It took us quite a while to trace the swords markings in our lexicon of 19th century European swords reference works. Curiously through our research these swords that appear to have survived the war in Russia were mostly in the Russian armoury store at Sebastepol during the war, and they were ‘liberated’ by the British soldiers from the armoury, and then used against the Russians in combat by the British. Curiously this example found its way to Spain and was acquired some 50 years or so ago.

Was the LMS too big? Frederic Stansfield In his reply to my earlier letter about the size of the LMS September issue , Doug Landau November issue makes many interesting points describing the company’s engineering innovations. But two of Landau’s examples show how engineering developments within the LMS were subordinated to business issues.
LMS management’s rejection of electrification proposals, because of insufficient return on capital, is unsurprising when neither the scheme nor the one linked London with a major city such as Birmingham. Also, the belt repair system to which Landau refers represented the development in Britain of “scientific management” techniques. As he indicates, this system had the business aim of reducing repair times and costs.
Letter writer would agree in general with Landau’s observation that the Southern Railway was the most forward looking of the ‘Big Four’. However, in my previous letter I compared the LMS not with its British contemporaries but with other European railways, which received more government support. Britain’s railways, including the LMS, did receive very limited government finance in the s. Landau does not address the question ‘Was the LMS too big?
The company’s business failure to follow-up engineering developments, such as electrification and main line diesel locomotives, would suggest the opposite. The LMS was if anything too small to attract the money needed to implement its engineers’ technical innovations.

History[ edit ] The Medway area has a long and varied history dominated originally by the city of Rochester and later by the naval and military establishments principally in Chatham and Gillingham. Rochester was established on an Iron Age site by the Romans ,  who called it Durobrivae meaning “stronghold by the bridge” , to control the point where Watling Street now the A2 crossed the River Medway. Rochester later became a walled town and, under later Saxon influence, a mint was established here.
The first cathedral was built by Bishop Justus in and rebuilt under the Normans by Bishop Gundulf , who also built the castle that stands opposite the cathedral. Rochester was also an important point for people travelling the Pilgrims’ Way , which stretches from Winchester to the shrine of Thomas Becket at Canterbury.

A lot of senior directors, CEOs and precisely the types of people we are looking to have conversations with to make those enterprise-wise investments.
