THE HISTORICAL 1824 WATER WHEEL OF CHRISTIANBURG

By Dmitri Allicock

On the shores of Upper Demerara lies one of a kind

A precious Water Wheel that takes you back in time

A treasure of forgotten history that can be seen still

Only remnant that is left of the Paterson’s Sawmill

LAST OF THE MOHICANS ~THE GAEL~Royal Scots Dragoon Guards.

Published on Feb 12, 2009

Dougie MacLean’s most famous pieces include “The Gael”, from his 1990 album The Search, which was adapted by Trevor Jones as the main theme to The Last of the Mohicans (1992); and “Caledonia”, from his first album. The World Famous Royal Scots Dragoon Guards have been at the forefront of Pipe music since first achieving world wide fame in 1972 when their haunting version of “Amazing Grace” rocketed to the top of the charts all around the world.The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards are Scotland`s senior regiment and only regular cavalry regiment. The Regiment was formed in 1971 from the amalgamation of the 3rd Carabiniers ( whom were themselves the result of the amalgamation of the 6th Dragoon Guards the Carabiniers and the 3rd the Prince of Wales Dragoon Guards in 1922) and The Royal Scots Greys (2nd Dragoons).
The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards are Scotland’s most senior and only regular cavalry regiment, formed in 1678. The Regiment has recently re-rolled to Light Cavalry after 75 years in tanks and has also moved from Germany to Fife. The Regiment is currently undergoing training to be at readiness as the Light Cavalry Regiment of choice.
The new role of Light Cavalry is at the forefront of the British Army’s organisation, primarily as a mounted combat unit, but also working alongside other armies around the world. The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards form the main armoured force for the 7th Armoured Brigade, The Famous Desert Rats.

The National Bird of Guyana, and a story to tell

An evolutionary mystery with that strange smell

A clumsy bird in flight, shape and origin, bizarre

And the coast washes in the Atlantic’s tumble

There lies green blankets of sugarcane flat lands

Where the ships announces themselves so grand

Nautical charts and instruments rules the stars  Continue reading
