syracuse, Italy), Sicily, where she arrived early in January 1804. A '''Key Stage''' is a stage of the state (state school) education system in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the British Territory of Gibraltar setting the educational knowledge expected of students at various ages. The term Key Stage is also used in Hong Kong although the ages at which each Key Stage applies differ from England. Cultural significance ''Edge of Darkness'' tapped into a cultural zeitgeist of concern about nuclear power and nuclear warfare in the early to mid nineteen-eighties. In 1980, current affairs programme ''Panorama (Panorama (TV series))'' broadcast “If The Bomb Drops”, a documentary that examined how well prepared Britain was for a nuclear attack; in 1983, ''The Day After'' an American TV movie about a nuclear war aired; in 1984, the BBC broadcast ''On the Eighth Day'', a documentary about the effects of a nuclear winter and ''Threads'', a drama about a nuclear attack on Sheffield while 1985 saw the first screening of Peter Watkins' nuclear war television film ''The War Game'', banned on television since 1965. Kibble-White, ''Let's All Hide In The Linen Cupboard''. ''Edge of Darkness'' also rode on a wave of preoccupation with the secretive nature of the State in both fact (e.g. ''This Week (This Week (ITV TV series))''’s “Death on the Rock” (1988) about the deaths of three Provisional IRA members in Gibraltar and ''Secret Society'' (1987) about undisclosed matters of public interest which led to the sacking (Zircon affair) of BBC Director General (Director General of the BBC) Alasdair Milne) and fiction (e.g. the films ''Defence of the Realm'' (1985) and ''The Whistle Blower'' (1987) and the television serials ''A Very British Coup'' (1988) and ''Traffik'' (1989)). Lavender, ''Edge of Darkness (Troy Kennedy Martin)'', p. 107. The '''Battle of Algeciras Bay''' refers to two separate battles in July 1801 between an allied French-Spanish fleet and the British near Gibraltar. In the first battle, the French drove off an attack by the larger British fleet and captured one ship of the line. In the second battle, the British pursued the Franco-Spanish fleet, destroying two Spanish ships and capturing one French ship. The headquarters are located in Silkeborg, and the Bank has offices, branches, or subsidiaries in Denmark, France, Germany, Gibraltar, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. Service history Assigned to U.S. patrol squadrons based on Gibraltar, ''Dyer'' sailed from New York (New York, New York) 9 July 1918 with Assistant Secretary of the Navy Franklin Delano Roosevelt embarked for transportation to Plymouth, England. Arriving 21 July ''Dyer'' got underway 5 days later arriving Gibraltar on the 29th. On 4 August she began her service as escort for merchant convoys and Army transports between Gibraltar and Marseilles, France, making nine such voyages until the end of hostilities. thumb right (Image:USSDyerDD84.jpg) Commander-in-Chief - Asiatic Fleet Admiral Evans transferred his flag from armored cruiser, USS New York (ACR-2) on 4 November 1902 to battleship, USS Kentucky (BB-6) at Yokohama, Japan. 5 December 1903 the Kentucky left Japanese waters for Hawaii. 16 December 1903, the Kentucky arrived at Pearl Harbor Naval Station, Hawaii. Admiral Evans hosted a Christmas dinner for the officers of Kentucky at the Moana Hotel in Waikiki. Evans flagship departed Honolulu for Guam. Kentucky arrived in Cavite, Philippines on 18 January 1904. Admiral Evans called on the new Governor-General of the Philippines, Luke Edward Wright at the Malacanang Palace. Evans flagship departed Manila on 13 March 1904. The Kentucky coaled at Hong Kong and Colombo. Sailing through the Suez Canal into the Mediterranean Sea to the port of Naples, Italy. The voyage continued to Gibraltar coaling at Madeira; the flagship Kentucky arrived at the New York Navy Yard, 23 May 1904. Admiral Evans hauled down his flag, 27 May 1904 from battleship, Kentucky. Returning from the Caribbean on 13 February 1951, ''Kleinsmith'' departed Little Creek on 5 March on the first of four deployments to the Mediterranean Sea. Arriving at Gibraltar on 15 March with UDT personnel embarked, she deployed with the 6th Fleet (United States Sixth Fleet) and participated in amphibious operations that ranged from Oran, Algeria, to Phaleron Bay, Greece. After serving as an amphibious control ship, she departed Gibraltar on 26 June for the United States, arriving at Little Creek on 6 July. On 19 July 1952, she departed for another four-month deployment with the 6th Fleet, and supported its important peace-keeping activities off the troubled lands of the Mediterranean. Release The compilation was released in many countries, including the United States, Canada, Australia, Spain, Germany, France, Greece, Japan, Mexico and most of South America. It was also available