Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

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.

but the overall work is truly amazing.
