The Re-cut Koh-i-noor Diamond, 1852

Engraving of the re-cut Koh-i-noor ('mountain of light') diamond, 1852. Previously owned by the Mogul emperors, the Persian Shahs and Ranjit Singh, the Lion of the Punjab, it was presented to Queen Victoria by the East India Company in 1850. The diamond was displayed at the Great Exhibition of 1851, where various experts felt it displayed insufficient fire. It was decided therefore to recut the stone. This was undertaken by Guillaume Coster, over 38 days, in 1852 to produce a round diamond of 108 carats (shown in the image). In 1937 the diamond was placed in a crown to be worn by Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother at the Coronation of King George VI. The crown and diamond now reside at the Tower of London.

Photograph: Ranghar of the Indian Army, Eastern Punjab

Photograph: Ranghar of the Indian Army, Eastern Punjab, 1943-44. 'Ranghar' was a term applied by Hindus to any Rajput who had, or whose ancestors had, converted to Islam. They were one of the 'Martial Races', certain Indian peoples thought by the British to possess a natural ability as soldiers. In reality the Martial Race theory was a clever British effort to divide the people of India for their own political ends. From a collection of photographs taken to illustrate the races recruited into the Indian Army and the geographical areas in which they originated. Date: 1943