to other countries as an "export" from Britain (Parlophone Apple CPCS-106) but was not at first issued in Britain, although it was a popular import to the UK.The first issue in New Zealand was on the gloss black Apple label with the catalogue number CPCS-106.The matrix numbers were identical to those on the UK "export" issue. Because of its popularity worldwide, Parlophone released ''Hey Jude'' in Britain on 11 May 1979 (catalogue number PCS 7184.) (If a fan who owned all twelve studio British Beatles albums augmented his or her collection with ''Hey Jude'', ''Magical Mystery Tour (Magical Mystery Tour (album))'', ''A Collection of Beatles Oldies'', and the British version of ''Rarities (Rarities (Beatles compilation))'', his or her collection would include every official Beatles song recorded for EMI, although a number of officially-released alternate mixes would still be missing.) Until the release of ''1967–1970'' in 1973, ''Hey Jude'' was the only way to own the extremely popular "Hey Jude" single on LP or in a stereo (stereophonic sound) mix. The songs "Lady Madonna", "Rain (Rain (The Beatles song))", and "Revolution (Revolution (The Beatles))" also appeared for the first time in stereo on this album. Prior to the release of the "Get Back" single in the spring of 1969, all Beatles singles were issued in mono (monaural) in the US. If nothing else, this compilation showcased stereo versions of previously single-only mono Beatles songs. Several other countries wound up with the original ''The Beatles Again'' title, with Spain's perhaps being the most interesting—because "Ballad of John and Yoko" was clipped from the album, having been deemed offensive (either because of its reference to Christ, or to the fact of Lennon's reference to "Gibraltar near Spain" at a time when Spain's Franco (Francisco Franco) administration was contending with the UK over the ownership of Gibraltar). General Officer Commanding (Malaya) In April 1941 Percival was given promotion to acting lieutenant-general (Lieutenant-General (United Kingdom)),

From 1924 to 1926, he was educated at Sheerness Technical High School for Boys where he displayed a talent for science. Arriving at Gibraltar 14 February 1921, ''Childs'' joined U.S. Naval Forces, Europe, to cruise in the Mediterranean, Adriatic, North, and Baltic Seas until 25 November, when she arrived at Constantinople. Here she joined the relief mission sent to Russia early in 1922, remaining in the Black Sea on diplomatic duties until 1 April. On 8 July, she departed from Cherbourg for Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, returning to the United States 29 July. ''Sands'' returned to Constantinople on 9 July and soon afterward sailed for Gibraltar and the United States. From August into November, she underwent overhaul at Philadelphia. By late December, she had joined the Scouting Fleet at New York; and, on 3 January 1923, she departed from that city for winter maneuvers in the Caribbean. In February, she participated in Fleet Problem I, an exercise designed to test the defenses of the Panama Canal. During March and April, she conducted operations in the Greater Antilles; and, in May, she moved back to the east coast. In July, after overhaul, she headed north to the New England coast. In the autumn, she commenced operations off the mid-Atlantic seaboard; and, in January 1924, she again sailed south for winter maneuvers. The British overseas territory of Gibraltar has its own currency, the '''Gibraltar pound''', which is pegged with (Fixed exchange rate) the Pound sterling at par. As a consequence, the Government of Gibraltar mint (Mint (coin))s its own coins. The coins are made with the same planchets as the UK pound For almost two months, Craven and Semmes exchanged verbal broadsides both with each other and with the British authorities. Semmes then cleverly feigned preparations for departure, only to abandon ''Sumter'' in port on 11 April. ''Tuscarora'' remained at Gibraltar until relieved by her sister ship,

Spain entered the war as a French ally with the goal of recapturing Gibraltar and Minorca, which it had lost to the British in 1704. Gibraltar was besieged (Great Siege of Gibraltar) for more than three years, but the British garrison stubbornly resisted and was resupplied twice: once after Admiral Rodney (George Rodney)'s victory over Juan de Lángara in the 1780 "Moonlight Battle" (Battle of Cape St. Vincent (1780)), and again after Admiral Richard Howe (Richard Howe, 1st Earl Howe) fought Luis de Córdova y Córdova to a draw in the Battle of Cape Spartel. Further Franco-Spanish efforts to capture Gibraltar were unsuccessful. One notable success took place on February 5, 1782, when Spanish and French forces captured Minorca (Invasion of Minorca, 1781), which Spain retained after the war. Ambitious plans for an invasion of Great Britain in 1779 had to be abandoned (Armada of 1779).
