If you are looking for the archetypal park then Norwich’s Eaton Park is just about perfect.
One of the first pets I was allowed to care for, with the help of my parents, was a rabbit. It was acquired for me because the care was less involved than that of a cat or dog. My rabbit happily lived on some pellets and the odd carrot or bit of fruit and maybe a bit of hay. He was in quite a small cage with no run attached. It goes without saying that he was protected from the elements and predators, but other than that and letting him out to run around the garden with me weekly, he got very little in the way of environmental enrichment. I might also add that he was a large white rabbit traditionally used for “production” rather than the pet trade and had very little health problems because of it.

With the first centenary of the First World War rapidly approaching, the interest in collecting militaria has never been stronger, and so it should be. Millions of people across the world still feel a connection with the Great War for Civilisation. They knew the people whose lives were changed by it. They remain moved by the enduring works of art that were created as a response to it. They live with its unresolved political legacies. The First World War created a common sense of history that, decades later, still links people from many disparate nations.
