The tactics of the Battle of the Somme..
-German barbed wire cut & trenches and dug outs smashed.
-British troops being able to walk over no mans land and not run after a huge artillery bombardment.
-Carry over heavy trench repair equipment to rebuild and defend German trenches so they couldn’t reclaim them
Is there any I haven’t put?
& I need to know evidence on how they didn’t work (such as not many people were killed because of the artillery bombardment so when the men tried to walk over, they had to run, and the barbed wire being like 30 Meters wide so it wasn’t cut properly.) and evidence that they did work?
Thank you.

PS: THIS IS A TRUE STORY

In September 1955, James Dean was killed in a horrific car accident whilst he was driving his Porsche sports car. After the crash the car was seen as very unlucky.
a) When the car was towed away from accident scene and taken to a garage, the engine slipped out and fell onto a mechanic, shattering both of his legs.
b) Eventually the engine was bought by a doctor, who put it into his racing car and was killed shortly afterwards, during a race. Another racing driver, in the same race, was killed in his car, which had James Dean’s driveshaft fitted to it.
c) When James Dean’s Porsche was later repaired, the garage it was in was destroyed by fire.
d) Later the car was displayed in Sacramento, but it fell off it’s mount and broke a teenager’s hip.
e) In Oregon, the trailer that the car was mounted on slipped from it’s towbar and smashed through the front of a shop.
f) Finally, in 1959, the car mysteriously broke into 11 pieces while it was sitting on steel supports.

Question: If you don’t believe in curses, are you brave enough to take home one or all of the 11 remaining pieces of the car?
If you do believe in curses….what do you think about this story?

Last week, I had my husband’s car parked up at work and I was notified that our car was broken into. The passenger side window was smashed and the thief took our GPS unit. The repair for the window cost 240 and the unit itself would be about 500. My husband call our insurance company and they said they wont cover it because we have a 500 dollar deductible for auto insurance and the GPS is considered home insurance which is 1,000. Is there anything that can be done to have insurance pay for this? I mean we want my company to be responsible for it but they are saying this isn’t there issue. Any help would be great
Thanks

OK – so it was this lady’s fault, smashed right into him. She’s admitted was her fault and she has full insurance, my son only has 3rd party.
Both doors and pillar damaged (maybe structural as well)
It’s not an expensive car, my son is 17 – first car, couldn’t afford a flash one – anyhow, so I would think the repairs would outweigh the cost of the car.

So does Insurance only pay out the market value only, or market value plus a bit more, or trade in value…

What could I expect as I’ve never dealt with Insurance before, just heard they screw everyone over :-(

Thanks.
What I mean about ‘extra’ is we’ve just spent a grand on it in the past 4 months, engine work done and brand new radiator etc….

My tub on 2nd floor overflowed and did damage to kitchen ceiling, a little to walls, and some in bathroom. I woke up to the smell of smoderomg wires. I call 911 and go outside with baby. Fire department pulls two fuses (of 8) I call my insurance company, and the doorknob head adjuster comes. First he’s not going to pay for a motel, but I tell him that the fans his “cleaning and restoration” company set up are blocking the doorway, where they have to be, so I don’t have a legal exit, it’s obstructed. Also, I don’t need plaster falling on the baby’s head–I can’t be moving the stove and fridge every time I need a plate out of the cabinet. Restoration company had 3 huge fans and a dehumidifier almost as big as my stove in my small kitchen. Then he tells me that the restoration company is going to do the repairs–I said: “NO WAY!” and didn’t sign an;ything that even allowed to get an estimate. So a few weeks went by –I got one bid that expired after 10 days. I was waiting for doorknob head adjuster to let me know how much he had paid restoration company to dry out my kitchen–and I had some other pressing matters having to do with work comp–had deadlines to meet. I know I have 6 months at least on the house claim. Friday, I get a letter in the mail from doorknob head, and a check for $804. He says the resotration company can sheetrock 1/3 of the ceiling for that. He paid them $3000 to set up a few fans and knock down about a 4×4 area of wet plaster ceiling , about 1/4 of my ceiling. Now I’m FLIPPIN! For the $3000 plus the $804–I could have done it myself, and had a whole new kitchen! I’m just not sure if I have replacement insurance–I should. I called the agent I deal with and told her I wouldn’t accept that, and she said I had too–that I never called doorknob head back so he got the estimates, even though I told him the cleaning/restoration company wouldn’t be doing any work after the “drying out.” I told her : “Know way–this house is going to get fixed right and it’s going to be safe–you’re getting me a whole new piece of sheet rock, and there is bathroom damage and there are electrical safety concerns that have NOT been addressed. She told me I could cash the check and do whatever I wanted. I know that to cash the check would mean that I accept the $804 as a settlement. Who do I talk to next–should I demand another adjuster? I know I have to get another estimate, and that shouldn’t be a problem. Should I contact the State Commisoner of Insurance! Looks like the only ones into insurance fraud are the insurance companies. This SKS Every day plaster is falling from the slats in the exposed area, my kitchen light is down, and my upstairs toilet is laying on it’s side. My homeowners’ deductible is $250, so that’s not a big deal, but how can I tell if I have replacement? I read that policy over and over, and most of it is still like a can of worms. A friend who used to sell insurance said I have the right policy, but he couldn’t tell, either. Their forms change every few years. Do I have six months to accept? If I call the commissioner, will they burn my house down, or just raise my rates or cancel me? I’ve been in my old house 27 years, and other than a couple of trees go down, I’ve only had one small claim in the mid 80′s. Then this Friday, somebody also smashed out my windshield–same insurance company–it’s fixed already, but I have to fix a headlight, too. Can anybody please be my free lawyer but on a contingency basis, who is a bulldog in court? I have the house claim, the car claim, the work comp claim, a medical malpractice claim, and a labor law claim for wrongful termination. I’m on unemployment. Worked for my company for 7 years, and was never going to buy a car while I worked for them, but I January, my old car threw a rod, and I had to have a car. Hard to pay car and house payments on UCI, grandson lives with me–I think I’m screwed! Can’t even get a jewler to give me half way decent price for my wedding ring! I just hope I can hawk my house for the malpractice and labor law claims, or I’m screwed again. I won’t be able to hang onto my house if I can’t convince a jury, and I can be convincing. I have good documentation from at least 6 of the 7 years I worked for my company. Will attorneys ever accept houses as collateral, and work contingently until we win? I’m a 57 year old single mom, and now have my daughter and grandson, age 2 living with me. She helps, but doesn’t make a whole lot of money. Baby boy is pretty neat–we just pulled him out of a daycare that lots of people like, but I didn’t. The licensee got busted for having 18 kids and one caregiver, and some other stuff. I was suspicious of some stuff there, so my daughter and I found a daycare where the lady is only going to take 5 little ones, and she homeschooled(s) all of her kids. He’s just too little to be left in a situation like he was. I’m SOOO busy with all of this st

Hi, yesterday late at night our car passenger side of the window got smash by a robber trying to take our stereo system but they can’t get it out they left marks and scratch on it. Also our slider door the bottom of it gets scratch and it is messed up too because I think that they try to get in the slider door first then the glasses. We call the cops already and they give us a case number. Then I call my insurance State Farm and they told me to tell them which body shop are we going to get it fix then call them first and foremost before we make agreement to do anything at then they told me Lithia will be great because they don’t just do glasses repair they do whole body shop kind of mechanic. So we went there and then the guy said that he is going to give an estimate to the insurance company and they told us to wait for the phone call, so does that mean that everything is taken care of and we don’t have to call State Farm because he is alread giving an estimate to the Insurance company
