Just for you CTSG.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
"Lord Chelmsford is most famous for having lost the battle of Isandlwana where the British Army was wiped out by the Zulus. When news of this disaster reached England, he was ordered to stand down and be replaced by Lord Wolesley. But the battle of Ulundi occurred before Wolesley arrived, and Chelmsford's reputation was restored, but not his command.
He had four sons, the eldest of whom became Viceroy of India. The photo shows him in the scarlet uniform of a General. He has a red sash on his right shoulder as a holder of the GCB. The badge on his chest is the star of the Royal Victorian Order. His medals include the British, Turkish and Sardinian Crimea medal as well as the Turkish Order of the Medjidie (5th Class).
