Lord Roberts as a young man

Lord Roberts in 1851
As the caption says, this picture shows Earl Roberts as a lieutenant in the Bengal Artillery - and looking remarkably like an Indian. He would have been 19 or 20 at the time, as he was born (in Kanpur) in 1832 and took up his commission in December 1851. The picture is from "The Life and Deeds of Earl Roberts", by J. Maclaren Cobban. See also Delhi in the 1850s.
