CTSG,

Having made a search of forum, she not mentioned directly, however her husband and their children have been mentioned.

Sime,

India, indeed. In fact the lady in the photograph was born in what was then India.

To further the Indian connection she married her husband in the city of Karachi, in what is now the Sindh Province of Pakistan, what was then Sind, part of the Bombay Presidency.

Kenny,

Ron has already unsuccessfully tried Lady Frere.

I introduced that statue of a son of Breconshire to a delegation of the Zulu Royal House back in October.

I’m always surprised that it was raised by public subscription.  I wonder if the widows and orphans of Confederation Policy chipped in.

John

It’s taken me too long - obviously old age is dulling my brain - it is Adria whose husband died playing billiards in the building now the HQ of the Institute of Directors.

John,
I have a two volume set entitled ‘Soldiers of the Victorian Age’ by Charles Rathbone Low - I think he served in the Indian Navy. The books were published in 1880 just after AZW. His summary relating to LC I quote ‘A strict disciplinarian and total abstained, Lord Chelmsford personally has always been popular in the army, while his upright character and blameless life have acquired for him the respect and affection of his numerous friends’.
