Sri Lanka - Geta Beraya and Udekkiya players

Traditional Sri Lankna drums and drummers. The standing player is holding a hill country drum called the Geta Beraya (a drum with a knot). This is the main drum used to accompany dance sequences in all Kandyan rituals. The right face is covered with the hide of a monkey or monitor lizard and the left side is covered with cattle hide, which is used to provide a finer sound. The seated player is holding a Udekkiya, a very handy drum predominantly used during Kandyan rituals and folk dances. It is played with one hand while handling and controlling the sound by pressure applied on the string and Sawarama with the other. Date: circa 1908

LCC-LFB-AFS training -- tying a knot

The Auxiliary Fire Service (AFS) was created in 1938 to supplement the regular London Fire Brigade. Some 21, 000 volunteer firefighters would be recruited, all of whom had to undergo 60 hours basic training. Here AFS firemen are undergoing 'Knots and Lines' training. All firemen were expected to be able to tie up to 24 different knots, in both daylight and in the dark. Here, Section Leader Leppard demonstrates the correct method of tying a knot, watched by four trainees.
