Field Marshal Lord Roberts of Kandahar, British soldier, late 19th or early 20th century

Field Marshal Lord Roberts of Kandahar, British soldier, late 19th or early 20th century. Frederick Sleigh Roberts (1832-1914) was one of the foremost British military figures of Victorian times. Awarded the Victoria Cross in 1858 for his actions during the Indian Mutiny, Roberts is best known for his march to capture Kandahar during the Second Afghan War of 1878-1880. He was made Baron of Kandahar and Waterford in 1892 and promoted to Field Marshal in 1895. Roberts commanded the reinforcements sent to South Africa in 1900 after the setbacks of the early part of the Boer War. After his successful intervention in the South African campaign, he returned to England to become Commander-in-Chief of the British Army, a position which he held until 1904, when he retired from the army.

The Duke of Wellington, Irish-born British soldier and statesman, 19th century (1956). Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington (1769-1852) commanded the victorious British forces in the Peninsular War, for which he was promoted to Field Marshal and made a duke. In 1815 he inflicted the final defeat on Napoleon at Waterloo. Christened the Iron Duke, Wellington served as Prime Minister in 1828-1830, but his intransigent opposition to parliamentary reform led to him being compelled to resign. His death was marked by a grand funeral and the honour of a burial in St Paul's Cathedral alongside the other great British military hero of the Napoeonic Wars, Nelson. From the Waterloo Chamber, Windsor Castle.

Pierre Terrail de Bayard, French soldier of the 16th century, 1882-1884.Artist: Gerard

Pierre Terrail de Bayard, French soldier of the 16th century, 1882-1884. Famous for his skill as a commander and for his chivalry, Pierre Terrail, Seigneur de Bayard (1473-1524) distiguished himself fighting against the Holy Roman Empire in the Italian Wars. Amongst his exploits he was said to have held the bridge at Garigliano against 200 Spaniards in 1503. In 1513 he was captured by the English after they routed the French army at the Battle of the Spurs. Henry VIII was apparently so impressed with Bayard's gallantry that he released him without ransom, subject to his agreement not to take up arms again for six weeks. War broke out again between France and the Holy Roman Empire in 1515 and Bayard successfully held the fortress of Mezieres for long enough to save France from invasion. He later returned to the conflict in Italy, where he was mortally wounded by an arquebus ball at the Battle of the Sesia in 1524.
