Commonwealth in Focus Slides

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3011GGG
Scope and Contents Collection of 35mm colour slides of countries of the Commonwealth. When the 'Commonwealth in Focus' exhibition was being prepared it was felt that the strong emphasis on the historical aspect, and the fact that the only section on the contemporary Commonwealth dealt with broad issues and organisations rather than individual countries, made some additional material on contemporary developments desirable. Accordingly it was decided to have a continuous slide projection of contemporary...

Letters of Hugh Drummond Pearson

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/RCMS 356
Scope and Contents Following Hugh Pearson’s death, the principal recipients of his letters, his mother Mrs Jean Pearson and his youngest sister Ursula Pearson, prepared them for publication along with extracts from his diaries. Copies were sent to London literary agents in 1928 and again in 1930, but plans to publish the memoirs as a book with the title ‘A sapper’s letters to his mother’ were never realised. It appears that this manuscript is a copy of the projected book, which was to be divided into three...
