Oliver Cromwell's House

Oliver Cromwell's House is based in Ely, Cambridgeshire and was the family home of Oliver Cromwell. The kitchen dates from around 1215, other parts being built later. In 1988, it was bought by the local council, has been refurbished to show how it may have looked during Cromwell's lifetime; the former Lord Protector's family home is the only residence still in existence other than Hampton Court. Following a recent refurbishment the House now boasts a re-vamped Civil War Exhibition with impressive interactive displays and interpretations. There is a new timeline and family tree to provide more engaging content about this complex man who killed a King, but refused the crown. Visitors have the opportunity to try on costumes and try out the games of the time as well as experience what life was like on the battle fields during the English Civil War in our new mini encampment. Audio handsets bring the story of this impressive House vividly to life. Or try the new augmented reality trail - The Cromwell Quest, perfect for families.

SS Mareeba

The SS Mareeba was an Australian freighter built in 1921 and named after the town of Mareeba in Far North Queensland, Australia. She was a 3,472-ton Australasian United Steam Navigation Company vessel; the Mareeba was attacked and sunk in the Bay of Bengal on 26 June 1941 by the German auxiliary cruiser Kormoran. She was carrying 5000 tons of sugar from Batavia to Colombo when she picked up the Yugoslav freighter Velebit's distress signal. Instead of stopping the Mareeba radioed her position and ran for it because at 8 o'clock that morning she had spotted the British light cruiser HMS Durban, in the Ten Degree Channel, she received nine shots to her hull, several of which hit her engine-room, although she was slowing sinking, it took a team of German boarding party placing demolitions to sink her quickly. It would be said that the Mareeba would have made a fine auxiliary minelayer because of her durability. All 48 of the crew of the Mareeba were captured and spirited away on the Komoran which travelled at top speed through the night and most of the following day to avoid retaliation for the sinkings.

The captured crew stayed on the Komoran for a total of 103 days where they were housed in the fore part of the ship below the waterline. They were allowed on deck daily. After the 103 days, they were transferred to a German supply ship Kulmerland, after 15 days, the prisoners were transferred to a German prison ship Spreewald. Below is an incomplete list of crew. Anderson, Mr. Bentley, Mr. Bottomley, Mr. Jack Dooley, Mr. Lionel Evans, Mr. Ford, Mr. Geoffrey Freeman, Mr David J. Griffiths, Mr. Jack B. Hayes, Mr. Dennis Hill, Mr. James A.

Regional school unit

A regional school unit is a type of school district in Maine. They were created starting in 2008 pursuant to a change in Maine Law that attempted to save on administrative costs by consolidating Maine's many school districts into larger districts; this change was championed by Governor John Baldacci. Despite a deadline of January 30, 2009, many voters rejected their local school consolidation plans, citing issues such as loss of local control and higher costs due to bringing lower-paid teachers up to parity. For example, Brewer faced an annual loss of $244,000 in state subsidies for rejecting the consolidation plan, but a loss of $2.74 million in increased salaries over the first 3 years if it had been approved. As of November 20, 2009, 74 RSUs had been formed.
