He was also a highly controversial public figure, whose death at the Battle of Abu Klea in 1885 led to public mourning and caused a military scandal that lasts to this day.

Christopher Joll is a former officer in The Life Guards and the Regimental Historian of the Household Cavalry. He is also a serial author of novels and histories, a guest speaker for several cruise lines, a regular contributor at literary festivals, and an audio and video podcaster for the Household Cavalry Museum. He is currently working on a history of the important collection of historical relics and art, including Napoleon’s underwear and campaign carriage that were lost in the fire at Madame Tussaud’s in 1925.
