THE BRITISH EMPIRE AT WAR

At the outbreak of the Great War the British Empire covered more than one-fifth of the land mass of the entire world—nearly 12 million square miles and representing 425 million people. When war was declared people from the Dominions and Colonies felt that the fight was as much theirs as the ‘Mother Country’. No matter how great or small, the participation was relative, in terms of population size. However, everyone made a sacrifice and contributed towards thewar effort with either men, money or natural resources.[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.6.5″ _module_preset=”default” text_font=”Georgia||||||||” text_text_color=”#2c4e6f” text_font_size=”17px” text_line_height=”1.6em” header_2_font=”Georgia|600|||||||” header_2_text_color=”#2c4e6f” header_2_font_size=”28px” header_2_letter_spacing=”1px” header_2_line_height=”1.2em” text_orientation=”justified”]

WWI: EMPIRE UNTOLD

On behalf of Penstroke Publishing I was pleased curate a photographic exhibition, ‘WW1: Empire Untold’, highlighting theoften overlooked social history, politics, and contribution of ‘people of colour’ in WW1, especially those from the former colonies of ‘Empire’: British, French and German.

Featuring Revd. Thomas Jackson of the Working Lads’ Institute, Whitechapel, with members of the British West Indies Regiment—many of whom, along with other demobbed soldiers, found themselves virtually destitute on the streets of London and elsewhere, while they awaited passage back to their respective countries following the end of war.

Panels also include Norman Manley, a National Hero of Jamaica and statesman; the British West Indies Regiment; and other colonial troops from across the globe.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row column_structure=”2_3,1_3″ custom_padding_last_edited=”on|phone” _builder_version=”4.6.5″ custom_margin_tablet=”” custom_margin_phone=”-20px||||false|false” custom_margin_last_edited=”on|phone” custom_padding_tablet=”” custom_padding_phone=”0px||0px||true|false” locked=”off”][et_pb_column type=”2_3″ _builder_version=”4.4.4″][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_3″ _builder_version=”4.4.4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.6.5″ text_font=”Damion||||||||” text_text_color=”#2c4e6f” text_font_size=”30px” text_letter_spacing=”1px” header_2_font=”Georgia||||||||” header_2_text_color=”#2c4e6f” header_2_font_size=”27px” header_2_line_height=”1.8em”]Lurane Grant
