Field Marshal Lord Roberts of Kandahar, Pretoria and Waterford VC KG KP GCB OM GCSI GCIE, 1904 (c).

Oil on canvas after the portrait by John Singer Sargent, 1904, by Frank Markham Skipworth, 1917.

Frederick Sleigh Roberts was commissioned into the Bengal Artillery in 1851. His subsequent career was spent almost entirely as a Staff officer but he still saw a good deal of active service. Roberts won the Victoria Cross in the Indian Mutiny (1857-1859), but first came to public notice when he led his troops on the legendary 480 km march from Kabul to Kandahar, during the 2nd Afghan War (1878-1880). In 1885 he succeeded to the post of Commander-in-Chief, India, a position he led until 1893.
