the next few years the costly military garrisons were reduced, while bombers of the RAF maintained order to a kind along the desert and mountainous marches of the Middle Eastern empire. 7 Air policing may have given the RAF the independent peacetime role it needed in order to survive, but it did little to build the corporate identity of the new service. Many army and navy officers

This was a time of artificial stillness. During this period not a single state was annexed, as had earlier been the case, under the principle of the ‘doctrine of lapse’ (by which the British allowed themselves to take over an Indian state if there was no successor – or one considered acceptable to them – to a reigning dynasty). During the Paramountcy, the Indian princes for the first time formed a corporate body in 1921, the Chamber of Princes, which lobbied for self-preservation of the states, negotiated with the British for their collective future, and came close

1868, the society aimed to provide a meeting place for those ‘connected with the colonies’ or ‘taking an interest’ in colonial affairs. 11 To become a member was to self-identify as a sympathiser with the Empire, the Commonwealth, or both. People joined, suggests former RCS Secretary-General Stuart Mole, ‘almost like adding one of those plastic badges to your lapel as a strand of your beliefs or your identity’. 12 This chapter uses the society as a window on to a group of people who had not only been involved in the imperial project, but whose interest in the

diplomacy, friendly encounters also played an important role in the establishment and maintenance of institutional, national, transnational, and Commonwealth identities. Who the WI and Rotary chose to make friends with, and the terms in which they described these relationships, reveal how these organisations saw their members in relation to the wider world. Scholars have convincingly shown that in order to understand colonial relations we have to attend to the discourses and experiences of affect, intimacy, and emotion.

, hundreds of immigrant Nigerians succumbed to mental disorders while living outside of Nigeria. Many dozens were repatriated as a result, supposedly in their own best interests to optimise their recovery. Repatriation of those deemed mentally ill was, however, a complicated process involving a variety of medical, governmental and corporate authorities, not least of which was the shipping firm of Elder

Lights, camera and … ‘Ethical’ rule!

probably left the vast majority of non-Europeans unmoved. 44 However, a photograph album made in Surakarta in the 1920s suggests that this thesis may need to be revisited. The album is unusual not just because it provides rare insight into Javanese views of Dutch royal celebrations, but also because its maker(s) and intended audience were almost certainly Javanese youths. Further, the album documents a corporate identity rather than family life. Albums that recorded the activities of Indies companies and organisations

’. 4 At the time of writing, the company, although no longer a giant, continues to operate in Nigeria, and has, exceptionally, kept its head office in Liverpool. John Holt highlights this connection in its corporate communications through its logo ( Plate 10 ): the round shape is a manilla, ‘previously used in some parts of Nigeria as currency’, and the five-point star

advertising stopped using the image of black people to sell products. Corporate advertisers, however, with interests in the colonies, could not simply ignore the changing scene. The conflict was not simply between coloniser and colonised, but also between capitalism and communism. In projecting their involvement in the former colonies, the corporate advertisers presented themselves as catalysts of change. In

While representing Commonwealth and colonial nations, none of the companies mentioned the term ‘Empire’ in any of their advertisements. In some ways we can see these advertisements as representing a negotiated political change while maintaining economic

Atlantic. Further politicking was necessary before there could be a legal confrontation. 34 Perhaps anticipating this necessity, Randolph negotiated with Joseph Dudley a plan for New England government under which each colony would retain its corporate identity while being subjected to a royally appointed governor and a council selected by the king from the colonial magistracies. 35 Whether or not the Randolph – Dudley
