The British Departure on the Mauritius

Title

The British Departure on the Mauritius

Description

In 1933, an agreement was negotiated to increase the terms of the D’Arcy concession to 1994; however by 1951
said contract was annulled and the British were expelled from the Braim with riots which came to be known as
the Abadan Crisis. In October 1951 all the remaining British employees and their families gathered in Gymkhana Club and boarded the Mauritius and slowly headed up the river with the band playing “Colonel Bogey”.
