World War I revisited- Where is Cashier?
It was Saturday Night and we had just enough time for another panel discussion on World War I. The last few years have been the anniversary of World War I and this is the year the
joined in on the fight. We went to Kirby's Beer Store of Wichita, KS just as with our last panel discussions as with US
Present tonight was myself Red Rob Blogger and Paul Harvey Oswald.
Blue never made it and Casher O’Neill is missing in action. As Paul Harvey
Oswald has explained it to me, Casher was sent to Kenya Europe
for World War I observations. But he never made it back. Now he is missing in
action and we suspect he is missing for good.
While at Kirby’s their TV had some rock bands playing on the tube. For a while I saw Anarchy in the USA by Mötley Crüe. Then I saw Muse playing from their new album Drones. Both sets seemed pretty good to me.
It was about this time that patrons of the bar were jeering an old and time worn rock band. Our serious discussion was interrupted by these hooligans. But we didn’t let it get the best of us.
Red Rob Blogger: Wow! This is the same year of the Bolshevik Revolution in
lot of blogs have been writing articles about this.
The Russian Empire collapsed with the abdication of Emperor Nicholas II, and the old regime was replaced by a provisional government during the first revolution of February 1917 (March in the Gregorian calendar; the older Julian calendar was in use in Russia at the time). In the second revolution that October, the Provisional Government was removed and replaced with the Bolshevik state.
March 12, 13, 14 part of the Russian Revolution began. It took the form of rioting.
On March 13 Prince Golitsin was removed from office. Since the extinction of the Korecki family in the 17th century, the Golitsyns have claimed dynastic seniority in the House of Gediminas. Notable members include Vasily Vasilyevich Golitsyn (1643-1714), Boris Alexeyevich Golitsyn (1654-1714) and Dmitry Mikhaylovich Golitsyn (1665-1737). All this was in vain when the Bolsheviks won the revolution and all aristocracy was wiped out.
By October of 1917, the Soviet had completed their revolution.
Paul Harvey Oswald: This is the 100th anniversary of the
US getting into the war. On April 6
the US declared war on Germany. This
was close to this time that the French Amiral
Charner was sunk by a German
sub of the coast of Syria.
The ship had been rescuing Armenians.
Other ships that were sunk in that war include the Greif and the Alcantara, in 1916. That took place in the
North Sea. Hey, it shows a
suspicious lifeboat with a guy who looks just like Casher.
Red Rob Blogger: Wow! Sounds of Silence by Disturbed. (That was playing on the TV.)
Paul Harvey Oswald: It was in 1917 that the Turkish Grand Vizior Said Halim Pasha resigned. He looked at that picture of soldiers. It looks like Casher using a barrel velocette.
Red Rob Blogger: It seems like
has had its share of weird leaders and it has them even today with Turkish
President RecepTayyip Erdogan. He is a real fascist.
I read about the changes in uniforms at the beginning of World War I. Some French troops entered WWI were wearing the old red coats. An observer thought he was looking at a poppy field where a battle had taken place. When he got closer he realized it was a field full of dead French troops.
Paul Harvey Oswald: I just saw a high level meeting by the Germans, with a guy that looks just like Casher, with an eye patch, a monocle and a spy spatial. It looked like him. after the meeting broke up he was leaving with the monocle and eye patch.
Maybe it was him. Who knows. He has never come back.
So we both admitted that Casher has gone to be in the past. But we will not forget him or his contributions to this panel.
