The Conservators of the British Museum

012_544

There are many who believe that the purpose of the British Museum is to collect, catalogue and exhibit items of historical, artistic or cultural interest for the delectation and education of the great British public. Few realise its far more important function. As the British Empire expanded its soldiers, diplomats, traders and missionaries began to come across extraordinary artefacts, many of which were quite dangerous, especially in the wrong hands. So the British Government set up the British Museum with the singular purpose of recovering these artefacts and putting them where they could do no further harm.

The Conservators are a new company that can be fund in the Bonus Materials section of the blog.

      • Apparently it is the redoubtable Sgt Borrage’s paternal uncle. He brought Borrage up when his parents were killed at Cawnpore during the Indian Mutiny. It is Uncle Jack who set Sgt Borrage on the path to become a soldier. Sgt Borrage often visits his Uncle when off duty.
