Winston Churchill visits Prime Minister - Curragh incident Featured 24 Aug 2018 Print

Winston Churchill visits Prime Minister - Curragh incident

Winston Churchill visits the Prime Minister Herbert Henry Asquith on Monday 26th 1914 following the Curragh incident of 20th March 1914 (also known as the Curragh mutiny). With Irish Home Rule due to become law in 1914, the British Cabinet contemplated some kind of military action against the Ulster Volunteers who threatened to rebel against it. Many officers, especially those with Irish Protestant connections, of whom the most prominent was Hubert Gough, threatened to resign rather than obey, privately encouraged from London by senior officers including Henry Wilson. Date: 1914

Charlton sand Pits - Charlton, South East London Featured 24 Aug 2018 Print

Charlton sand Pits - Charlton, South East London

Charlton sand Pits - Charlton, South East London. The home football ground of Charlton Athletic FC, The Valley dates from 1919, at a time when the club were looking for a new home. The club found an abandoned sand and chalk pit (possibly this one?!) in Charlton, but did not have sufficient funds to fully develop the site. A large group of volunteer Charlton supporters excavated and cleared a flat area for the pitch at the bottom of the pit and build up makeshift stands from the excavated material. The first game was played before any terraces or seating were formerly installed, simply the roped-off pitch with the crowd standing or sitting on the surrounding earthworks. It is said the unique circumstances of the ground's construction cultivated an unusually intense bond between the Charlton supporters and the site, which exists to this day. Date: circa 1902
