Near the Fauroeulx gate of the town in , Roman pottery was discovered. Under the Merovingian and Carolingian , we find no evidence of a major population centre in the vicinity. However, the historian Jacques de Guise, claims that at that time the town was founded by a brave knight named Aymond, who lived around the year This Aymond was Count of Faumars Famars and Ardennes, also by his loyalty to the king, he and all four sons tended the deep wood, where they made a fortress and a place called Carcetus,Le Quesnoy. Furthermore, the historian Jules Duvivier would rather name an ancient Count of Hainaut: In the 9th century, the region was occupied by the Vikings who settled there along rivers. Around the year at the time of King Charles the Bald , they were blocked at Valenciennes , as the river became too narrow for their boats. Later, the land at Le Queroy became a freehold belonging to the Episcopal mass at Cambrai and by the name ofNoflus, latinized from Novem fluctibus.

Yet during the eighteenth century, the only schooling that the sons and daughters of non-commissioned officers would have received was in cursing and fending for themselves and, if they were girls, making themselves useful by washing and sewing for their father’s soldier comrades. Although regimental schools were increasingly being established, with senior non-commissioned officers initially doing the teaching, these were originally intended to teach illiterate recruits how to read, write and calculate.

But then because many of those illiterate recruits were army children, the realisation dawned that the regimental schools might as well start teaching these soldiers-in-the-making, and their future wives for many army daughters later ‘married into’ the regiment while they were still young. And occupying army children with schoolwork and needlework also had the advantage of keeping them out of trouble!

By the nineteenth century, regimental schools catering for army children and teaching a wide range of subjects practical, as well as academic were relatively commonplace, and in this respect, the army was ahead of its time. The regimental schools were replaced by garrison schools in , and administrative changes have continued to be made in response to changing times, with the British Families Education Service BFES being set up to educate army children in Germany in the aftermath of World War II, for instance.

Today, the schooling of army children abroad is provided by Service Children’s Education SCE , and when in Britain, army children attend local schools, that is, unless they are at boarding school. Officers’ children may always have received an education appropriate to their perceived status, but at the price of separation from their parents often for years on end , for they were generally sent to a boarding establishment, be it a public school, a ladies’ academy or a finishing school, in Britain.

In addition, there were military boarding schools: It has now been decades since all army children have been able to enjoy the dubious privilege of a boarding-school education, thanks to a continuity of education allowance CEA , or boarding-school allowance BSA , and subsidised flights to join their parents during the holidays. Indeed, the agonising decision as to whether to sacrifice family togetherness in favour of the undoubted benefits of stability and continuity of curricula during crucial pre-GCSE and A’ level years is one that all peripatetic army families must continue to take.

White-clad army children line up in front of the Buena Vista School in Gibraltar. Commissioned into the Royal Engineers, he served post-war in Egypt. In , he emigrated with his wife, Beryl, to Canada, where he worked as a hydro-electric engineer.

SCHOOLING Nowadays, army children are taught in proper schools, by proper teachers, and sit proper exams that, if passed, will give them recognised qualifications that will help them to progress in the world.

About Mark Newbrook Dear Mr. Doutre, I was reading what Mark Newbrook said about me. I tried vainly to tell him that I don’t exactly use linguistics per se. Although I often veer from the “straight and narrow,” I tend to boil down all the “linguistics” I use to spiritual, caste, and place names. Those words are as hard to change as the Rock of Gibraltar.

He has also accused me of using 18th century ideas about linguistics.

From Auckland you drive south via the awesome Coromandel Peninsula to Rotorua and Taupo to take in a little Maori culture and enjoy the volcanic area. You then continue south to Wellington via the wine growing regions around Napier. After crossing the Cook Strait by ferry the route takes you down the east coast to Kaikoura where you can join a whale or dolphin spotting excursion and Christchurch, then follow the Southern Alps all the way to Wanaka, Queenstown and our most beautiful attraction – the Milford Sound.

This itinerary offers much variety with almost equal time in the North Island and in the South Island. However choosing will still be difficult as there are so many choices, particularly in Wanaka and Queenstown. In the late s this was a thriving gold mining and kauri logging centre. This is also where you should stop and buy groceries if you intend preparing your own meals for the next 2 nights as there is not a lot of choice at Hahei! Continue north direction Town. But most importantly, please remember that the locals are not on vacation and are quite often in a hurry to get somewhere.

So if someone is pressuring you from behind, just pull over and allow them to pass. You will enjoy the driving much much more and the locals will in turn be much much more friendlier when you do eventually cruise to your destination at your own pace! There are places to pull over and take photos all along of this dramatic coastline. This stop is excellent, giving you a real taste for the New Zealand bush without much effort.

Do the Greens have a candidate vetting problem? Shortly after the election it is discovered that one of their new MPs fudged her credentials as a human rights lawyer. Another successful newcomer has a more established social media presence than the business experience she claims to have.

In talking to them, I learned that a majority of the guys using the sites are in their late 30s, have a few kids, and are looking for a wife to settle down with. Overall, my experiences with the sites were varied, with one emerging as a clear winner. Since I find the notion of paying for online dates a little too similar to paying for sex, I gave up on the site.

After a week on this site with seemingly no coherent mail, I quit it too. As a result, most of my interactions came from MilitaryCupid. The registration process was thorough: Asking my preferences from eye color all the way to income. Regardless of age though, none of them ever responded to my attempts to meet in person. We would have conversations about hobbies, school, the weather, and weekend plans, but no one wanted to exchange phone numbers, or set up a place to meet.
