PostSubject: British Empire - an Equivocation   Mon Jul 02, 2018 10:15 am

A short programme on BBC Radio 4 last week by Jan Morris who is now 91. Her trilogy ( which she wrote when she was James Morris) called Pax Brittanica was the first I ever read about the British Empire  - I could not put it down then and I believe it is still the very best on the subject. Well worth a listen.

As a life-long Empire Loyalist now hopelessly outnumbered and out of place, I enjoyed that. Thank you Steve.
