    Gallipoli eyewitness: World War I soldier Sydney Skinner's letter to parents … 9 hours ago

    At 4:00am on April 25, 1915, 22-year-old Sydney Harrie Skinner was just one of the expectant nervous Anzacs onboard His Majesty's Australian Transport Ship 15 as it anchored off Kabe Tepe point on the Gallipoli peninsula.  The ship, the Star of England, had steamed through the night from Lemnos Island in Greece.Sydney Skinner's letter home to his "Ma and Pa" provides an extraordinarily vivid first-hand description of the landing, the carnage, the horror and at times the excitement felt by many of those who took part in what was to become the defining moment in Australian military mythology."As the day broke", he writes, "and the light became brighter you could just distinguish the land ahead. At 5 am they opened fire on us – shrapnel was bursting everywhere."Skinner describes how the battleships then returned fire on the Turkish shelling points on the shore."The accuracy of the firing was wonderful, the shells would land right in the Fort, you would hear a deafening explosion, and tons of earth and stones would shoot up into the air."The troops were transferred to destroyers and then "taken ashore in pulling boats".On landing, the boats "received a hail of lead, the machine guns were pouring lead on to them and the air was alive with shrapnel.

    Shakespeare's 450th Birthday: Uranus' Moons, Klingon Hamlet and Other … Wed, Apr 23, 2014

    23 April marks the 450th birthday of William Shakespeare, the world-revered English playwright whose influence on the language is still felt today. The only item Shakespeare left to his wife, Anne Hathaway, in his will was the second best bed in the house, along with the bed linen. One of Shakespeare's relatives, William Arden, a second cousin, was indicted for plotting against Queen Elizabeth I. He was imprisoned in the Tower of London and executed in 1583. Although Shakespeare's work is largely considered Elizabethan, the majority of his plays were written after the death of Queen Elizabeth I. James VI of Scotland became James I when he inherited the crown of England in 1603. More »

    Royal visit: Adelaide prepares to welcome Prince William and Catherine, Duchess … Wed, Apr 23, 2014

    A crowd of around 50,000 people is expected to turn out to greet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Adelaide today.It is a whirlwind visit, with the couple expected to spend just under three hours in the suburb of Elizabeth, named after the Queen.Prince William and Catherine, who spent the night in the Northern Territory, will arrive at the RAAF Edinburgh base about 11:00am (ACST).From there, they will head to Northern Sound System, an alternative learning centre which uses music to engage with young people.The Royal couple, who are expected to be greeted by about 100 students, will watch hip-hop dancing, a performance of original rap songs and a skateboarding display.From there the Duke and Duchess will attend a civic reception at the Playford Civic Centre, hosted by South Australian Governor Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce.Officials predict a crowd of up to 50,000 will gather along the streets hoping to catch a glimpse of the Royal couple.It is hoped there will also be an opportunity for the public to meet William and Catherine when they walk from their car into the civic centre.Playford City Council Mayor Glenn Docherty says the council has been receiving calls from fans hoping to camp in the area overnight."We've had a number of calls to the council's telephone line asking us what time to get here. All I can say is get here bright and early," he said.Several roads will be closed along with the local court house to ensure the visit goes off without a hitch."There is a large number of security preparations with local police, federal police and obviously those involved with the Royal tour," Mr Docherty said.Once the day's official events have concluded, the Duke and Duchess will fly to Canberra to be reunited with baby Prince George.Elizabeth: A Royal suburb The suburb of Elizabeth, named after Queen Elizabeth II when it was created in 1955, has enjoyed a Royal visit once before.The monarch visited the suburb eight years later, turning on the tap for the newly constructed water fountain in the heart of the city.The suburb was developed at a time when many migrants were moving from the United Kingdom to live in Adelaide.It is a Labor stronghold where the local Holden plant has been the main source of employment.But the car manufacturer's announcement that it would cease production in Australia by 2017 came as a major blow to the community.
