Most people have heard of Britain’s involvement in the Falklands War and the Gulf War but what many people do not realise is that we have been fighting small wars to defend our shrinking empire since the end of World War Two.

To quote the introduction of the website, “from the insect ridden jungles of Malaya to the frozen hills of Korea, in the back streets of Aden and Cyprus, from the African bush of Kenya to the rain soaked hills of the Falkland Islands, young National Servicemen and regular British soldiers have been defending the British empire and her allies for the last 58 years. This is their story.”

This website is a recommended read for those who want to learn from eyewitnesses what happened in Cyprus at the end of British rule, during the period 1955-59. There are nearly 100 accounts for you to read HERE
