Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

"Henry Hallam Parr was born in 1847, the son of Thomas Clements Parr of Clifton, Gloucestershire. He was educated at Eton and went to Sandhurst, joining the regiment at the age of 18. He had a very active military career both in the British and Egyptian armies. From 1882 to 1888 he was involved in the reorganisation of the Egyptian Army, becoming Lord Grenfell's Adjutant-General. He was well placed to succeed Grenfell but his health broke down and Lord Kitchener stepped into his place. But during his time there he and the staff had made a very great improvement in the discipline and effectiveness of the Egyptian soldiers. As CO of the 13th Light Infantry he took the regiment to Gibraltar and India. The photo above shows him in the uniform of ADC to the Queen, a post he held from 1886 to 88. He had three sons who all died before Sir Henry's death in 1914.
