“One of the most precious public possessions of the empire” [BERY]
At the end of July 2022, the Baker Street Irregulars held a conference in upstate titled "Sherlock Holmes and the British Empire."
That itself isn't news (although we did promote the original date of the event), but what is news is the breadth and depth of presentations that were given there. Half of our intrepid reporting team attended the event and captured commentary from some of the esteemed presenters to give a flavor of the event to IHOSE listeners who were unable to attend.
The Canonical Couplet quiz awaits if you can make it through the episode; we have a lovely prize for you: a souvenir package from the British Empire conference if you correctly guess the story we're referring to and we choose your name.
