My Father’s History

Opinion: The British Empire: A legacy of violence?

I was born in the British Empire, and though I have no official documents to prove it, I think it’s fair to say that my birth was marked by violence, as my father went on to rape my mother and kill him in a fit of rage.

At the same time, I’ll admit that my family’s history in many ways was quite different to the Empire that most people think it was.

There were few, if any, formal conscription duties for my father, and because he was a low-paid labourer he didn’t have to undergo much scrutiny before taking part in the war effort, either.

At the age of 13, she was sentenced to ten years hard labour for having been a prostitute. The judge called her a ‘disgrace to her race’ and she was sent to the infamous ‘Black Maria’, a place where prisoners were sent between the ages of 17 to 24, before being deported to the colonies.

She made a full recovery at the age of 21, and decided
