In the guise of educator, many late-Victorian and Edwardian imperial missionaries and some administrators from public school and ancient university, and sometimes from more humble institutions, clung tenaciously to team games and their moral qualities and with sincerity and self-confidence took the means of acquiring those precious instrumental commodities to, among other places, the lush tropical rain forests of Africa, the verdant islands of the Pacific, the parched plains of India and the windswept prairies of Canada. Whatever the aims of other missionaries from the diverse sects and organizations which attempted to spread the Christian message, their first purpose was to create a universal Tom Brown: loyal, brave, truthful, a gentleman and, if at all possible, a Christian. My concern is with this relatively small band of committed moralists and with their narrow and decent ambition. One of the most energetic of these proselytizers was Cecil Earle Tyndale-Biscoe at his Church Missionary Society school in Srinagar, Kashmir.
