Authors : Spanner, E F. (1888-1953) UK naval architect who, after his retirement from the Royal Corps of Naval Construction, was the author of three Future War novels: The Broken Trident (1926), which predicts the use of torpedoes launched by warplanes against vulnerable surface vessels; The Naviators (1926); and The Harbour of Death (1927), where future war battles take place in the Mediterranean.

Spanner's recurring message is that the UK should not remain unduly dependent upon her navy. The dire consequences of so doing are dramatized presciently in terms of the dangers posed by both Germany and Japan.

This situation was altered in 2011 - 2012 when the Government of South Australia created the Arkaroola Protection Zone and passed the Arkaroola Protection Act (2012) which prohibits all mining activity in the Arkaroola Protection Zone.[3] Mount Painter No. 6 workings, on a spur of Radium Ridge, to the south of Mount Gee.

THE AIR LINKS BETWEEN ITALY AND EASTERN AFRICA, June 1940-November 1941. Trimotori da trasporto Savoia Marchetti SM 82 (Sicilia, 1941) by Alberto Rosselli A few days after entering the war, the Italian Air Force Command – under specific request of the Army’s staff – began to work out a plan to establish a regular link system between Italy and Eastern Africa.


The unfavourable geo-political configuration of the African territories (Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia) belonging to the Italian empire and the huge distance between the latter and both the motherland and Libya, forced the headquarters of Army, Navy and Air Forces to find out a remedy to one of the most serious and immediately negative consequences coming out from the Italian declaration of war of June 10, 1940.

It's an unabashedly decadent dish that makes an excellent partner to spring lamb in this decidedly wintery weather, that I'm focusing on today. I've found it more difficult than it looks: previous attempts have been variously plagued by undercooked and soggy potatoes, dryness and gruesomely curdled cream. If it's good for Warren Buffett, is it good for you? What set Warren Buffett off to become the world's richest investor, worth something like $65 billion - or maybe it's trillion - was reading a book by Ben Graham called The Intelligent Investor.
