When the Sun Never Sets : A Family's Life in the British Empire, Hardback Book

When the Sun Never Sets : A Family's Life in the British Empire Hardback


Charles Griffin joined the Colonial Service as one of its first recruits and embarked on a journey to Africa with his young wife Aileen.

They had begun a lifetime of travels, which would be shared and extended by their children, Alice and John, and their grandchildren.

When the Sun Never Set explores three generations in a remarkable family's history.

Alice Boase and Mary Hannah give a lively account of the Griffins' journeys across the globe from Gibraltar to Uganda and Palestine to the West Indies.

They capture the atmosphere of the colonial territories they passed through and give valuable insights into the lives of the families who served there.
