  8. Total Chaos ! you hit the nail on the head there fella, well done !!! Absolutely true !
  9. Miscarriages of justice occur on here too ! Someone can call me someones' 'Bum chum', yes I am Gay ! But when I call them an 'insidious cretin' I get a ban !!
  10. 15 sets of remains of British Soldiers were found in 2009 at Beaucamps Ligny in France. There could be Sheffield men amongst them. There is a campaign running to find living relatives of these men to try and determine through DNA testing their identities. There are a possible 58 soldiers who these remains could be of. 54 living relatives/DNA donors have been found, of the 4 that are remaining Henry William Parker of Sheffield, is the only one where there is a prospect of finding a relative. The widowed mother of the soldier, Frances Selina Parker, lived at Petre Street, Burngreave during the interwar period and possibly continued to live there until her death at the age of 91 in 1956. The soldier had two sisters, Naomi b.1886 and Nellie b.1889. There were also two brothers George Robert b. 1895 and Fred b.1902. Nothing is known of Fred but George married Mabel Langhorn in Sheffield on 18 August 1915. Mabel died in Sheffield in 1972. George was wounded twice during the war and the couple had a son, George K Parker b.1924 who married Dorothy Taylor b.1925 at Sheffield in 1952. George and Dorothy had one son, Michael P Parker b. 1958 in Sheffield. That is about all the information that I have. Parker is obviously a fairly common name which makes it very difficult to trace the family through the BMD index and even more so when trying to trace the great nephew, Michael Parker, using the electoral rolls for South Yorkshire. So looking for Michael P. Parker. regards Dean.
  11. Wipe my feet Boil Friday. Better than the threesome you indulge in with Fishface and Meth's man
  12. Boil Friday, gotcha !! you now have to revert to homophobic insults of the most obscene type to try and get one back, mods, are you going to allow such homophobic language like that ?
  13. I have my opinion's on this thread, I am in the 'don't give' camp, our own come first !! But what I really like about this thread is the utter and complete defeat of the 'usual suspects' by Peer Gynt, namely Boil Friday, Fishface Halibut no but, but yes but, etc, Methlebel, aka Whitby Boy, and all the rest of the Left knicker wetter's, apologist's, etc, etc, Peer Gynt for Prime Minister !!!
  14. Where can I go to vote 'Yes' for these van's, apparently there are '60' yes 60, people that have complained about them, how many have agreed to them ? I want to register my 'yes' for them, how do I do it so that it is represented on the national news to counter the 'no' brigade ? (usual suspects Pi55 O55)
  15. It's early 1990's, brand new 125cc Kawasaki for my job at Penistone. Long story short it got nicked. Long story short I found out who had taken it. Long story short informed Police, they came to my house and sat at my kitchen table and said yes, we know who took it, we also know that one of our colleagues had stopped them on said bike with no helmet etc, but seeing as he gave us 'valuable info' we didn't nick him!!!!! Also that my bike's engine was now in a home made go-kart!!!!!!! This was at the bottom of Bellhouse road, (number 614). The person who took it was given 7 years in prison for drug dealing a few months later, (front of The Star) he has also been sent back down again in the last year or so. He also got my best mates daughter on to drugs, being her supplier etc. He and his large family of scroats live on the Flower Estate, can I name him ??
  16. Only 4 posts on this ! Unbelievable !! Shame also on the BBC, if it was someone being charged with the Stephen Lawrence/Damilola Taylor murder after so many years there would be blanket coverage !! FACT! Wind yer neck's in before you open 'em usual suspects !
  17. I know there are two Cathedrals in Sheffield, but ask anyone to point you in the direction of Sheffield Cathedral you will end up at the Anglican one. I have photographed and researched every memorial/roll of honour in the Cathedral, the two 'missing' roll's of honour are not there, I do have images/drawings of said rolls from Archive 'Diocs', and also a copy of Canon Odom's book detailing the rolls and where they were in the Cathedral.
  18. Daft answer time, seeing as this is the Sheffield Cathedral thread I suppose I'm on about Sheffield Cathedral! I asked at the office who went and fetched an old lady along who they said knew more about the Cathedral than most.
  19. Canon Odom mentions a Roll of Honour commemorating the men of the Church that fell in WW1, also one to a York & Lancaster Regiment. I have managed to find a technical drawing by James R. Wigfall, A.R.I.B.A. from 1921, of the Roll of Honour in a Cathedral .Dioc'. I have asked at the Cathedral about both memorials but have drawn a blank, they must be somewhere ?? Dean.
  20. Can now see 3 pumps spraying from the canal side at the left of the fire, looking from Pitsmoor, as I say 'our boys' look like they are on top of it. My worry now is the 'sh*te that is going to run back into the canal !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  21. I think 'our boys' are on top now !! The 'white' C.A.R.P. and about 8 pumps are spraying thousands of gallons onto the conflagration as I type and watch through my window. Very impressive 'boys'. Google Earth will give you an overview of the yard where the fire started.
  22. I saw this start from my allotment, just was wondering who was burning 'copper wire' on a Sunday diner time. Went home and it just got bigger. Been watching now for the duration through the 'Binos', I have a perfect view of the incident. I would like to know what went wrong with Sheffield's C.A.R.P. pump? It went aloft but no water, then it went down again, then came back up again but still no water. At about 5pm a 'White' larger telescopic pump turned up and proceeded to spew forth, Sheffield's C.A.R.P. at the same time was parked in a large car park just below the Supertram Depot extended yet again, there was just a quick 'spray' and down again it went !!
  23. York & Lancs museum very good. The KOYLI museum at Doncaster very good too, but these are all military themed enterprises. Watch for a book by Peter Warr next year re Sheffield at home during the Great War. You could also go to the Local Studies Library in town and search what they have.
  24. Sorted guys, thanks for the response, will remember you in future.
