Soldiers of the Queen (SOTQ): Issue 165

The latest copy of SOTQ (Soldiers of the Queen, the quarterly journal of the Victorian Military Society) was delivered early yesterday, and I was able to read through it yesterday afternoon and this morning.


The articles included in this issue are:
  • Field Marshal Sir George White, VC by David Nalson
  • The Other Baker Pasha: Major General Charles George Baker, VC by Frank Jastrzembski
  • VMS Seminar on the Second Anglo-Boer War 1899-1902, Saturday 29 April 2017 - 11.00am-5.00pm
  • Florence Nightingale before the Royal Commission: 'The very first requirement of a hospital should be that it should do the sick no harm' by David Snape
  • Diehards' Review of 2016 by Tim Rose
  • A Leicestershire Naval Officer: The Life and Early Death of Lieutenant Rudolph Edward Lisle March De Lisle RN, 1853-1885 by David Howell
  • The Crimean War Hero Who Never Saw the Crimea by Mike Boxall
  • Obituary: Lt. Col. M.L. Clewer (Trustee of the Victorian Military Society) 3 September 1931 - 26 October 2016 by Lt. Col. Donald 'Hobo' Hobson
  • Book Reviews
  • About the VMS
I particularly enjoyed the articles about General Charles Baker and Lieutenant De Lisle because of their connections to two of my Victorian heroes, Valentine Baker and Colonel Frederick Burnaby.

Yet another excellent issue of the magazine that anyone with an interest in Victorian and Edwardian military history should read.
