Sir: I totally agree with the Labour MP Bernie Grant about returning the Benin artefacts to their rightful owners ("The looting of Benin", 22 February).

I am writing to Mr Grant to organise compensation for the descendants of the brave and heroic people killed during the rape of Benin in 1897 - one of whom was my great-great-grandfather.
