THE TOURIST’S GUIDE TO LUCKNOW By One of the Beleaguered Garrison

Hilton was one of the La Martiniere College boys who participated in the defence of Lucknow, and the greater part of his guide relates to the events of the Mutiny. The Boys’ College is the only school in the world to have been awarded royal battle honours, for its role in the defence of Lucknow during 1857. This work usefully includes a “complete” Nominal list of the European members of the Lucknow garrison,beneficially women & children are also shown along with casualty status (killed, dead and wounded.) Medals to the boys of the La Martiniere School are prized for their uniqueness and scarcity. A good plan of the “Intrenched Position” at Lucknow completes this informative account.
