Viscount Chelmsford, Viceroy of India 1916 – 1921, signed postcard.


Lord Chelmsford, Viceroy of India 1916-1921. Signed portrait postcard. A signed photographic postcard showing Frederic John Napier Thesiger, the 3rd Baron Chelmsford (later 1st Viscount Chelmsford) probably soon after he succeeded to his title in 1904. He wears court dress with sword but is not wearing the K.C.M.G. that he was awarded in 1906 so the photograph, which is probably taken in Queensland [signed in the negative Fegan Photo] where he was appointed Governor in 1905. He stands beside Lady Chelmsford [Frances] and the card is signed in ink by both F. Chelmsford & Chelmsford. The card is rather faded and has not been used.    jun20/2
