      (Looking at the inscription which lists European and North American allies by each country’s name but just says “Great Britain and her glorious colonies”): We are not here? Why not? We have sacrificed hundreds of people and we’re not even on a mug? I’m not happy with this mug! ….It hasn’t been appreciated how much they contributed… just brought in and used them. It wasn’t in anybody’s mind, just the big countries.

      I have one of these mugs and mine also says India and South Africa so there must be various types around.
