I am trying, as explained yesterday, to put together as much
of a collection of
Ceylon Independence Day
memorabilia here on this blog.
1967 was my last year in Ceylon.
I left on August 27, 1967
and since then have not spent much time at all in
I became a British citizen on
September 27, 1982
having lived in Britain since
I do not remember this 1967 Independence Day Parade.
That bothers me. I know it is old age.
C’est la vie.
