Jan Morris: Farewell the Trumpets (Abridged)

An Introduction…

Farewell the Trumpets

There was calculation…

The day after the Khartoum memorial service…

The British also sent the French…

And if to the public at home…

It was too late, anyway…

On the face of it…

Spion Kop was one of the most…

It was the first of the propaganda wars…

Sea-captains of every nationality…

In 1905 the British decreed…

Many aspects of Victorianism…

Our second grandee…

For generations the British in India…

The first part of the plan…

The British slept that night…

In 1905: a Liberal Government…

Such, many times multiplied…

The Turkish possession called Mesopotamia…

Early the next afternoon…

But of the three imperial campaigns…

Fisher resigned…

The Gallipoli campaign lasted 259 days…

The British Empire had more than survived the war…

For though self-determination…

For another generation…

This was the inflammatory situation…

Two remarkable members…

When war came…

After the Easter Rising…

Before the war…

For it was to prove a febrile relationship…

Among those most deeply affected…

In the meantime…

Nobody then, nobody later…

On March 12, 1930…

Later in the year…

The most lavish exercise…

Since it seemed likely…

Still the Empire proceeded…

In hindsight one can see…

So the Dominions diverged…

On October 4, 1930…

The British were paying…

The greatest of all their works…

It did not come naturally…

There was an imperial folklore…

But in the last generation…

In Kenya was Lord Delamere…

In London was Frederick John Dealtry Lugard…

Alas for Ronald Storrs…

Several great women travellers…

Hard times had come for the British people…

At another extreme…

Hitler went to war…

Without her equivocal allies…

It so happened…

The Australians and New Zealanders…

Harold Macmillan, a future Prime Minister…

A more baleful view of the Empire…

On March 22, 1947…

The knot was worse than the Gordian…

Mountbatten hoped to leave behind a federal united India…

The Viceroy was not deterred…

They rationalised the Commonwealth…

But we must narrow our focus…

The Arabs were no less passionate in opposition…

Sometimes sceptically…

It was nearly over now…

Mauritius was another relic…

In the winter of 1967…

Of all the charges of Empire…

Churchill died, and it died with him…
