"Thomas Arthur Cooke (1841–1912) was a British General whose career spanned the 19th and 20th centuries. He was gazetted into the 5th Regiment of Foot in 1862 before transferring to the 17th Lancers in 1866. From here he rose steadily and was mentioned in dispatches during the Anglo Zulu War. He assumed command of the regiment in 1886 and subsequently served in India (where he was awarded the Kaisar-i-hind medal for public service as President of the Plague Committee. In time this led to investiture into the Royal Victorian Order and promotion to the rank of Major General. He was buried at Kensal Cemetery in a ceremony attended by many of his former comrades."
