Four page article from the United Service Magazine of 1863 describing Corfu from a British officer's perspective just before the end of the British Protectorate. Although Zante was much smaller, and hence 'British Society' there was on a much smaller scale and more provincial in outlook, it gives an interesting, if jaundiced picture of life in the islands for ex-pats and visiting army and navy officers at about the time George William Muir and Lindesay Brine started attending parties thrown by the British Consul, Berkeley Wodehouse. It is to be hoped he laid on better suppers than Storks apparently did in Corfu!
