~GEORGIUS VI, DEI GRATIA BRIT. OMN. REX, FIDEI DEFENSOR ET INDIAE IMPERATOR~
Σαν σήμερα το 1936 ανέρχεται στον Βρεταννικό Θρόνο ο Γεώργιος Στ', διαδεχόμενος τον αδελφό του Εδουάρδο Η'. Με την σύζυγό του Βασίλισσα Ελισσάβετ υπήρξαν το τελευταίο  Αυτοκρατορικό ζεύγος των Ινδιών (μέχρι το 1947 οπότε και παραιτήθηκε του τίτλου του Αυτοκράτορα).
Η αίγλη του αυτοκρατορικού παρελθόντος νομίζω προκαλεί σε όλους αισθήματα θαυμασμού και σεβασμού για την μεγάλη θαλασσοκράτειρα Δύναμη του 20ού αιώνος, την Βρεταννική Αυτοκρατορία, τα έθνη τα οποία εξουσίαζε αποτελούν την σημερινή Βρεταννική Κοινοπολιτεία!
[Στην φωτογραφία που τράβηξα πριν λίγο καιρό εικονίζονται τα αγάλματα των Α.Α.Μ.Μ. του Βασιλέως Γεωργίου Στ' με ναυτική στολή και της Βασίλισσας Ελισσάβετ της Βασιλομήτορος με τους Θυρεούς τους στις βάσεις των αγαλμάτων, αρκετά κοντά στα Ανάκτορα του Μπάκιγχαμ].

Thanks to @pinkbits_ig for featuring my tweet - they are British and discuss imperial history. They chat about how little they know or were taught about the empire.

You guys had a lot to say about Priti Patel’s comment in my DMs! @ciarariordannews posted this on Twitter - did you get taught about Irish history at school? I learnt about it at history GCSE and English A level because we studied Brian Friel and Seamus Heaney. But what about everyone who doesn’t pick those subjects? 🤔 💭 🇮🇪 #Ireland #irishhistory #britishempire #historyeducation #instahistory

"🇨🇦 Canada's last aircraft carrier" - (Part 7 = The Bonaventure continues the ship's trials for aircraft in the Caribbean Sea, transports a RCN hydrofoil on the flight deck, and two McDonnell Banshee jet fighters from the ship are lost) •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - "🇨🇦 The (RCN) Naval Air Service" — A McDonnell F2H Banshee jet fighter being ready to be turned around and prepared for take off, on the flight deck of the (RCN) Majestic-class light fleet carrier HMCS Bonaventure (CVL-22). Caribbean Sea, 1957. — https://www.reddit.com/r/comments/5xvlr2/f2h_banshee_being_readied_for_take_off_on_the/ -------------------------------------------- The HMCS Bonaventure sailed for Canada on June 19th, 1957, and arrived at her home port, Halifax, Nova Scotia, on June 26th, 1957, carrying the experimental hydrofoil Bras d'Or (R-103) to Canada on her flight deck. In October 1957, the aircraft carrier began further trials with her air group composed of VF 870 (Banshee jet fighters), VS 881 (Grumman Trackers) and one Sikorsky HO4S helicopter in the Caribbean Sea that lasted until early 1958. This included cross-deck operations with the Royal Navy Centaur-class light fleet aircraft carrier HMS Bulwark (R08). On October 2nd, 1957, a RCN (Banshee jet fighter) flying from HMCS Bonaventure to the naval air base HMCS Shearwater was lost at sea. -------------------------------------------- The resulting search did not find the plane or the pilot. RCN Captain (William Landymore, July 31st, 1916 - November 27th, 2008) became the Bonaventure's senior officer on January 15th, 1958. On February 25th, 1958, a McDonnell F2H Banshee crashed into the sea after takeoff and the pilot was killed. On March 4th, 1958, a Banshee suffered another fatal crash, as the aircraft made a normal deck landing, an apparent brake failure caused the fighter to flip over the port side of the aircraft carrier, killing the pilot. — #The🇨🇦HMCSBonaventure

These men truly were worth a thousand of their enemies. It really was the sanctions that killed Rhodesia, not the enemy. They were abandoned and left for dead, but they did not go out without a hell of a fight.

On This Day in History December 11, 1931: The Statute of Westminster was the British’s law granting the former colonies of the Dominion of Canada, the Commonwealth of Australia, the Dominion of New Zealand, the Union of Sourth Africa, the Irish Free State and Newfoundland full legal freedom unless they chose to remain subordinate to Britain. The resolutions were enacted during the Imperial Conferences of 1926 and 1930. So what exactly did this statute accomplish?

