The Empire to Commonwealth Project

Life Magazine

On searching the internet for something else to add to the site, I came across original drawings of the heraldic arms and badges used in Colonial times.  These images are quite old as they actually show the old colonial arms of Hong Kong (and they changed in 1957!).  Life Magazine have given consent for these images to appear on any research work, but copyright is not given for any commercial work, where you would have to apply direct to them should you wish to.
