Duke Arthur of Connaught, Field Marshall

Categories: Royalty

Duke of Connaught and Strathearn. Third son of Queen Victoria. After WW1 if you wanted a statue or memorial unveiled Connaught was your man. Go to the Royal Artillery Monument to see him in action. And to the Masonic Temple in the Great Eastern Hotel in Liverpool Street to see a bust. The building is now used as a theatre so it is possible to see the bust without rolling up your trouser leg. Father of Patricia.
