The overall styling was shared with the early s Ford Thunderbird.
This American styling cue was inspired by a styling study for the upcoming Ford Taunus in Germany that Ford designer Elwood Engel saw on a visit, he utilized its front end design in both Lincoln Continental. In Tony Brookes and a group of friends captured 15 International class G World records at Monza in Italy with a Corsair GT; the car was offered with the larger 60 bhp, single carburettor , 1. The range was revised in September , adopting new Ford Essex V4 engines, making it rough at idle and coarse on the road; this engine was available in cc form at first, but in , a larger 2.
One marketing tag line for the V4 models was "The Car That Is Seen But Not Heard", a real stretch of the ad man's puff, given the inherent characteristics of the engine; the other tag was "I've got a V in my bonnet".

An estate car by Abbott was added to the range on the eve of the Geneva Motor Show in March , in , the Corsair underwent the Executive treatment like its smaller Cortina sibling, resulting in the E model with dechromed flanks, which necessitated non-styled-in door handles, special wheel trims, reversing lights, a vinyl roof, upgraded cabin fittings. A five-seater convertible and a four-seater cabriolet conversion were available via Crayford Engineering.
Only 18 Cabriolets were built using technology from Karl Deutsche in Germany. Only 4 are known to survive; the Corsair's performance was good for a car of its type and period, with a top speed in its 2. The Corsair was replaced by the Mk 3 Cortina in , at which time the enlarged Cortina became Ford's mid-sized car, a new smaller model, the Escort, had filled in the size below. The new Ford Capri took on sporty aspirations of the company.
Conversely, of the convertibles built around 75 have survived. Between and , the Ford Corsair name was used by Ford Australia for a badge engineered version of the Nissan Pintara. Known during development as'Project Matilda', the Corsair was produced under a model-sharing scheme known as the Button Plan , it was offered as a four-door sedan and as a five-door liftback , in GL and Ghia trim levels with 2. The Corsair was intended to replace the Mazda based Ford Telstar , imported from Japan ; the two were sold side-by-side in the Australian Ford range, with the Telstar only available as the high-performance TX5 hatchback.

