I have to apologies as there is no new Year of the Nationalists, as I said there would be today. A serious issue has come up regarding my research into the closing months of 1956. Particularly, large scale demonstrations against the Anglo-French intervention in Egypt led to British intervention in Bahrain and the arrests of multiple members of the National Union Committee. While I have notes about everything after these arrests, I can’t find any contemporary documents relating to these important November events – without which I’m afraid I can’t do the story justice. So it is that I’m delaying the post by a week while I rush back to the archives and try to find this segment of the story that’s remained hidden from me.
