In the days of Empire, thousands of British men and women spent their lives in India. The men found active employment in the Army, the police, commerce, the railways, or industry. The vast majority of these one-time inhabitants of India have left little evidence of their own careers and of the lives of the women, children, and families who shared their experience of life under the raj. This book records the history of one such family. Members of the Mein family served in India over the space of 150 years, and unlike so many others, left behind a fascinating legacy of photographs and documents chronicling their military service, their family life and the social environment of British India.
