Morning All


I am currently researching the role of the Yeomanry cavalry in the war and am searching for photos of some of the Brigade and Divisional commanders whose commands were either solely, or contained, Yeomanry units. I have tried the usual sources - National Portrait Gallery, Imperial War Museum, National Army Museum, British Newspaper Archive, Australian War Memorial, for those who served in Egypt, but wondered if anyone had come across photos of any of the following in their own research, possibly through local research, schools or regimental, which they wouldn't mind sharing;


  • Brigadier General Bertram Percy Portal (7th Cavalry Brigade)
  • Brigadier General Charles Edensor Heathcote (231st Brigade)
  • Brigadier General D'Arcy Legard (9th Cavalry Brigade)
  • Brigadier General Ewing Paterson (6th Cavalry Brigade)
  • Brigadier General Stuart Rodger Kirby (9th Cavalry Brigade)
  • Brigadier General the Hon. Lesley James Probyn Butler (94th (Yeomanry) Brigade
  • Brigadier General Edgar Askin Wiggin (1st South Midland, 1st (1st South Midland), & 5th Mounted Brigades)
  • Brigadier General Edmund Arthur Herbert (4th Dismounted Brigade)
  • Brigadier General Archibald Stirling (Highland Mounted & 2nd Dismounted Brigades)
  • Brigadier General Charles Levinge Gregory (8th Mounted & 11th Cavalry Brigade)
  • Brigadier General Cyril Rodney Harbord (15th (Imperial Service) Brigade)
  • Brigadier General Frederick Fitz Hugh Lance (3rd (Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire) Mounted Brigade)
  • Brigadier General Howard Clifton Brown (South Eastern Mounted Brigade)
  • Brigadier General Julian Dallas Tyndale Tyndale-Biscoe (5th (Yeomanry) Mounted Brigade)
  • Brigadier General Percy Desmond FitzGerald (5th & 22nd Mounted Brigade)
  • Brigadier General Philip James Vandeleur Kelly (5th Mounted & 13th Cavalry Brigade)
  • Brigadier General Thomas Morton Stanhope Pitt (6th Mounted Brigade)
  • Brigadier General Claude Stuart Rome (8th Mounted Brigade)
  • Major General John Edward Robert Campbell (31st Division)
  • Major General William Western (Deputy Adjutant General EEF)
  • Major General Alexander Wallace (Western Frontier Force EEF)
  • Major General Alister Grant Dallas  (Western Frontier Force EEF)
