John King Irelands Forgotten Explorer

£ 9.99
   + P&P
In 1861 an Irish-born explorer emerged from the Australian outback, sole survivor of the country's greatest expedition. John King from Moy, Co. Tyrone, had crossed the arid continent and discovered tracts of rich, fertile land. With eight men dead, King's triumph was one of the world's great feats of endurance and thousands gathered to crown him Australia's first hero ... Yet within weeks the handsome 22-year-old had been airbrushed from popular history. It was determined that King, an 'Irish working man' was an unsuitable champion and the two dead leaders of the party, the Anglo-Irish gentleman, Robert O'Hara Burke and English scientist William Wills, would be history's heroes. Mentally and physically, King was a better equipped explorer than Burke or Wills. Educated at a Quaker primary school, King lived through the Great Famine, graduated after seven years at a tough Dublin military college, fought in the Indian Mutiny and was a teacher, linguist, musician, army sharpshooter, horseman and camel handler. John King: Ireland's Forgotten Explorer reveals the string of injustices done to John King by powerful contemporaries and subsequent historians, and on the 150th anniversary of his survival, seeks to give him his rightful place in the Burke and Wills historiography.

My Ancestor was a Woman at War

My Ancestor was a Woman at War - Click for large image
By Emma Jolly; 312 pages; ISBN 978-1-907199-18-9.
Women often did more in wars than is popularly assumed. This book is intended to explore women's roles in the past and even if your ancestor did not serve officially, there were other areas in which she may have worked. During war, women worked in the roles left by men who had entered the armed forces; these roles include working in mines, on farms, in factories, in transport, in civil defence and at home, These women made an invaluable contribution to the war effort.

This book seeks to highlight the connections across women's war work, through time and between different areas of service. Some women may have served in different organisations in one war, for example, or have served in both world wars. Researching female ancestors at war requires a different approach from that of standard military history research; flexibility and dedication. This guide will help.
