All,

The 1st June 2015 saw the 136 anniversary of the death of the Prince Imperial. At least one media source took note:

Thank you, Peter. A good piece. I note that Ian does not come across as a great exponent of British imperial expansion!

His book detailing the Prince Imperial's participation in the AZW, With His Face To The Foe, is excellent.
