The Duchess Countess (English Edition) von [Catherine Ostler]

Just started this, because it's about the live of the Duchess of Kingston, the very same woman, who owned the wooden ship, I'm actually building. She seemed to have been an illustrious person.

Cheers Rob

"It lieth low near merry England’s heart Like a long-buried sin; and Englishmen Forget that in its death their sires had part. And, like a sin, Time lays it bare again.........Oh, look a..........Squirrel !!

Where is this phrase...   minus the squirrel part, from?

It's from the poem URICONIUM by Wilfred Owen.

I've discovered audiobooks on Youtube.  I've been listening to the techno-thriller Act of Valor which flies under the Tom Clancy name while authored by two other dudes.  Still...   pretty good.

I love 'reading' books while I model.

A book originally published in 1961 by Shirer who reported in Germany up to the outbreak and then covered Nurember. He apparently then had access to state files.and diaries………I read it probably 40 years ago…….so here goes again….
