Fort Nelson a History and Description (Solent Pape&hellip by Garry Mitchell
Most people passing Portsmouth on the M27 will have seen the immense red brick forts brooding over the city. An engineer, and the son of an engineer, I was myself fascinated by them, especially as I couldn't see any weapon ports facing downhill. Research found for me the Palmerston Forts Society, and the excellent range of reference works published under its auspices. This booklet deals with Fort Nelson, now a museum of artillery and a scheduled ancient monument. Highly readable, it tells the story of the fort, from its beginning before the Franco-Prussian war right through to its restoration and opening as an artillery collection. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 30 Nov 2013
I bought it for my wife, who suffers from rheumatoid arthritis. The minuscule keys on the remote control for our new Toshiba soundbar are too ill-defined and stiff for her to operate, and since the soundbar times out in ten minutes if the TV is off, something had to be done.

It was delivered inside 24 hours. I fitted the batteries and started to set it up. The procedure is very straightforward, the only fiddly part being to ensure that the two remotes' transducers were lined up. After a few goes everything was complete. The buttons are hard, protrude well from the case and operate with a very tactile feel. Highly recommended.

I expected my new flat-screen television to have disappointing sound and I wasn't disappointed: it was disappointing! It is a comparatively small device - 26-inch - in a medium-sized room; any enhancement would also have to be compact. I chose the Toshiba because it was compact but also had a sub-woofer.

It arrived minus the optical cable I had ordered (coming no doubt from another location) so I connected it to the TV's external speaker jack. I powered the soundbar on, hit the input button a few times, and - absolute transformation. The sound is bright with good depth. Speech is crystal-clear and music reproduction is also excellent. The soundbar is so small that I can… Read more
