gift for a firefighter

by KEH

christinej just made me think! I am leaving my husband home alone while I am taking my London/Paris/Rome trip with my recent high school graduate daughter. He is feeling a little left out. I am thinking it would be nice to get him something special. He is a career firefighter who helped during NYC 911 disaster, New Orleans Hurricane Katrina, and most recently a mass school shooting. (I am sharing this to let you know how near and dear emergency rescue is to his heart). Any suggestions on something special to bring a firefighter from London?
Thanks again.

A die cast model of an British fire engine?

I believe you can get a die cast model of the "Green Godess" fire engines that were used during the fire mans strike.

Sounds like your husband would enjoy these and might start a collecting hobby for himself.

You might ask the Captian of your husband's company for a few of the badges from his Company to give to fire fighters in London, Rome and Paris in exchange for one from each of their companies. Then visit a station in each of those cities and ask if they'ed be interested in an exchange.

I know that police officers do that between countries, fire fighters might also.

That is a very good idea!

But it would be better to contact the London Fire Brigade first, rather than just turn up at a station (where they will be busy).

Please do not buy a model of a Green Goddess. I dont think any self-respecting Firefighter would welcome that.

LFCDA (London) have a training Centre and Museum at Southwark.

Alternatively the Firefighters Charity:

http://www.firefighterscharity.org.uk/shop.asp?PageID=7

Have an online shop and this also helps sick and injured Firefighters.

Hope this helps, although personally I'd pick another Fire and Rescue service other than London ;-)

I still remeber the Green Goddess lumbering down the road to an emergency.
It did not give you any confidence that they could do the job.

Travel Tips for London

walk across Abbey Road

by minoan

This will probably sound weird, but my fondest memory of London was riding the train into the heart of the city every morning. I guess, after all those years of dreaming of being in England, that was the first and biggest realisation that I had arrived.

Things I'd only dreamt of - The Standard of Ur

by iandsmith

A mysterious object with one of the earliest representations of a Sumerian army
This object was found in one of the largest graves in the Royal Cemetery at Ur, lying in the corner of a chamber above the right shoulder of a man. Its original function is still not understood. Leonard Woolley, the excavator at Ur, imagined that it was carried on a pole as a standard, Which is how it arrived at its current title. Another theory suggests that it formed the soundbox of a musical instrument.
When found, the original wooden frame for the mosaic of shell, red limestone and lapis lazuli had decayed, and the two main panels had been crushed together by the weight of the soil. The bitumen acting as glue had disintegrated and the end panels were broken. As a result, the present restoration is only a best guess as to how it originally appeared.
The main panels are known as 'War' and 'Peace'. 'War' shows one of the earliest representations of a Sumerian army. Chariots, each pulled by four donkeys, trample enemies; infantry with cloaks carry spears; enemy soldiers are killed with axes, others are paraded naked and presented to the king who holds a spear.
The 'Peace' panel depicts animals, fish and other goods brought in procession to a banquet. Seated figures, wearing woollen fleeces or fringed skirts, drink to the accompaniment of a musician playing a lyre. Banquet scenes such as this are common on cylinder seals of the period, such as on the seal of the 'Queen' Pu-abi, also in the British Museum.
Height: 21.59 cm
Length: 49.53 cm Just going to see things I'd always heard about: such as the British Museum, National Gallery, War Rooms, changing of the guard, Big Ben, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London.
For those of you who like a tipple, the London Pubs really are a bit special - and that's from a teetotaller!
For cryptic crossword buffs, of whom I have to admit to being one, Ur is the most famous ancient town of all as it is often used as a clue.

Take the metro around the city...

by monica78

Take the metro around the city to see all the well known sites! There is so much to see so you will have to go back to London again and again! My first trip to London... I went right before Christmas and Oxford street was decorated with a lot of decorations!
And to party in London is also FANTASTIC!

No grapes on NYE...

by ris_ez

In Spain, at midnight NYE, many clocks ring 12 bells to announce the hour and the New Year while we eat one grape for each bell. It's an old tradition and most of the Spaniards like doing this. Apart from that, as our timetables are different from the major part of Europe, in those moments we are still at home, with the family and/or friends, ending the "banquet". But we know it's not the same in other places and here, in London they just countdown and celebrate it with fireworks and shouting, and for many people, on some clubs or discos in the middle of their party night.

I don't know where else to put...

by hayward68

I don't know where else to put this so it's going here.

If you're looking for an internet cafe, there are loads, but this one was handy if shopping in Oxford St. It's inside a shopping plaza on the second floor, if it's still there!
