Student vets strip off for charity calendar to raise money for Australian farmers

Sydney, Australia: Dozens of veterinary students have put down their stethoscopes and stripped off their lab coats to raise money for Australian farmers. The Sydney School of Veterinary Science, a branch of Sydney University, has been producing a charity nude calendar for more than a decade with third year students from the Camden branch typically in charge of organising the shoot. Around 50 of the university’s 130 third year students bravely took part for the 2021 calendar, strategically using cowboy hats, cows, horses and hay to cover themselves. The photoshoot for this year’s calendar, snapped by Wollongong-based photographer Meredith Schofield, occurred at a number of the University’s farms, a local dairy owned by the Biffin family, and a private animal-devoted residence that were all within the Camden area of NSW. Now in its 11th year, the Bums for the Bush calendar has become an annual highlight at Sydney University's veterinary science faculty, which has raised almost $100,000 for rural communities, mental health awareness and other worthy causes with their cheeky photos.

Project Skyfall Superyacht begins construction

Netherlands: A 60m superyacht called Project SkyFall has begun construction. Dutch boatbuilders Heesen is delighted to announce that construction of Project SkyFall officially began on October 1 at the shipyard in Oss. The owner’s representative laid a 450 BC Greek coin on the keel to commemorate the start of the build of this unique yacht, which will be tailored in every detail to suit the owner’s lifestyle. As a discerning yachtsman with a passion for speed, Skyfall’s owner has long been aware of Heesen’s high-performance heritage, with pioneering fast-yacht projects such as Octopussy making the Dutch shipyard the natural port of call for this ambitious project. It will be the shipyard’s most powerful yacht to date. Using waterjet propulsion on a sportsfishing-oriented superyacht truly resonates with the company DNA. Dutch designer Frank Laupman of Omega Architects penned the striking profile of this 60-metre motor yacht. An aggressive paint scheme exudes power and speed. SkyFall will harness 22,000 hp from four MTU 20V 4000 engines, driving four Kongsberg S90 waterjets.

Extremely rare British World War One tank helmet sells for £6,000 at auction

***EXCLUSIVE*** An extremely rare British World War One tank helmet which was so unpopular many crews refused to wear it has sold for Ł6,000 after being discovered in a charity shop. The protective headpiece issued in the summer of 1916 had a fatal design flaw as its flimsiness allowed splinters to penetrate the leather body. It also closely resembled its German equivalent, sparking incidents of friendly fire when they could not be told apart by British snipers. As a result, the decision was made from the higher-ups to scrap the helmet for a steel alternative, to the relief of the men in the field.

Cat returns home after eight years missing

Swansea, Wales, United Kingdom: A cat has been reunited with his family after EIGHT YEARS - all thanks to a Mo-mentous microchip! Black cat Mo is back with the Harris family in the Birchgrove area of Swansea, after being rescued by the RSPCA in the Llansamlet area of the city. Mo had been well looked after, but sadly his most recent owner had passed away - and the cats were temporarily being fed by a kind-hearted neighbour before the RSPCA was contacted to help. Animal rescue officer (ARO) Paula Milton arrived to collect the cats - and was later stunned to discover that one was microchipped to a different property; from where he had gone missing way back in 2012. RSPCA ARO Milton said: ''It's fantastic to have reunited Mo with his family some eight years on. We all need some good news at the moment - and this incredible story is a reminder about the amazing power of microchipping. ''A tiny microchip can make a huge difference. Mo is a great example of how pets can be returned home years and years later - all thanks to identifying an animal in this way.

Photographer captures this year's wildebeest migratory river crossing

Masai Mara, Kenya: British wildlife photographer Paul Goldstein captured the scene in the Masai Mara, which he says is ready for business, but lacking foreign tourists vital for local economies. The Exodus Travels guide explains: „The sight of over 20,000 wildebeest or gnus thundering over the Mara river would normally attract hundreds of tourists, their hard-earned currency vital for both wildlife and the thousands of people depending on it. This magnificent spectacle was witnessed by only five Landcruisers. 'Wildlife needs the policing eyes of tourists and their hard currency. I am so pleased for those who believed and came having the fabled plains almost to themselves, but we need more of them. It will be a battle, but that morning it was good gnus for once. The crossings of the Mara river are only a small part of the annual migration but certainly the most dramatic. I have only seen them returning back into the Masai Mara this late once before. It was almost as if they were missing their usual audience, an audience denied them by dubious quarantine and mystifying FCDO advice.”

ID bracelet of the 1st black pilot to serve with the Royal Flying Corps during WW1 discovered

***EXCLUSIVE*** Sergeant William Robinson Clarke was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1895 and trained as a mechanic. At the outset of the Great War he paid for his own travel across to Britain to fight the Germans. He enlisted with the RFC in July 1915 and initially was assigned as a mechanic and driver for the Observation Balloon Company. In December 1916, he began pilot training, gaining his wings the following April. Sgt Clarke was posted to No 4 Squadron at Abeele on the Western Front but his flying career was shortlived as his RE 8 aircraft was attacked by five German scouts during a reconnaissance operation over Ypres on July 28, 1917. He was shot in the spine but miraculously almost brought the plane back to base before falling unconscious, with his observer taking over the controls. Sgt Clarke's aluminium disc, stamped 'SGT W R CLARKE RFC', has emerged for sale at C & T Auctions, of Kenardington, Kent, with an estimate of £150.
