LORD ROYSTON TAKES UP THE CHALLENGE!

A NEW SQUADRON FOR THE EAST INDIA COMPANY!

YET MORE 'JEWELS IN THE CROWN'

A spokesman for the Rayleigh Reform Club issued the following communique:

"In response to the challenge issued to complete a construction project within the 80 day timespan I am instructed to inform all persons present and their associates that Lord Royston of Rayleigh has kindly agreed to place the construction and design facility of the Rayleigh Factorium at the disposal of the Honorable East India Company of Leadenhall Street, London for the avowed intention of constructing a new squadron of merchant vessels suitable for use in time of strife and unrest by the addition of defensive apparatus. This new squadron will be sent, post haste, to the Indian Sub Continent where they will be deployed on the Calcutta station. Full details will be made available in due course as to the composition and types of the vessels in question as well as full technical specifications.

Lord Royston has long been a champion of scientific and technological endeavour and this gesture, so nobly and unstintingly given, further adds gravitas to his avowed intention of ensuring that this great Empire remains at the forefront of such undertakings".

His Lordship hopes to be at the controls of the first vessel to be completed as he has a long planned visit to the company offices in Bengal for the Tiger shooting season in June of this year.

Three cheers for Lord Royston of Rayleigh and for Fair India, truly the Jewel in the Crown!! HUZZAH!! HUZZAH!! HUZZAH!!
