What Britain has lost

Here are a few links to a wonderful country pub in Tunstall, Suffolk. Note the decor. The pub has of course been redone and is now decorated in a style more fitting the modern Britain. So much has been lost.

This was Ron's favorite pub when we were there on temporary duty before he lived there. This room was called the gun room in a pub called the Green Man in the village of Tunstall near the base. All walls were covered with old and exotic fire arms, African spears, shields, and skins from safaris that the owner had been on in his youth.

In later years, when we were stationed at the base, we found that the pub had been sold and redecorated following the previous owner's death. Unfortunately, it has lost all its character and we never went back again
