In fact we were many times in our early history and of course we did revolt often but not always with success!

Yes I agree the one that stands out is the struggle beween Suetonius Paulinus and the Iceni, were superior tactics won over a superior force.

These things look very different depending on view point. Was it the "Philippine insurection" or the "Philippine wart for independence"? All peoples want to be "free." Even when "free" is under a repressive, corrupt government of their own people, rather than an efficient honest government of foreigners.

Unhappy Re: The Indian Mutiny

Reading through this thread,I can see many erudite comments about the Mutiny's origins.At one end of the scale the Raj unquestionably did a lot of good ;but the ordinary Indian was treated abyssmally.
The Mutiny heralded the beginning of the end; but it took a while, two world wars and ninety years.

 Designed by the great Ernst Heinkel, the diminutive D.1 was an essential stop-gap that provided the Austro-Hungarian pilots with a front line fighter until they were able to re-equip with Albatros scouts in the Summer of 1917. This little aircraft performed well and was generally held in high regard by its pilots, although it did have some shortcomings, namely that forward vision was extremely limited and the Schwarzloses gun was completely concealed in the overwing pod that made it inaccessible in the air. Most unusual of all was its interplane strut arrangement, designed to reduce drag, which gave it the nicknames Starstrutter or Spider. These examples are shown passing above the German cruiser Derfflinger. 

Brandenburg D.1 by Ivan Berryman. (B)
Half Price! - £50.00

 Kentucky - born Steve Cauthen was just 12 years old when his father Tex finally agreed to help the single-minded young man realise a burning ambition to become a jockey provided he didnt let success make him big-headed.  No parental proviso was ever more faithfully fulfilled.  In the year of his seventeenth birthday the kid rode 487 winners of 6 million dollars, including the U.S. Triple Crown on Affirmed.  He went on to captivate British hearts two years later.  By 1984 he was champion. But better was to come. No wonder the fairytale ingredients of 1985 have fired the imagination and talent of Peter Deighan to such compelling effect.
