Clocking Off Late and Clockwork Watch: A Background Story


“Traders to the World: East India Company Event Announced


The East India Company is to promote its activities, and those of its trading partners around the world, at a show in London on November 13th.
The event will showcase the influence of company’s trade and power, tracing the changing relationships between Britain and Asia.

The East India Company transports key commodities to different locations and many people around the world. Its recent success in championing the sale of Hodgson’s Indian Pale Ale, and Clockwork Automata has made it one of the the world’s most successful companies.

Hosted by a special guest, the event will run for one evening in the Traders Room at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich.”


As seen in the Clockwork Watch London Gazette:

Tinku Ranbir In Despair At Being In London

When guests were invited to the Queen’s House for a Summer Fete in August, many didn’t realise they were going to get a firsthand insight into the personal, and what seems tragic, world of the Ranbir Family, who are current residents in the Royal House. The Ranbir’s arrived in the country several years ago, at the request of the Queen.

Chan Ranbir, a kinetic engineer at Calcutta University, and heralded as the man who put “Great back into Great Briain”, developed the heart that powers the latest craze of domestic labour being championed by industry and the government.

Tinku, wife of Chan, and mother of Janav, left her personal journal in public view. It was deemed to be part of the exhibition, and perused by members of the public.

The diary talks about being ‘wary of those around me”, and the level of politicking she is being subjected to.

Visitors to the house witnessed the rumoured ‘frosty atmosphere’ between Lady Frobisher-Pilbeam – the Queen’s Emissary to Science, and Tinku.

The House has declined to make a statement, but reiterated its position not to respond to rumour. A copy of a page from the journal was handed to the London Gazette by a member of the public.”

Will we get a deeper insight in these matters during the Clocking Off Late event on the 13th of November? Or will the cracks of personal intrigue close and shall we merely see a splendid evening of music from the Frolick, craftmanship from Lady Emilly Ladybird, science talks and more? Will perhaps the gin further a loosening up among those present?

Time Will Tell!
