“At the end of the eighties my father and mother, my brother and sisters and myself, all newly arrived from Dublin, were settled in Bedford Park in a red-brick house with several wood mantlepieces copied from marble mantlepieces by the brothers Adam, a balcony, and a little garden shadowed by a great horse-chestnut tree. Years before we had lived there, when the crooked, ostentatiously picturesque streets, with great trees casting great shadows, had been anew enthusiasm: the Pre-Raphaelite movement at last affecting life.”
A short story by William Butler Yeats, an Irish poet and dramatist, and one of the foremost figures of 20th century literature.

THE STORY OF THE GUIDES - THE EXPLOITS OF THE SOLDIERS OF THE FAMOUS INDIAN ARMY REGIMENT FROM THE NORTHWEST FRONTIER 1847 - 1900 Most regiments can lay claim to renown, but some transcend this to achieve fame. The Guides - a corps. of both infantry and cavalry is one of the exalted few. Founded by Harry Lumsden (himself a figure of fame in British Indian history) its Khaki clad troops fought with distinction in a series of wars from the Sikh War to the Indian Mutiny and the Afghan war of 1878-80. They were present at the relief of Chitral and in the Malakand Expedition, but it is their consummate skill in the campaigns and skirmishes with the tribes of the 'burning border' that brought them to their own. This is the story of the Victorian campaigns of the Guides - from 1847 to 1900.
