Hullo Forum - would any kind reader have any information or knowledge about the 1915 riots in Ceylon which occured, I'm told, around the Kandy area. Apparently planters had a part in putting down the riots. Does anyone have more information on this than can be found on the net eg newspaper reports, or even personal accounts of that time? I understand that some awful things happened. I am just interested for historical reasons, and as my ancestors were there at the time.

Thank you, Joan Cross
