The term 'Anglo-Indian (Raj)' is used to identify the white colonial population of India rather than the 'mixed-race' community to whom the term is now most usually applied. Crane describes how links between Australia and India were already established by the early nineteenth century. He then goes on to compare two pieces of 'mutiny literature' - the short story 'Mrs James Greene
', from Ethel Anderson's Indian Tales
(1948), and Sir Gilbert Leigh or Pages from the History of an Eventful Life
a little known novel by New Zealand writer W. L. Rees.
