 Special Operations Executive - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Special Operations Executive (SOE), often called "the Baker Street Irregulars" after Sherlock Holmes's fictional group of spies, was a World War II organisation initiated by Winston Churchill and Hugh Dalton in July 1940 as a mechanism for conducting warfare by means other than direct military engagement.
Originally designated as 'Section D' of MI6, the mission of the SOE was to encourage and facilitate espionage and sabotage behind enemy lines and to serve as a focal point for the formation of a vestigial resistance movement in Britain itself (the Auxiliary Units) in the possible event of an Axis invasion.
Through cooperation with the Special Operations Executive and the British intelligence service, a group of Jewish volunteers from Palestine were sent on missions to several countries in Nazi-occupied Europe from 1943 to 1945.

 How to Train in Archery   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
It is easily seen why this is true, for if the right elbow were lower than the line of the arrow, the muscles would be on a strain and the loosing of the string irregular and unsteady.
When the arrow is thus fully drawn up it should at once be loosed, and this is the most delicate and difficult operation of archery, and almost as hard to describe as to learn.
If the string be not round, the wrapping imperfectly done, the nock fitting too tightly or too loosely on the string, the finger gloves too loose, the leather too hard, or the string awry in either nock of the bow, the loosing will be poor, and the results unreliable.
