Our Father's Letters from the Battlefield in Somalia and Ethiopia


The East African Campaign, 1940-1943: Our Father's Letters from the Battlefield in Somalia and Ethiopia Sarah Sherlock and Jonathan Howard In April 1941 John Howard's Battalion, the 5th Bn. King's African Rifles, was the first to enter Addis Ababa and bring to an end five years of Italian rule. They had been part of General Cunningham's force that had swept in from Kenya through Somalia and into eastern Ethiopia - necessitating a 2000 miles supply line. They took a matter of months to attain their objectives, in what is generally considered the swiftest of campaigns, for the distance, ever fought. Less well known was the subsequent campaign in the southern Rift Valley, when the Battalion was despatched to chase, defeat and take the surrender of several hundred thousand Italian troops that were regrouping in Jimma in the hope of a German victory in North Africa. This might have enabled the Germans to come to the Italians' aid in East Africa. John Howard wrote to his mother in England almost every week. His letters to her whilst on campaign, supplemented by photographs, forms a rare primary resource for this aspect of the liberation of Ethiopia. They were archived for the Kenya National Archives, but they have not yet been studied as a part of Ethiopian historiography. The Anglo-Ethiopian Society is affiliated to the University of London’s Centre of African Studies (CAS) and all of our events at SOAS are co-hosted with CAS.

Autumn events to help farmers and crofters optimise winter nutrition and grazing availability


Cattle nutrition SAC livestock experts will deliver a session on cattle nutrition to release genetic potential and optimise beef enterprise performance. There is wide variation in silage quality between farms and across years. This is compounded by variability in the weather, further impacting quality, yield, cow body condition score and calf performance. This presentation will cover: Setting the scene: Weather variation over recent years and its impact on body condition and winter rationing and how these factors present significant risk to fertility and performance. Variables that affect nutritional demands and why this means no two years are the same.  Understanding changes in demand over the winter, including the forage, energy and mineral requirements through pregnancy and weaning.  Interpreting the key components of a forage analysis and assessing the silage clamp. This will include forage budgeting and the significance of dry matter. Balancing nutritional requirements with this year’s forage quality and stocks and adapting nutritional needs within existing housing systems.  Undertaking cow body condition assessments and using this as a management tool via targeted nutrition. Gauging body condition score from delegates and how this impacts factors such as production, fertility and lameness. Setting targets for weaned calves and presenting the right nutrition. Minimising growth checks through management and nutrition. Interpreting the feed label and reviewing the ration to ensure it is being fed and performs as expected. Grassland management 5Agri specialists Ian Cairns, James Hadwin and Rhidian Jones will deliver workshops on soil and grassland management. The event will provide guidance to help farmers respond to the challenging conditions faced this year with winter storms and a late spring followed by a summer drought. Attention to the basics of soil and grassland management goes a long way to building the resilience required to withstand these challenging weather conditions. Among the topics covered will be: Importance of soil structure and drainage, correcting pH and nutrient deficiencies to ensure high forage production and to extend the grazing season. Deciding on when a sward needs renewing, choosing the correct seed mixture and methods of sward renewal. Much of our grassland is of low production potential and often dry matter yields can be doubled by sward renovation. Managing extensive, low input or upland grazing for best livestock performance and winter feed supply. The pros and cons of various grazing systems including implementing a rotational grazing system to increase the useable yield of grass and improve the quality of the grass being grazed. Conservation of grass for winter feeding and best practice to optimise yield and quality and minimise losses. This is very important when feed is in short supply. Forage crop options for extending the grazing season and providing winter feed for livestock.
