The following teaser is from an article published March 9, 2014 at the gulfnews.com website.
Shimla [Himachal Pradesh, India]: Clement Attlee’s grandson John was born in Shimla nearly nine decades ago. His great-granddaughter has just fished out her father’s birth certificate from the cavernous civic office of the “queen of the hills”.
Sally Camps, great-granddaughter of Clement Attlee, who served as Britain’s prime minister from 1945 to 1951, screamed excitedly as she traced her roots in this hill station. It was during Attlee’s tenure that India got its independence in 1947.
Simla, as it was then called, served as the summer capital of British India between 1864 and 1939.
Camps along with her husband Michael Camps was in this Himachal Pradesh capital last week to locate the birth records of her father John Keith Harwood, who was born here in 1926.
