Ink signature on this 3x1 strip
Signature: "Ian Hamilton", 3¼x1 trimmed unevenly. Ian Standish Monteith Hamilton (1853-1947) was a British General who served with distinction in several of Britain's colonial wars: in India, Burma, Afghanistan, and both Boer Wars, knighted in 1902 for his success in the 2nd Boer War. However, he was assigned much blame for the disastrous Gallipoli campaign of World War I (1915) and removed from command, even though he had no part in planning the campaign and was allotted insufficient men and equipment for the attack. Ironically, as a military observer with the Japanese Army in the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905), he had seen first hand how modern weaponry would affect military campaigns, but his recommendations for new strategies and tactics were ignored. Hamilton also wrote poetry and a novel. In retirement, he worked for Anglo-German friendship, even after Hitler's rise to power. Typed fragments on verso (show-through). Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
