During the Wembley Exhibition, Dr. Saw Po Min sent two elephants with his Karen Mahout to increase the attractiveness of the Burmese exhibition.
The British Empire Exhibition was a colonial exhibition held at Wembley, Middlesex in 1924 and 1925. It was opened by King George V on St Georges Day, 23 April 1924. The British Empire contained 58 countries at that time, and only Gambia and Gibraltar did not take part. It cost Â£12 million and was the largest exhibition ever staged anywhere in the world - it attracted 27 million visitors.
