Went to Antigua 3 years ago, and went to Nelsons Dockyard, where there is a little museum. It had a piece of Wedgewood, which I stood admiring, as I come from Stoke. An American guy sidled up to me..."Yeah...well you guys pinched the idea of proper china from the French didn't ya!!". Me....."Well, Josiah Wedgwood perfected that 'proper china' didn't he?". American chap looks at me, very puzzled..."Who?" he says... Mmmmnnnn.........I do hope that they haven't lost it all there, it is such a lovely place, and I hope all the people are safe and able to rebuild.
