UNDAUNTED: THE COURAGE OF SIDNEY CARLIN

bby Don Chester   



Sydney Carlin, a native of Hull, enlisted in the Cavalry in 1914. In 1915 he was awarded a DCM during the Second Battle of Ypres and was Commissioned. In 1916 as a Royal Engineers Lieutenant, he received an MC at the Battle of Delville Wood, where he suffered a leg amputation. Despite his discharge as disabled he was determined to return to the Front Line and applied to the Royal Flying Corps for pilot training. He was rejected, but he designed his own wooden leg and payed for private flying lessons. He persuaded the authorities to send him to a Front Line Scout squadron in France and, in the summer of 1918 he won a DFC, subsequently crash landing and spending the last weeks of the War as a POW. He volunteered again in 1939 and became an air gunner in the Battle of Britain at the age of 50. He died in 1941 in an air raid.

ROMAN CONQUESTS: THE DANUBE FRONTIER

by Dr. Michael Schmitz

The Roman conquests of Macedonia in the 2nd century BC led directly to the extension of their authority over the troublesome tribes of Thrace to the south of the Danube. But their new neighbour on the other side of the mighty river, the kingdom of the Dacians, was to pose an increasing threat to the Roman empire. Inevitably this eventually provoked Roman attempts at invasion and conquest. It is a measure of Dacian prowess and resilience that several tough campaigns were required over more than a century before their kingdom was added to the Roman Empire. It was one of the Empire's last major acquisitions (and a short-lived one at that).

BATTLEGROUND NORMANDY: POINTE DU HOC

by Tim Saunders



A Battleground Guide by Tim Saunders. The attack by Rudder’s Rangers on Pointe du Hoc, as one of the opening acts of D Day, is without doubt an epic of military history. As a result of Montgomery’s upscaling of the invasion General Bradley’s First US Army had to deal with a dangerous coastal gun battery that would dominate the approaches to both Omaha and Utah Beaches. Lieutenant Colonel James Rudder, commander of the Provisional Ranger Group consisting of 2nd and 5th US Rangers, set about training his men and developing techniques to get up the hundred-foot-high cliff. Rocket fired grapples, ladders of various types and even free climbing of a similar lose cliff on England’s south coast were practiced. On D-Day everything that could go wrong did go wrong.
