Hopewell Furnace is a charcoal- fueled, cold- blast furnace that was originally constructed by Ironmaster Mark Bird in 1770- 71. Cast iron produced at Hopewell was molded as cannon and shot for use... More > during the American Revolution. The furnace was also known for its stoves, the earliest surviving model dated 1772.1 Financial difficulties caused Bird and his partner to lose the furnace to a creditor in 1786, and the property passed through several owners between 1786 and 1800. Stability was finally established in 1800, when the furnace was purchased by a partnership of the Buckley and Brooke families. However, legal disputes resulted in the furnace being out of blast from 1808 to 1815, followed by extensive repairs to the works in 1816. Products of the furnace from 1800 to 1845 were pig iron, stove plates, and mixed castings. After 1845, production shifted to pig iron, plus small amounts of mixed castings. Improvements made in the 1880s included repair and rebuilding of the charcoal house and shed...< Less

National service was not voluntary for men in the UK in 1958. All men over eighteen who were medically fit and not in a restricted occupation were 'called up' as it was termed for two years. You had... More > no choice unless you liked prison that is. Similarly you had no choice of which service you went into either. I cannot for instance think why I would have chosen the RAF. No relative of mine had served in the RAF, and I had never been in an aeroplane. I actually started my national service on the second of December 1958 and actually finished my service in January 1962. So on the second of December I became 5065237 A.C. U.T. Bryant. Or Bryant 237 for short. I was no longer a person with a first name or even the title Mr. While technically I suppose I was not actually the very last national service man called up, I was in one of the last batches. The following is a personal view of my service looked at from a light-hearted, non-military viewpoint. I hope you enjoy it.< Less

NATIONAL SERVICE, ELVIS & ME! By David Fowler
Paperback: $23.93
Prints in 3-5 business days
National Service, Elvis and Me! is a serious but light-hearted look at the 13 years of peacetime National Service which led to the call-up of around 2.3 million men in their late teenage years. Most... More > men served for 2 years between 1949 and 1961. Every alternate Thursday for 13 years 6,000 men were called-up and allocated to either the Army, the RAF or the Royal Navy. Elvis Presley was on manoeuvres in Germany with the US Forces when he entered the story, and Sir Alan Ayckbourn, Harry Corbett, Brian Clough, Kenny Lynch, Bill Wyman and other personalities also feature. Serious in some parts, and hilariously funny in others, there are tales of training in the UK; square bashing and ’bulling',war games the antics many of the testosterone charged men got up to; humour; and the camaraderie which arose from men being thrown into a massive pond and having to sink or swim. With 425 pages and many photographs this book is a fascinating read for anyone.< Less
