The cover story in this Sunday's print edition celebrates Queen Victoria’s legacy in India. It set us thinking about other unexpected traces of Britishness abroad, from police uniforms and phone boxes in Gibraltar or Bermuda to cricket pitches in Corfu and India, monuments around the world, churches, relics of military history and the “Man U fan” found everywhere from the Maldives to Marrakech. If you have seen a fascinating example of this on your travels, why not share your story? The reader who sends in the best entry wins a £500 voucher.
