Remember the Great War Dead Fulflood & Weeke

Remember the Great War Dead Fulflood & Weeke

Welcome to the Winchester Great War Dead Fulflood & Weeke Project Men of the 1st Hampshires in Ploegsteert (Plugstreet) Wood, Flanders, during the winter of 1914-15  November 11, 2018 will mark the centenary of the Armistice that finally silenced the guns in the Great War. Up and down the country, in what will undoubtedly be deeply poignant commemorative services, communities will remember the hundreds of thousands of soldiers, sailors and airmen who died in a conflict that is still etched on our national psyche. Fulflood and Weeke in Winchester will be no exception. The churches of St. Paul and St. Matthew contain memorials to no fewer than 91 men from the parish who went off to war never to return and they will be remembered at services in November. Although these men died more than a century ago their stories are only now being retold thanks to the efforts of a local research group. Over the past three years the researchers have worked to build up a picture of the lives of the parish’s war dead – where they lived and worked, where they went to school, their families, and, of course, where they fought and died. The stories we have glimpsed have been moving and fascinating. Young men from the streets of Fulflood, Weeke and elsewhere in Winchester went to fight and die not only on the Western Front but also at Gallipoli, Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) and even Russia. Winchester, of course, was a garrison town so many joined those regiments based here – the Hampshire Regiment, the Rifle Brigade and the King’s Royal Rifle Corps. Others served in the Royal Navy and the fledgling air force. Men from Canada, Australia, New Zealand and East Africa with family connections in the parish, volunteered to fight for the “Mother Country” and their names are remembered on the memorials. One of these men had been on Captain Scott’s final expedition to Antarctica in 1912 and was to die in a German prisoner-of-war camp. Many schools where the men went to are still here. Several went as infants to Western School, then in Elm Rd, and onto St. Thomas School in Mews Lane, which was eventually amalgamated into Kings’ School. There, they are remembered on the St. Thomas School Memorial Board. Some went onto Peter Symond’s Grammar School, now the Sixth Form College, and they too have a memorial board. Some went to prep schools and onto public schools such as Winchester College where they are also remembered. Some schools they attended no longer exist, for example, St. Peter’s in Chesil Street - but their records do. The time has now come to make their stories accessible to all interested people and aspects of this will take money!  With just 1-click you can donate to this cause on the Contribute button on the right side of this page. * The most expensive item will be to publish a book of their stories which we aim to have available by Remembrance Sunday, on the 11th November this year.* We also plan to have portable permanent exhibition boards which can be displayed in:* St. Mathew’s and St. Paul’s, the churches of the parish of Fulflood & Weeke.* Local schools* Hampshire Record Office & the Discovery Centre* Community halls* Relevant military museums & local military bases* Creation of a website with all the information on it which will have an element of interrogation for example, do any of the men live in your street?* We hope further that:* Teaching resources will be created in liaison with local schools. Many current pupils in Winchester, especially at Western, Westgate and Peter Symmond's, may live in houses that were once the homes of these men.* A programme of Public Lectures & Guided Tours will happen.Long-term, we also hope to tell the stories of all the men who went to fight in World Wars I & II but that is not part of the current project. Thank you for reading this page and we do hope that you find this a worthwhile cause to contribute to.You can further help if you think you are related to any of the men and even have relevant photographs.

