Port Said, on board the Medina, 1911-11

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/QM 20/13

Scope and Contents

From the File:

Contains photographs ranging in size from 85 x 70 mm to 290 x 235 mm bound in a black leather album with 'Indian Tour 1911-1912' on the front cover. This records the visit to India for the Delhi Durbar of December 1911. Taken by various photographers, it appears to have been the personal record of the King or Queen, and covers the outward voyage from Portsmouth via Port Said, Suez, and Aden to Bombay, a detailed record of the Durbar and other events in Delhi, shooting in Nepal, the remaining Indian activities, and the return journey including stops at Port Sudan, Port Said, Malta and Gibraltar. Only two photographs, QM 20/22 and QM 20/186 have been captioned, apparently by King George.
