South River (Maryland)

The South River is a 10-mile-long tributary of the Chesapeake Bay in Anne Arundel County, Maryland in the United States. It lies south of the Severn River, east of the Patuxent River, north of the West River and Rhode River, drains to the Chesapeake Bay. Total watershed area is 56 square miles of it land. From its headwaters in western Anne Arundel County in Crofton, the river enters the Chesapeake Bay south of the historic port city of Annapolis, hence the name South River, its major non-tidal branches include the North River, the non-tidal portion of the South River, Bacon Ridge Branch, which drains the area east of the North River. Their confluence is between Maryland Route 450 and US 50; some of the creeks on its north shore drain developed portions of Annapolis Church Creek, which drains much of the Parole and Annapolis Harbour shopping centers. The navigable portion of the South River is crossed by two bridges, one carrying Maryland Route 2, known as the South River Bridge, the other carrying Riva Road, known as the Riva Bridge.

A bridge carrying US 50 crosses its upper tidal reaches. Although there are no major towns on the river other than Annapolis and Edgewater, a "lost town" called London Town was established on the south shore of the river in 1683, was once the county seat and a major port, it was located between Almshouse Creek and Glebe Bay, across the river from Ferry Point. The one surviving house, the William Brown house, built between 1758–1764, has been restored and is open to the public as part of Historic London Town and Gardens. Another historic structure near the South River, the well-known and photographed Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse, is just outside the mouth of the South River.

Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team

The Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team is a voluntary organisation that functions as a search and rescue service covering the southern half of West Yorkshire. It is a registered charity funded by public contributions; the team takes its name from the valley of the River Holme, one of several rivers that pass through its area. However this name is more of historical than current significance; the team's headquarters are near Huddersfield and in the valley of the River Colne. The team was set up as the Holme Valley Moorland Rescue Team in 1965 after the death of two Boy Scouts taking part in a Challenge Hike on local moorland. Based in the Holme Valley town of Meltham, the team relocated to Marsden in 2005, occupying part of the town's fire station; when the West Yorkshire Fire Service closed the Marsden fire station in 2013, the rescue team raised £60,000 to buy it, unveiling it as their official base in April 2015. Since its foundation, the team has continued to provide assistance to those who get into difficulties while taking part in leisure activities on the moorland of the South Pennines and Northern Peak District.

The team's role is not confined to aiding those. Assistance is provided to West Yorkshire Police on searches for missing persons in rural and semi-rural areas, to Yorkshire Ambulance Service when casualties need to be extracted from less accessible locations; the team helps local groups and charities by providing event safety cover and education. Training exercises are held to maintain a high skills and knowledge base within the team; this includes search techniques, casualty care and handling and ropework, maintenance and use of the team's own specialist equipment. On a call out, the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team may work in partnership with neighbouring teams, or other organisations such as the Police and Ambulance services, the RAF and the West Yorkshire Air Ambulance, holds training exercises jointly with these groups to maintain an effective partnership; the Holme Valley MRT is a member of the Mid Pennine Rescue Organisation. The Holme Valley MRT maintains a great deal of specialist equipment.

This needs to be checked and replaced to meet regulations and this process accounts for a large proportion of the team's expenditure. The team runs two vehicles. A long wheelbase Land Rover Defender, a Vauxhall Movano van. Both vehicles are fitted with blue strobes, they each carry medical and communications equipment, as well as'party kits' - equipment taken out by each hill party to aid in the initial stabilisation of a casualty, before more specialised equipment can be brought to the scene.

Nationaal Comité 4 en 5 mei

National Committee for 4 and 5 May or Nationaal Comité 4 en 5 mei is a Dutch authority for war monuments and memorials since 1987. The committee is best known for its annual organization of the Remembrance of the Dead observances on May 4th, its organization of music festivals to celebrate freedom on May 5th, Liberation Day. Prior to its founding, the various observances were all organized locally with little or no central coordination; the organization now keeps a database of all war memorials and monuments erected over time throughout the kingdom, this includes objects in former state-controlled territories. Since starting the May 4th Amsterdam dodenherdenking, located on the spot where civilians were killed during the May 7th 1945 Dam Square shooting, efforts to widen the focus to be more inclusive of all war casualties have continued; the committee was founded in 1987 to preserve the various recorded events and to uncover lesser known stories of national importance. To this day memorials are still created to honor WWII events, but of national engagements since that time.

The database of war memorials is an ongoing effort to capture metadata about actual monuments and memorials. The best known monument is the National Monument. Official website
