Good overall condition. * The Link was a pro German organisation set up to promote Anglo-German friendship. The organisation was established in July of 1937. It generally operated as a cultural organisation, although its journal, the Anglo-German Review reflected the pro-Nazi views of Admiral Sir Barry Domvile, and particularly in London it attracted a number of anti-semites and pro-Nazis. The organisation was investigated by Maxwell Knight, head of counter-subversion in MI5 and future role model for James Bond's boss M. The organisation closed shortly after the start of World War II in 1939. According to the book “The Man Who Was M: The Life of Charles Henry Maxwell Knight” by Anthony Masters, The Link was allegedly resurrected in 1940 by Ian Fleming, then working in the Department of Naval Intelligence, in order to successfully lure Rudolf Hess to Britain in May 1941.

Formal Oil Painting of Victoria Cross Winner and Inventor of the famous British Military Officers Equipment General Sir Samuel James Browne VC GCB KCSI, the painting is an English schools example from the painting that was commissioned for the Navy and Army Illustrated magazine of 1897. Shows General Sir Samuel Browne in full army generals dress uniform with bicorn hat by his side and generals pattern dress sword. He is wearing in the painting his full entitlement of awards including the Victoria Cross. The painting is unsigned. Housed in its original Victorian period plaster gilt decorated frame. Some chips to the frame and light crazing to the canvas which is typical of large oil paintings of this period. Measures 52 inches x 61 inches approx. ** Born in Barrackpore, India, Browne joined the 46th Bengal Native Infantry as a subaltern, participating in action at Ramnuggar, Sadoolapore, Chillianwalla and Gujarat. In 1849 he was made a lieutenant and tasked with raising a cavalry force, to be designated the 2nd Punjab Irregular Cavalry and later incorporated into the regular force. He would command this unit for the next five years. Later (1904) the unit would be re-designated as the 22nd Sam Browne's Cavalry (Frontier Force) in his honour. During the Indian Mutiny Browne led the 2nd Punjab in several engagements, and was decorated for action during the Bozdar Expedition in 1857, being promoted to captain. He was awarded the Victoria Cross for actions on 31 August 1858 at Seerporah, Rohilkhand, Uttar Pradesh, India. His citation reads, “For having at Seerporah, in an engagement with the Rebel Forces under Khan Allie Khan, on the 31st of August, 1858, whilst advancing upon the Enemy's position, at day break, pushed on with one orderly Sowar upon a nine-pounder gun that was commanding one of the approaches to the enemy's position, and attacked the gunners, thereby preventing them from re-loading, and firing upon the Infantry, who were advancing to the attack. In doing this, a personal conflict ensued, in which Captain, now Lieutenant -Colonel, Samuel James Browne, Commandant of the 2nd Punjab Cavalry, received a severe sword-cut wound on the left knee, and shortly afterwards another sword-cut wound, which severed the left arm at the shoulder, not, however, before Lieutenant-Colonel Browne had succeeded in cutting down one of his assailants. The gun was prevented from being re-loaded, and was eventually captured by the Infantry, and the gunner slain”. In 1878, as commander of the Peshawar Field Force during the Second Afghan War Browne brought 16,000 troops and 48 guns to the Khyber Pass, capturing the key fortress of Ali Masjid, which commanded its entry, and afterward proceeding through the pass and capturing Jalalabad. Browne was made a Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath for this action. Browne was promoted to general in 1878, and awarded the Order of the Bath's Grand Cross in 1891. He retired from the army in 1898, and died at the age of 76 on 14th March 1901. ** Shortly after the action in which he was awarded the Victoria Cross, he came up with the idea for the later known Sam Browne belt. He was having difficulty with wearing his officers sword. Officers who knew Sam Browne in India also started to wear the newly designed accoutrements. It did not come into full service until after he retired from the army.
