PHOTOGRAPHIC 200 PAGE MEMORIAL ROLL OF HONOUR AFGHANISTAN 2002 - 2015
 

Untitled 6 - Sign"ORDER YOUR BOOK NOW  TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT"

To mark the withdrawal of all British combat forces from Afghanistan at the end 2014 I am  in the process of producing a Roll of Honour dedicated to the men and women in the Armed Forces who have been killed on operations in Afghanistan.. The Roll of Honour  will be a high quality, landscape volume journal , A4 size with hard front and rear covers in faux leather. The volume will be laid out with an individual full colour photograph of each serviceman and servicewoman under the heading of their cap badge, in date order with a short biography of each man or woman.

I am placing an order for a first edition of 1000 volumes with the printers, at cost of £12,000. in order to get the project up and running I am starting taking orders. The price to purchasers for each volume will be £35, and all the profits above the cost of production and distribution will be divided between the following charities:

The ABF The Soldiers Charity 

The RAF Benevolent Fund 

The Royal Marines Charities (Go Commando)

SSAFA Forces Help(NI)

SSAFA Bereaved Forces Families

Falklands Chapel Trust Pangeborne

The response I have had so far from the many bereaved families, friends and comrades of those killed with whom I have been in contact has been very positive, and supportive of the project. Each volume can also be 'personalised' with a suitable inscription for an additional £3.75.

I have attached a sample page with this letter to illustrate the proposed layout for each page in the volume,The book will have over 200 high quality pages

If interested  please contact me by email and have your name added to the list.You will be contacted with any updates.

The Book/Journal will be published in March 2015.when the last combat troops have left Afghanistan

KENYA EMERGENCY 1952-1963

 

Kenya

KENYA EMERGENCY, OCTOBER 1952 – DECEMBER 1963

94 Officers and Men are listed as having lost their lives in Kenya 1952 -1963


The Republic of Kenya is a country in East Africa. Lying along the Indian Ocean, at the equator, Kenya is bordered by Ethiopia (north), Somalia (northeast), Tanzania (south), Uganda plus Lake Victoria (west), and Sudan (northwest). The capital city is Nairobi. Kenya spans an area about 85% the size of France or Texas. The population has grown rapidly in recent decades to nearly 38 million. Kenya has numerous wildlife reserves, containing thousands of animal species. The country is named after Mount Kenya, a significant landmark and the second among the highest mountain peaks of Africa, During the presidency of Jomo Kenyatta in the 1960s, the current English pronunciation became widespread because his name retained the native pronunciation. Before 1920, the area now known as Kenya was known as the British East Africa Protectorate and so there was no need to mention mount when referring to the mountain.

Mau Mau Uprising

The Mau Mau Uprising of 1952 to 1960 was an insurgency by Kenyan peasants against the British colonialist rule. The core of the resistance was formed by members of the Kikuyu ethnic group, along with smaller numbers of Embu and Meru. The uprising failed militarily, though it hastened Kenyan independence and motivated Africans in other countries to fight against colonial rule. It created a rift between the white colonial community in Kenya and the Home Office in London that set the stage for Kenyan independence in 1963. It is sometimes called the Mau Mau Rebellion or the Mau Mau Revolt, and, in official documents, the Kenya Emergency. The name Mau Mau for the rebel movement was not coined by the movement itself- they called themselves Muingi (“The Movement”), Muigwithania (“The Understanding”), Muma wa Uiguano (“The Oath of Unity”) or simply “The KCA”, after the Kikuyu Central Association that created the impetus for the insurgency. Veterans of the independence movement referred to themselves as the “Land and Freedom Army” in English.