However, it proved less popular than the Telstar had been, losing sales during ; when Nissan closed its Australian plant in , the Corsair was discontinued and the imported Telstar once again became Ford's main offering in the medium size segment, until being replaced by the Mondeo in The P5 appeared in September , badged as the "3-litre", it was powered by a 2,cubic-centimetre engine. This straight-6 IOE engine used an overhead intake valve and side exhaust valve, an unusual arrangement inherited from the Rover P4.
In this form, output of brake horsepower was claimed. An automatic transmission, overdrive on the manual, Burman power steering were optional with overdrive becoming standard from May Stopping power came from a Girling brake system that employed inch drums all round, but this was a heavy car and by the time of the London Motor Show in October Girling front power discs brakes were fitted; the suspension was independent at the front using wishbones and torsion bars and at the rear had a live axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs. A Mark I-A line, introduced in September , featured a minor restyle with added front quarter windows, intended to "assist the dashboard ventilation".
Under the metal, the 1A featured modifications to the engine mountings and the automatic transmission and hydrosteer variable ratio power steering as an option. By , when production of the original Mark I series ended, 20, had been produced. An automatic version tested by The Motor magazine in had a top speed of A fuel consumption of Hydrosteer was standard on the optional on the saloon.
Externally it could be distinguished by the full-length trim strip along the body and Mark III badging. Now powered by the 3,cubic-centimetre Rover V8 engine used in the , the car was badged as the "3. The final letter in the "P5B" model name came from the engine's originator. Rover did not have the budget to develop a new engine, hence they chose to redevelop the lightweight aluminium engine available from Buick , they made it stronger, which added some weight but still maintained the engine's light and compact features.
The Borg Warner Type automatic transmission, hydrosteer variable ratio power steering and front Lucas fog lights were now standard. The exterior was unchanged, apart from bold'3. The P5B existed as both saloon body style until end of production. As testament to their suitability, the last batch of P5Bs to roll off the Rover line in June was purchased by the British government and placed in storage, to be released for government use as required: subsequently registered new looking P5s were therefore still familiar sights in Westminster for more than a decade after production had ended; when Margaret Thatcher entered Downing Street in after her election victory, she was driven in a model.
The Rover P5 is sturdy enough to be a popular choice for banger racing. A Rover P5 3-litre was. By and large, IRA units in Munster and most of Connacht were opposed to the Treaty, while those in favour predominated in the Midlands and Ulster ; the pro-Treaty volunteers formed the nucleus of the new National Army.
The reasons why volunteers chose pro- and anti-Treaty positions are complex.
One factor was an evaluation of the military situation. Another factor was the role of powerful personalities; the same was true for anti-Treaty leaders such as Liam Lynch in Cork. On the outbreak of civil war in June , the government of the Irish Free State issued directives to newspapers that its Army was to be called "The National Army", that its opponents were to be called "Irregulars" and were not to be associated with the IRA of —; this attitude hardened as the Civil War went on, after the killing of Michael Collins in an ambush in August Collins wrote to W.
Cosgrave on 25 July that those on the anti-Treaty side were "misguided, but all of them are sincere". However, the subsequent government attitude under Cosgrave was that the anti-Treaty side were rebels against the lawful government, were not entitled to recognition as legitimate combatants. O'Duffy claimed that the Kerry IRA's sole contribution in —21 was "the shooting of an unfortunate soldier on the day of the truce". In Kerry's case, this was far from true.
This was interrupted by the outbreak of civil war in the new Irish Free State. Many Northern IRA men had to flee the North in order to escape internment or worse at the hands of the Northern authorities. Over of them ended up in the National Army during the civil war. The IRA had been expanded hugely in , from 15, men before the truce with the British in July , to over 72, by November Veterans of the War of Independence derisively termed the new recruits "truceileers"; these were to divide in broadly the same ratio as the veterans.
At the beginning of the Civil War, the Free State had about 8, fighters pro-Treaty IRA volunteers; the anti-Treaty side could muster about 15, men but it could not arm them all. At the start of the war, they had just under 7, rifles, a few machine guns and a handful of armoured cars taken from British garrisons as they evacuated the country; the remainder of anti-Treaty IRA arms were other civilian weapons. Public support for the Treaty settlement and the new Irish Free State was reflected in the victory of the pro-Treaty sid.

