These vivid stories and recollections give an evocative and unique glimpse into the lost days of the Empire across India, Africa and the territories fringing the South China Sea.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A lovely and compelling account of what India meant to the British between 1900 and 1947 ... One of the Best' The Times 'Both a guide and an entertaining companion ... humour, drama and touches of regret fill its pages' Mail on Sunday 'One of the most enjoyable books I have read ... by turns informative, funny and deeply touching. It is an authentic record of the survivors of British India ... a book which takes on where Kipling left off' Antonia Fraser
