Josslyn and Idina Hay at Slains, their farm in Kenya

The Hon. Josslyn and Lady Idina Hay pictured at Slains, their 2000 acre farm in Gilgil, Kenya. Pictured from left are: The Hon. Josslyn Hay, Major Roberts, Major J. Grant, Lady Idina Hay, Mrs C. Birkbeck, the Princess Philippe de Bourbon, and the Hon. Mrs Grant. The farmhouse can be seen in the background. Five-times married Idina would gain notoriety as part of the Happy Valley Set when she moved to Kenya in 1924 with her third husband, Josslyn Hay, Earl of Errol. With her serial marriages and reputation for debauched decadence, she inspired the character of The Bolter in Nancy Mitford's novels, The Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate, Evelyn Waugh's Vile Bodies and the character Iris Storm in The Green Hat by Michael Arlen. Date: 1926

Soldiers of the 72nd (Duke of Albany?s Own Highlanders) Reg

Photograph: Soldiers of the 72nd (Duke of Albany?s Own Highlanders) Regiment, 1879. From an album of 60 photographs by John Burke, 1878-1880. Associated with Maj Gen Frederick Sleigh Roberts, 2nd Afghan War (1878-1880). Soldiers of the 72nd (Duke of Albany?s Own Highlanders) Regiment in Afghanistan exhibit the range of signalling devices available before the advent of either the field telephone or radio. Flags enabled the relaying of messages by semaphore. The Mance heliograph, a small mirror mounted on a tripod, worked by reflecting sunlight in order to flash messages in Morse code: on 22 April 1880, news of the Battle of Ahmed Khel was relayed by heliograph to another British column 50 miles away. At night, when there was no sunlight, the shuttered Aldis lamp was used to flash signals instead. Finally, the signallers? telescope enabled them to see long distance messages more easily. Date: 1879
