Hello. I'm confused about how to renew my long-expired British passport as I've read two conflicting accounts on various sites. I live in Ottawa and would like to visit my hometown Nottingham sometime later this year. - Born in Notts in 1955, registered as a Canadian citizen born abroad, since my father was in the RCAF on a 3-year assignment to England and was soon to return to Canada. -Obtained British passport at the High Commission in Ottawa in 1987, by applying in person. (#C 898502 D) -Already had a Can. passport, but wanted one from UK as a matter of pride in birthplace. -Do I make an appointment at the High Commission to pick up an application, or is it only possible online with the British Govt in London? Thank you for your consideration. Neil Kelly
