5 Associational memory This chapter assesses the associational activity and the mnemonic practices of mutineers, as well as how these changed over time. Any event, not least one as significant for the participants as the mutinies of 1919, possesses an afterlife that unfolds in successive phases.1 Initially, the unofficial knowledge of the Black Sea Mutiny spread, inspiring collective action amongst the armed forces and in France’s port cities. This phase of collective action lasted until the autumn of 1919. Between then and 1923, the mutiny remained a matter of

2 Elite associations: from local to transnational May the Society long continue its useful course and may it ever be worthy of the great country ‒ England ‒ of which we are all so justly proud. (John L. Sanford, History of the St George’s Society of Baltimore, 1929, p. 16) While arguing for the ethnicity of English associations we also recognize wider and more practical aspects of their work. For instance, the earliest type of these associations, the St George’s societies, served a range of functions: civic, financial, social, cultural and emotional. They were

As the sources in Section VII make clear, the diversity and economic hierarchy of the medieval town created a social environment in which there could be no natural community. These very conditions, however, go far to explain the deliberate creation, by townspeople themselves, of hundreds of voluntary associations. More diverse, flexible and indeed voluntary than the professional

-metropolitan headquarters of the Royal Institute of British Architects reads like a list of the major cities of ‘Greater Britain’. 26 Election to membership of organisations such as the British Medical Association and the Royal Society was open to individuals resident outside the United Kingdom, and although at the latter a distinction was drawn between ‘Foreign’ and ‘British’ fellows, the

I just want to say this is very odd indeed. (Sebald in Schwartz 2007: 165) This process means dismembering logical plot structures, building up scenes, not by textual reference, but by reference to associations triggered by them, juggling with CHANCE or junk, ridiculously trivial matters which are embarrassingly shameful, devoid of any meaning or consequence . . .

6 Ramsay and his associations Intellectual formation Andrew Michael Ramsay was born in 1686 to an Episcopalian mother (Susanna) and a Presbyterian father (Andrew).1 His birthplace was Ayr in Scotland, but Ramsay’s parents fled due to the religious and political unrest of 1684 in which his father had become involved.2 Returning to Ayr as a child, Ramsay grew up in a modest background: his father was a baker.3 Despite this, Ramsay claimed descent from the Earls of Dalhousie on his father’s side and the Lairds of Dun on his mother’s, although no clear connection

Among non-governmental organisations whose major purpose was the reception of Indians in Britain, perhaps the most important were the Strangers’ Home for Asiatics, Africans, and South Sea Islanders, and the National Indian Association (NIA). The former provided temporary accommodation for sailors and destitutes respectively and is a focus of the

3 Associations, movements, governance and power Introduction Given the limits of mainstream debates rooted in paradigms derived from accounts of tripartite relations between employers, state and unions, it is clear that the question of the significance of the CVP in social partnership requires a further type of theoretical exploration. The Pillar is somewhat anomalous from the perspective of theoretical accounts of social partnership so far, even where attempts have been made to encompass it. Therefore, any addition to empirical research may require being

6 Labour, civic associations and the new democracy During the 1918 general election campaign the Labour Party published a leaflet in the form of a fictitious letter from a wife to her husband serving abroad in the army. He, and by extension the voter, were asked to remember the indignities that workers faced during the war and the important concessions which the labour movement had won for them. Attention was drawn to ‘the dreadful tales of soldiers’ wives who were threatened with ejection’ which circulated before the Labour-championed Rent Restrictions Act was

Alice Stennard Robinson, née Cornwell, challenged the authority of the male-only Kennel Club in canine affairs and helped develop a women’s alternative ( Figure 8.1 ). Her initiative was orchestrated through the Ladies Kennel Association (LKA), founded in 1894, which gave women a greater, though still subordinate, role in the British doggy world. Her influence came from her drive and wealth. Her brusque manner and unconventional personal life meant she attracted controversy. Scandal was never far away. Her
