Hi
Unfortunately I was unable to attend the recent event at the National Army Museum. I've read that the day was well attended, 200 plus, but most of the audience were mainly in their 60's. Where are the younger generation? Or am I being unrealistic? Just a thought.
Thanks

They'll be couched up in their darkened rooms, fighting battles with their mates across the street, on their X Boxes.
(With the exception of db14, of course)

Hello. I think the big worry on this issue is that our schools and education system have taught our children almost NOTHING about the British Empire in their History lessons. There seems to have been a total blackout on this part of our history. Most young people seem to have no idea that it even existed! I read a while ago that this was going to be addressed but have seen nothing further on the subject. Best wishes to Sam and DB14!

Commandergood,

this is very true, there is little option or flexibility in what I have been taught in history throughout my school life. I have been taught about the Romans, Egyptians, Tudors and a lot about the world wars but only touched on the empire through the study of slavery. Now I have a keen interest in military history in all different generations and periods through time however it is especially the 1800's and in particular the Anglo Zulu War which fascinates me. Clearly this isnt (along with the British Empire) taught in schools to my knowledge. There is a total blackout as you say in this type of history and is part of the reason why I have chosen not to take the subject in my ecucation but to have it more as a hobby/interest.

“It is surprising to find how little real knowledge of history is possessed by the average Englishman, or even by the average educated Englishman.” Second: “We need to return to an old-fashioned method which had governed the teaching of history for generations, namely 'dates, conventional divisions and an insistence upon mechanical accuracy.

CTSG - 100 % agree . Not going to happen though i'm afraid . Geography has gone the same way , when i was at school i could name the capital city of every country ( or almost!) .

In my opinion, the British were the best colonisers in history. The good done in the British Empire far outweighed the bad and the British should celebrate the Empire, not revile it, which seems to be fashionable amongst certain elements in society today.

I agree with all the previous posts . I dont even think they teach Geography in schools out here !. I remember being taught Egyptian History in the early secondary school years but the WW's were never covered or any Aust History for that matter .
We used to ' Bag ' the yanks once because they had and still have no idea where any place other than their 52 states are .
I remember being in Eng in 82 and talking to an American with my Kiwi Girl at the time and he asked her what part of Aust was NZ from !!!!. :lol: :lol: . I dont think I need to say any more on the matter !. Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes . No disrespect meant to any
' Yanks ' who may read this . Shocked .
cheers 90th. Salute