According to the post Statute of Westminster from the Canada to the World and Society website: “The British giving full legal autonomy meant the Dominions had more freedom. Now the British could no longer have nullify laws of other Dominions, the Dominions could make their own extra-territorial laws, British laws no longer applied to all Dominions and Canada could make its own laws except those that directly amended the British North America Act. Under the Statute of each of the Dominions would have the right to choose which of the new resolutions it would accept and which would be rejected in favour of past regulations.” #StatuteofWestminster #BritishHistory #CanadianHistory #AustralianHistory #NewZealandHistory #IrishHistory #UnitedKingdom #BritishColonialHistory #ColonialHistory #ColonialIndependence #BritishEmpire #OnThisDayinHistory #ThisDayinHistory #HistoryToday #TodayinHistory #History #Historia #Histoire #HistorySisco

In Flanders fields the poppies blow  Between the crosses, row on row,  That mark our place; and in the sky  The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago  We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,  Loved and were loved, and now we lie  In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:  To you from failing hands we throw  The torch; be yours to hold it high.  If ye break faith with us who die  We shall not sleep, though poppies grow  In Flanders fields. 🥀

Got friends in high places?

What's the role of the academy in how history is written?
.
The study of colonial history in its earliest iteration was a blatantly imperialist project which told a narrative of high moral purpose. The Beit Chair in Colonial History at Oxford (the first in the subject) was endowed in 1905 by supporters of the Boer War, pro-imperialist agendas also endowed the Vere Harmsworth Chair of Naval History at Cambridge and the Rhodes Chair of Imperial History at Kings College London. Broadly, the men who held these chairs propagated ideas of the diffusion of liberties, the blessings of colonialism and the teleological progress of other states towards the British ideal.
.
Here's an extract from a pamphlet the Beit Chair Egerton wrote in 1914, 'What happened was the peaceful occupation of apparently vacant lands, though afterwards, no doubt, trouble sometimes arose from the neighbourhood of aboriginal Indians.'
.
How should contemporary students and academics respond to these legacies? Should Chairs fall? How should we acknowledge (if at all) the political and intellectual histories latent in these posts?

Asserting victory, asserting defeat. I have a busy week of filming and it began at @histfestuk - which meant I had the chance to sit in on Professor Olivette Otele’s talk. She’s a memory scholar! Which sounds like an awesome area of academia. She spoke about Memorialising Traumatic Histories and how collective memory is formed. She mentioned a term I’d never heard before - ‘entrepreneurs of memory.’ These could be people who make attempts to ‘remember’ past events into the national consciousness, perhaps because of state sponsored messages that have quelled these narratives or the destruction of records and witnesses etc...It made me think about collective memory of the British empire and what our collective memory is of it. The stats show that generally the UK think it was a good thing. How did our collective memory get formed to believe that in the first place? And does this insta account count as memorially entrepreneurial...?🤔 💭 #unitedkingdom #instahistory #britishempire #colonialism #collectivememory #olivetteotele

Visit the truly remarkable @britishmuseum where you will witness the vast scenery on display. From the historic antiques of ancient Egypt, to the scarce collections of the Dinosaur ages. The British museum is like none other. 
Britain was built on a conquest of assimilation. From the affiliation of the Roman empire, to building the largest empire that man had ever seen, by conquering 23% of the worlds total land. Although much controversy, this has led this magnificent Museum to deriving most of the worlds history, and becoming the emblem of the universes life span.

Gurkha regiments have many shared connections and history with Scottish regiments. Close ties have been forged between them during the period of British empire. 
Gurkhas fought alongside the Highlanders in North West Frontier, were the martial races of empire and have established the love for wearing tartan which goes as far as back home in the Himalaya.

. . ‘James Bond’s Foyer’ I build at least one round room in a project, each year. This 10’ diameter ‘foyer’ is from my exhibit at @idstoronto -All of it, including the curved bench, designed and crafted in-house. Flooring is enamelled maple. . . . #torontodesigner  #toronto  #the6  #thesix  #the6ix  #ottawa  #ottawadesigner  #designer  #maker  #bespoke  #bond  #007  #jamesbond  #interiorinspiration  #designinspiration  #round  #maker  #gentleman  #kingstonontario  #newyork  #london  #greatbritain  #uk  #canada  #britishempire  #thecrown  #interiordesigner

“...a date which will live in infamy.”
December 7, 1941...
Japan’s unprovoked attack on the
Eastern British Empire
was an attempt to seize the vital rubber, mineral, and other resources required for its military machine.
The simultaneous attack on Pearl Harbour effectively denied American support for British defence of the Eastern Empire.
Unwittingly, Japan had reunited the greatest alliance in history:
immediately Britain gave America instant access, and equal rights, to every British base, in every quarter of the globe, which in effect trebled the mobility of the American navy.
The fraternal association of the two Great Powers continues, to this hour.
.
Narrated from:
‘The Second World War’
-Winston S Churchill
