Lt-Col Sydney Lawford c1906

Sydney Lawford, who became Lieutenant-General Sir Sydney Lawford, was photographed here as captain and adjutant of the 7th Battalion at the Tower of London c1900. The photo was published in the Navy and Army Illustrated. By 1906 he was in command of the Regimental Depot at Hounslow. It would be safe to assume that the 7th Battalion became the depot battalion and that Sydney Lawford was by then Lieut-Colonel of the 7th Battalion.
