What did the first official Burmese visitor to London go shopping for in 1872?

Dear friend

This is just one of the things we'll be hearing about this Saturday on our sponsored Burma tour of London. Our wonderful team of supporters will be walking 15 miles across London and along the route we'll be hearing about interesting snippets of Burmese history in London.
We are walking to raise money for our campaign to end human rights abuses in Burma.

Please make a donation to support our fundraising walk here.

If you prefer to donate using Paypal, you can here.

Juliet Eardley, Joe Bushby, Nwae Nwae Aye, Louie Tham and Viktorija Kos are part of our team of supporters on the walk!
As you read this, there are over 100,000 Rohingya forced to live in squalid camps, driven from their homes and facing desperate conditions. They are unable to leave, unable to work, unable to send their children to school or even to walk on the same roads as other residents in Arakan State.
Please sponsor us here so that we can work to stop these abuses.
It's not just the Rohingya who need our help.  The political prisoners still behind bars need our help. Like Lahpai Gam, an ethnic Kachin farmer illegally detained since 2012 and serving a 21-year prison sentence.
And in the Shan and Kachin States, the villagers that the Burmese army continues to attack need our help.
We have seen many welcome changes, but there is still so much to do.  We must make sure no-one is left behind.
Please support us to continue the struggle for democracy and human rights in Burma.
Please sponsor us here.

Or you can donate using Paypal here.

Without your support, our campaign would end.
Thank you

PS. The answer to the question of what the first official Burmese visitor to London went shopping for is - socks!
