Operation Legacy

Operation Legacy

There are a lot of crimes that the British Empire committed against the indigenous population of their colonies, but one that isn’t a piece of common knowledge is Operation Legacy. As the empire was receding and decolonization was in full swing, the Home Office knew full well of the crimes that the empire had committed. They, therefore, undertook a huge operation to destroy incriminating documents, rather than have it fall into the hands of their ex-colonies.
