Event description

Description

In 1868, Queen Victoria’s government mounted an extraordinary mission to rescue a small clutch of European hostages in the Abyssinian Highlands. They built a Red Sea port, then a railway, and finally brought in 44 Indian elephants and 26,000 local people to carry their heavy guns. A hundred and fifty years later, John followed in their footsteps in a bid to compare this world then and now.
