One purpose of this site is to act as a link between Brits throughout the world. Many of us living outside Britain feel a tremendous pride and attachment to Britain, and many of us are monarchists. One such is Jim Frecklington who lives in Sydney. He has mortgaged his house and spent years of his life constructing a new royal state coach which will be his slightly belated birthday gift to The Queen.
Incorporated into this superb coach are materials from a Lancaster Bomber (one of the Dambusters), a musketball from Waterloo, and wood from four cathedrals, HMS Victory and the Mayflower. Full details in the Telegraph.
