Delhi Durbar 1911 The Brilliant Proclamation Scene, Matania Featured Print

Delhi Durbar 1911 The Brilliant Proclamation Scene, Matania

Proclamation by the native herald during the Delhi Durbar of 1911 as recorded in person by the artist Fortunino Matania on 12 December 1911. The Delhi herald was General Peyton in a tabard bearing the Royal Standard front and back together with the assistant herald, Malik Umar Hayat Khan, a Punjab magnate of martial bearing. Twelve British and twelve Indian trumpeters, all on white horses, followed the heralds, blowing a stirring fanfare. The heralds then turned on horseback to face the crowd to read the proclamation, one in English, one in Urdu. Behind on the huge, ornate dais sit King George V and Queen Mary. Matania bore witness to the event, dressing in ceremonial uniform in order to merge in and get as close to action as possible. Date: 1911
