How is Queen Victoria connected to st john ambulance?
Queen Victoria was the longest reigning British monarch and the figurehead of a vast empire. She oversaw vast changes in British society and gave her name to an age . Victoria was born in London on 24 May 1819, the only child of Edward, Duke of Kent, and Victoria Maria Louisa of Saxe-Coburg. She su…cceeded her uncle, William IV, in 1837, at the age of 18, and her reign dominated the rest of the century. In 1840 she married her first cousin, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg Gotha. For the next 20 years they lived in close harmony and had a family of nine children, many of whom eventually married into the European monarchy.. On her accession, Victoria adopted the Whig prime minister Lord Melbourne as her political mentor. In 1840, his influence was replaced by that of Prince Albert. The German prince never really won the favour of the British public, and only after 17 years was he given official recognition, with the title of Prince Consort. However, Victoria relied heavily on Albert and it was during his lifetime that she was most active as a ruler. Britain was evolving into a constitutional monarchy in which the monarch had few powers and was expected to remain above party politics, although Victoria did sometimes express her views very forcefully in private.. Victoria never fully recovered from Albert's death in 1861 and she remained in mourning for the rest of her life. Her subsequent withdrawal from public life made her unpopular, but during the late 1870s and 1880s she gradually returned to public view and, with increasingly pro-imperial sentiment, she was restored to favour with the British public. After the Indian Mutiny in 1857, the government of India was transferred from the East India Company to the Crown and in 1877, Victoria became Empress of India. Her empire also included Canada, Australia, India, New Zealand, and large parts of Africa. During this period, Britain was largely uninvolved in European affairs, apart from involvement in the Crimean War (1853 - 1856).. In 1887, Victoria's Golden Jubilee and, 10 years later, her Diamond Jubilee were celebrated with great enthusiasm. Having witnessed a revolution in British government, huge industrial expansion and the growth of a worldwide empire, Victoria died on 22 January 1901 at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight.. (MORE)
Do commisssioned officers from the the UK's armed forces salute officers from other volunteer organisations eg St John Ambulance?
There is a distinction that needs to be made by use of the word "volunteer" in military terms as supposed to civilian, which is that in civilian life the word tends to mean un paid, whilst in a military context it refers to reserve forces (who are paid). Territorial Army battalions, for example, are… suffixed by the word to distinguish then from their regular army collegues.. If, by use of the volunteer, the distinction is being made between a conscript and a willing recruit, then the answer is no, an officer would not salute a member of a civilian organisation, however a regular army officer would be required to salute a senior ranking TA officer.. I believe they should... as I am a St John Cadet my self (aged 13) I believe that it is just polite. As we give up are free time to help the public and provide first aid for communitys and everyone who is in need of first aid. (MORE)

In my opinion she was quite cruel when she brought the rule that children had to work and children was BOUGHT to work in those times and it was allowed however she also did come up with the rule that children could only work what they could actualli be able to do. Victorians also came up the rule th…at all children had to go to school, and queen Victoria's reign brought improvements to the education of children, especially to the poor children. (MORE)
Not exactly. There have been several changes to the political structure of the UK through history, with consequent changes to the official title of the monarch. Queen Victoria was Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.
No. The St. John Ambulance brigade is a common name used by a number of affiliated organisations worldwide who provide medical first aid and ambulance services, mostly on a voluntary basis. The first St. John Ambulance was set up in England in 1877. However, Dr. (later Sir) John Lumsden established …St. John Ambulance in Ireland in 1903 with volunteers he had given first aid training to whilst working as Chief Medical Officer at Guinness brewery in Dublin. Check the wikipedia entries for both John Lumsden and the St. John Ambulance Brigade of Ireland, also the Earlscliffe website for more information. (MORE)
St John Ambulance as an ambulance association is reletively modern. The history of St John goes back over 900 years ago. In Jerusalem, there was a major lack of health care. Because of this, the hospitallers of st john set up health care which currently stands today as an opthalmic hospital. These …hospitallers then went around with the crusaders and provided their services to the holy lands that were set up by the crusaders. The crusades then moved to Malta and Rhodes which meant that the hospitallers were needed in those places to help the sick and injured pilgrims and crusaders. In 1306, the crusaders set up a headquarters and a hospital for the hospitallers to work in. Because of this relation with Malta, the logo of st john is the 8 pointed Malta cross. The order spread across all christian lands including England. However, the order was banned by Henry the eighth. St John was reinstated as there was a lack of medical care and transport. It was used heavilly in all of the wars to provide front line medical care to soldiers. They worked closely with the british red cross. As the work of St John became more developed, the Order of St John was re named as St John Ambulance that we see today. That's the history in a nutshell. More information can be found on the St John Ambulance website. (MORE)

As with any organisation or company, publicity is always welcomed. In many countries - in fact, in most countries - St John Ambulance is not funded by the government. It must rely on public donations and patient part-charges to deliver their service. Having more publicity would certainly improve t…he public's awareness of the work St John does in the community.

Princess Victoria recives news that she became Queen from Lord Conyngham and the Archbishop of Canterbury.
No, she was a very nice fair queen She was Geraman and when her husband died she didn't make many public appearancees. the people loved her though :-)
She accepted the role in life that she was born into, like most people in those days, from the top to the bottom of society. She could have refused the throne if she had really wanted to - she had a male cousin the same age, who would have been just as acceptable to the British elite - but that woul…d have been highly unusual behaviour. Only a handful of people have ever refused or abdicated a European throne, and in most cases it was either because they were of a different religion than their subjects (e.g. Queen Christina of Sweden) or because they were too old (e.g. the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V).

First you have to ask your officer in command when he is proposing to hold a first aid training course. The course will be two days long (for the youth badge/ the red badge) then at the end of the seccond day you will have three exams, they consist of, CPR, recovery position and 'drsabcd' and the fi…nal once will be a scenario that one of the officers will make up. If you pass all three exams you become a qualified first aider. You will have to wait about three months to receive your well earned badge abd certificate. Cdt Winsor. (MORE)

Yes, they can be found all over Germany. They are known as Die Malteser there.
10 years old to be in the cadets, however i am a cadet and we have a 9 year old
My view is extremely biased, but from personal experience, they are not too bad. But if you want a first aid course that gives you the basics you need to help someone on the street, their courses do not cater, as far as I know. The British Red Cross have, this year, introduced a new course called E…veryday First Aid - these one-hour courses give you all the practical skills you need to save a life, without all the in-depth details that you really don't need to know about to help someone who is bleeding. You don't need to know the different types of bandages you can use to help their bleed, all you need to know is to put pressure on the wound and lift it up above their head. So if you want the in-depth stuff, their courses are good, but ours are just as good! :) If you want practical skills - find a red cross centre near you, ask them about everyday first aid (or look on the website) and get yourself on a course to learn how to save a life!
