Arthur Frederick Richards, 1st Baron Milverton

Arthur Frederick Richards was transferred from Fiji to the governorship of Jamaica, where the incumbent, Sir Edward Denham, had died suddenly in 1938. The West Indies were then in a state of violent unrest (grave enough subsequently to warrant the appointment of a royal commission, headed by Lord Moyne), and Richards saw his task as that of restoring order to the island.
