Humorous postcard - Workhouse Tramp gets the 'Order of the B
A humorous postcard showing a tramp in a workhouse being pushed towards a bath by a uniformed attendant. The 'Order of the Bath' refers to a British order of chivalry whose name derives from the medieval ceremony for creating a knight which involved bathing - a symbol of purification. The workhouse attendant's military style uniform suggests that the illustration may be American in origin. Date: Date unknown

General Sir Horace Smith-Dorrien
Portrait by John St. Helier Lander of General Sir Horace Smith-Dorrien (1858-1930). On the outbreak of World War I, he was given command of the II Corps of the British Expeditionary Force. Praised for his leadership skills during the Battle of Mons, his troops became the British Second Army in December 1914. During the Second Battle of Ypres, Smith-Dorrien clashed with Sir John French over tactics as he felt repeated attacks on the front line was creating unnecessary loss of life.
