NAAFI break with Grant Richards and Jason Thompson (UK Parachuting) - Overnight success takes about 10 years!

NAAFI Break

The  NAAFI BREAK PODCAST has reached 1500 downloads since it started. It has been a catalyst for some great connections and conversations so far. Why?Transition actually means more than leaving the service  - for some it alludes to a period of mourning, stepping away from a ingrained vocabulary  and relationships. At it’s best, this served as an all embracing culture that made service personnel secure , valued and gave them a purpose.  The transition the process  has to be understood and learned -it is more than finding a new job!  There are recurring themes, at times our guests are scarily frank and there have been sensitive discussions with veterans, who have experienced the darker side of ‘transitioning’. There are those who have experienced overwhelming hurt and disappointment dealing with remnants of culturalisation, that will hit a chord with many.We explore and discover how Veterans achieve personal growth, find a new purpose . This is often translated into support to other veterans, which we celebrate. Success in transition is not judged merely by the size of the salary, it is about fulfillment and purpose.The subject matter visits both ends of the spectrum - those who the military support and nurture, who go on to achieve some semblance of normality and can look back on their time with a smile, but also those who have have had to negotiate, (eventually successful) the barriers which are on the path. It is not uncommon to find that, you are no longer a big shot and no one understands or cares what you did or what you were in the Service, it can be sobering, for some a source of anger and frustration - this can be a call to action for those considering leaving, to prepare and soften the blow!Today we smash the myth around Inter Service rivalry and talk to former RAF PTI Grant Richards and Army Parachute Regiment Jason Thompson, who have forged a successful business in partnership after leaving their Service career behind. Please share to anyone with a Armed Forces connection or to anyone interested in understanding more about the skills and experience that Service leavers have to offer.You can find the NAAFI Break podcast on all the usual channels.

Jason Thompson, "Wonderful Things: A History of Egyptology" (AU of Cairo, 2018)

New Books in History

When asked what he saw after reverently peering into the freshly opened tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun, Egyptologist Howard Carter could only find the words the say “Wonderful Things.” These words have become legend in Egyptology; whether they were actually spoken by Carter or were ascribed to him after the events took place in order to embellish the moment is moot; the discovery and opening of King Tut’s tomb is notorious within and without Egyptology. However, as Jason Thompson’s recent trilogy shows, the history of Egyptology is full of such “Wonderful Things.”Wonderful Things: A History of Egyptology is a 3-volume history of the study of ancient Egypt from ancient times to the present. Beginning with how the ancient Egyptians reconciled their own past through colonialism and two world wars, Wonderful Things is encyclopedic in its biography of many of the field’s practitioners from around the world. In its comprehensiveness, this series is an accomplishment and a fantastic first step for anyone interested in the history of Egyptology. Yet, it never sacrifices depth for breadth, often weaving chronological developments in the field with deeply empathetic narratives.Thompson wrote this series with a critical eye towards many of the dubious practices of past Egyptologists—indeed not all archaeologists played nice with one another nor excavated according to standards that would be acceptable today. But Wonderful Things is written from a place of both attentiveness to the problematics of the past and with sincere appreciation for the study of ancient Egypt. It is that appreciation, that enthusiasm, which has kept Egypt in the imagination of people around the world for millennia, now more so than ever before.Samuel Pfister is the collections manager at the Badè Museum in California's East Bay.
