The phrase basket-type hilts refers to a large group of hilts which provide a degree of protection to the hand and wrist. Basket-hilted swords have featured prominently among British military edged weapons over the past five centuries, from the Wars of the Roses in the mid fifteenth century to the period immediately after the second Boer War of the early twentieth century. In setting out to give a full account of the hilt type, and the many variants within it, the first necessity has been to provide an appropriate terminology to employ in cataloguing and describing individual examples. The book, well illustrated with black and white illustrations, falls into several parts, dealing successively with general aspects of various hilt types and discussion of typological methodology, the three major groups of basket-hilted swords, the diverse group of incomplete basket hilts, ‘mortuary’ hilts, and hilts closely related to ‘mortuary’ hilts.

Early years[ edit ] Early image of Crewe station c Platforms five and six are used primarily for express traffic along the West Coast Main Line. Crewe station looking NE and showing the six converging railway routes Crewe station was the first station to have its own adjacent railway hotel: The Crewe Arms, built in , and still in use.
It was the also first to have completely independent rail lines built around it to ease traffic congestion. The station opened on 4 July on the Grand Junction Railway. The station was built in the township of Crewe , which formed part of the ancient parish of Barthomley. The township later became a civil parish in its own right, and, later still, was renamed Crewe Green to avoid confusion with the town of Crewe, which was adjacent to it.
The station was at the point where the line crossed the turnpike road linking the Trent and Mersey and the Shropshire Union Canals. Since the land was bought from the Earl of Crewe, whose mansion stood nearby, and it was located in the township of Crewe, the station was called Crewe.

I remember looking over it and admiring the exterior finish and the way that the interior was tastefully trimmed orange dominated — fashionable at the time and it matched the beige of the exterior. It would have been nice to have been able to afford a brand-new boat but my budget would not have stretched to that. So it was back to looking around the boatyards.
We were quite friendly with Ken and his wife, Caroline. She baked the most beautiful pies and preserves and sold them to boats going through the lock. When we were purchasing one of these pies a couple of days later, I enquired about the boat. Knowing of my interest in boats, Ken told me that it was for sale and invited me around to have a look at it.

Before a tragic underwater encounter took his life, Irwin was fearless — as long as he did not face one animal. He did not have a globally broadcasted series yet but became infatuated with animals at a young age. Steve grew up surrounded by giant reptiles learning to care for them as he got older. He had to be in the middle of the action. His parents started him off slowly, allowing him to feed the animals daily and handle some maintenance duties. Bob Irwin finally introduced Steve to crocodiles when he was nine years old.
He would not let him get near the ferocious reptiles without his supervision and until Steve had learned enough about them. That same year, Steve had his first bout with a crocodile. With his father nearby, Steve wrestled a crocodile as if it were one of his pals.
