Personal letter from R. Wedd to his wife with a detailed account of a trip to the new dam at Makwar, travelling by train via Barakat and staying with Prowde who was in charge of building work at the dam. He describes the "luxurious" accommodation provided for visitors, a visit to the new cement factory, the ice factory, flour mill and various workshops, as well as the foundations for the dam. Other activities included talks with Prowde over the site for the new town, a visit to Jabal Sagadi where limestone was quarried and the settlement of Egyptian convicts who were working on the dam. The second half of the letter (from SAD.475/2/10v) covers the journey back to Khartoum by train, accompanied for part of the way by two grandsons of the Mahdi who were going to Khartoum to see off Sayyid `Abd al-Rahman al-Mahdi to England, and celebrations for the signing of the peace. Attached is a note that the letter was found amongst Geoffrey Barter's papers

Flag of the White Flag League, seized during the first Khartoum demonstration on 23 June 1924. The flag is made from a pillowcase of the Mill Hill Fathers and the material is stamped ‘B Nathan and Co Manchester’. This refers to the company of Bernhard Nathan, a German Jewish cloth merchant who settled in Bradford, Yorkshire in the 1860s and was still active in public life in 1914. By depicting the course of the Nile, the maker of the flag was signalling a core belief of the White Flag League in the ‘Unity of the Nile Valley’. Cotton with other materials