AR RAHMAN FOUNDATION

AR RAHMAN FOUNDATION

This money goes to all the Muslim Countries suffering in this world.It is absolutely central to the Muslim identity to feel care and compassion for one’s fellow human beings. Several ahadith (sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him) refer to this deep affection and brotherhood: “you will not believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself”; “the believers are like one body in their mutual love and affection: if one limb is injured, the rest responds with sleeplessness and fever”. If a Muslim feels the pain of his or her fellow human being, and wishes the same comfort and good life for others which he wishes for himself – it is a natural reaction to give in charity, to ease this suffering.As well as the indisputable benefits for those receiving charity, Islam also highlights the spiritual need of those with wealth to give some of it away selflessly. It helps Muslims to remember that they are humble before Allah, and that every blessing they have in this life comes from Him – therefore they must not hoard it, but recognise that He wishes for us to be compassionate and share our provisions with our brothers and sisters in humanity. Indeed, the Qur’an warns against any feelings of pride, or reminding others of the charity one has given: “you who believe, do not cancel out your charitable deeds with reminders and hurtful words” (2:262). It also reminds us that there is a “recognised right, for the needy and deprived” over our wealth (70:24-5), so by giving, a Muslim is fulfilling a duty to those in need, preventing him or her from becoming proud of their own generosity.In the Qur’an, Allah describes those who prevent the supporting of orphans and the feeding of the poor as “those who reject the faith” (107:1-3), while emphasising that charity should be given in “prosperity or adversity” (3:134), without fear for one’s wealth, and having faith that a sincere act of giving can only bring abundant reward to the giver: “those who spend their wealth in Allah’s cause are like grains of corn which produce seven ears, each bearing a hundred grains” (2:261). Indeed, one of the five central pillars of Islam is zakat, or almsgiving – the obligatory tax due on an adult Muslim’s wealth every year, dedicated to supporting the poor and needy – making charity an undeniable cornerstone of the faith.

Limb Aid International

Hi everybody, I hope you will take the time to read this as Limd Aid international support the lives of people with donations,and assistance all around the world. Please support us and lets get the help people deserve. Thank You  Christian  Common complications from amputations are:  Heart complications (heart attacks, heart failure)Blood clotsSurgical site infectionsPneumoniaAdditional surgical procedures neededAside from suffering complications as result of the actual limb removal, victims also face a number of long-term effects after the amputation. Phantom limb pain is when an amputee experiences pain, burning, or itching sensations that seem to be coming from the limb that has been amputated. 50-80% of amputation victims suffer phantom pain after the loss of a limb, though women more commonly suffer phantom limb pain than men. It has also been found that upper limb loss victims suffer phantom limb pain more than lower limb loss victims. Phantom limb pain symptoms can be severe. Some victims experience brief flashes of pain while others complain of constant, numbing pain. Other physical long term effects of amputations include:  Contractures- a shortening of the muscles. This generally happens after prolonged bed rest or prolonged sitting.Death of Skin Flaps- If circulation is inadequate death of the tissue that make up skin flaps is possible. This sometimes results in follow up surgeries to the affected limb.Wound Opening- infection, excess swelling in the stump, and too much tension in the sutures can cause the wound to open which will prolong recovery.Prosthetic Complications- redness, skin breakdown, bruising, or blister formation in the stump are all possible side effects of prosthetic complications.Amputation victims suffer psychological effects as well. Loss of limb victims report feelings of loss similar to experiencing the death of a loved one. Psychological treatment is necessary for amputation victims. After an amputation victim’s face the challenge of coping with:  the loss of sensation from the amputated limbthe loss of function from the amputation limbthe change in the victim’s sense of body image and how they view themselves as well as how others now view themThese psychological issues often cause negative thoughts and emotions. This is especially true in people who had an emergency amputation, as they did not have time to mentally prepare themselves for the effects of surgery. Depression, anxiety, denial, grief, the possibility of suffering post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and even suicidal thoughts are all common psychological effects after an amputation. Please donate our worthy cause. Thanks  Limb Aid Internatinal

All people were born good with the advantage of having life upon mother earth that gives her wealth in diverse manners. It is that a new born baby may wish upon the milk of poverty or even calamities. Does a baby know what the various conditions are? They seek love from the parents and others then later may come to realize that the state of which they are raised in is not what it needed for fundemental living and contribution to society. We as a nation of humanbeing are sought out with love to give love.,yet I say help those who are economically-/globally disabled; invite the hungry to learn and to sit down for a means to and end that is contributions towards the greater good. Show the sick and poor that there are still people who care, it will make their burdens a little easier to bear. There’s not many who reaches out with love and concern,without them wanting something back in return...... Let us give them fish to eat in order that they may regain their strength and then the equipment tools-/know (to) how in order to function and contribute to society... Therefore lets us come together to help our nation...the human family of unity Thank you very much! click  to make a contrubutiongive however much you want ..(all payments are secure ) WITH LOVE,Founder of African Restoration e.V.