It borders Lincolnshire to the northwest, Cambridgeshire to the west and southwest, Suffolk to the south, its northern and eastern boundaries are the North Sea and, to the north-west, The Wash. The county town is Norwich. With an area of 2, square miles and a population of ,, Norfolk is a rural county with a population density of per square mile. The area is not a national park, it has similar status to a national park, is protected by the Broads Authority.
Norfolk was settled in pre-Roman times, with camps along the higher land in the west, where flints could be quarried. The crushing of the second rebellion opened the county to the Romans. During the Roman era roads and ports were constructed throughout the county and farming was widespread. Situated on the east coast, Norfolk was vulnerable to invasions from Scandinavia and Northern Europe , forts were built to defend against the Angles and Saxons.
By the 5th century the Angles, after whom East Anglia and England itself are named, had established control of the region and became the "north folk" and the "south folk", hence, "Norfolk" and "Suffolk". Norfolk and several adjacent areas became the kingdom of East Anglia, which merged with Mercia and with Wessex ; the influence of the Early English settlers can be seen in the many place names ending in "-ton" and "-ham".
Endings such as "-by" and "-thorpe" are common, indicating Danish place names: in the 9th century the region again came under attack, this time from Danes who killed the king, Edmund the Martyr. In the centuries before the Norman Conquest the wetlands of the east of the county began to be converted to farmland, settlements grew in these areas.
Migration into East Anglia must have been high: by the time of the Domesday Book survey it was one of the most densely populated parts of the British Isles. During the high and late Middle Ages the county developed arable woollen industries. Norfolk's prosperity at that time is evident from the county's large number of medieval churches: out of an original total of over one thousand, have survived, more than in the whole of the rest of Great Britain ; the economy was in decline by the time of the Black Death , which reduced the population in By the 16th century Norwich had grown to become the second-largest city in England, but over one-third of its population died in the plague epidemic of , in the Great Plague again killed around one-third of the population.
During the English Civil War Norfolk was Parliamentarian ; the economy and agriculture of the region declined somewhat. During the Industrial Revolution Norfolk developed little industry except in Norwich, a late addition to the railway network. In the 20th century the county developed a role in aviation.
The first development in airfields came with the First World War. For the local army regiments the Royal Norfolk Regiment and the Norfolk Yeomanry please click on the links.
During the Second World War agriculture intensified, it has remained intensive since, with the establishment of large fields for growing cereals and oilseed rape. Norfolk's low-lying land and eroded cliffs, many of which are composed of chalk and clay, make it vulnerable to weathering by the sea; the most recent major erosion event occurred during the North Sea flood of The low-lying section of coast between Kelling and Lowestoft Ness in Suffolk is managed by the British Environment Agency to protect the Broads from sea flooding. Management policy for the North Norfolk coastline is described in the "North Norfolk Shoreline Management Plan" published in , but has yet to be accepted by local authorities; the Shoreline Management Plan states that the stretch of coast will be protected for at least another 50 years, but that in the face of sea level rise and post-glacial lowering of land levels in the South East, there is an urgent need for further research to inform future management decisions, including the possibility that the sea defences may have to be realigned to a more sustainable position.
Natural England have contributed some research into the impacts on the environment of various realignment options. The draft report of their research was leaked to the press, who created great anxiety by reporting that Natural England plan to abandon a large section of the Norfolk Broads and farmland to the sea to save the rest of the Norfolk coastline from the impact of climate change.

Newcastle is the most populous city in the North East, forms the core of the Tyneside conurbation , the eighth most populous urban area in the United Kingdom. Newcastle was part of the county of Northumberland until , when it became a county of itself, a status it retained until becoming part of Tyne and Wear in ; the regional nickname and dialect for people from Newcastle and the surrounding area is Geordie.
Newcastle houses Newcastle University , a member of the Russell Group , as well as Northumbria University ; the city developed around the Roman settlement Pons Aelius and was named after the castle built in by Robert Curthose , William the Conqueror's eldest son. The city grew as an important centre for the wool trade in the 14th century, became a major coal mining area. The port developed in the 16th century and, along with the shipyards lower down the River Tyne, was amongst the world's largest shipbuilding and ship-repairing centres.

Among its icons are Newcastle United football club and the Tyne Bridge. Since the city has hosted the Great North Run , a half marathon which attracts over 57, runners each year; the first recorded settlement in what is now Newcastle was Pons Aelius, a Roman fort and bridge across the River Tyne. It was given the family name of the Roman Emperor Hadrian , who founded it in the 2nd century AD; this rare honour suggests Hadrian may have visited the site and instituted the bridge on his tour of Britain. The population of Pons Aelius is estimated at 2, The course of the "Roman Wall" can be traced eastwards to the Segedunum Roman fort in Wallsend—the "wall's end"—and to the supply fort Arbeia in South Shields ; the extent of Hadrian's Wall was 73 miles.
After the Roman departure from Britain , completed in , Newcastle became part of the powerful Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Northumbria , was known throughout this period as Munucceaster. Conflicts with the Danes in left its settlements in ruin. After the conflicts with the Danes, following the rebellion against the Normans , Monkchester was all but destroyed by Odo of Bayeux ; because of its strategic position, Robert Curthose, son of William the Conqueror, erected a wooden castle there in the year The town was henceforth known as New Castle ; the wooden structure was replaced by a stone castle in The castle was rebuilt again in during the reign of Henry II.
Much of the keep which can be seen in the city today dates from this period. Throughout the Middle Ages , Newcastle was England's northern fortress.
