A scarce Indian mutiny broadside The Residency Lucknow and its Relief. Lucknow Imperial Printing Press [1857]
One leaf broadside, 35 x 21 cm. Framed.

A broadsheet poem by W.T.H.F., celebrating the bravery of the defenders and relievers of Lucknow. Now think ye gallant sons of Mars - in khaki or in red Of those who at their country's call, their life-blood nobly shed Beneath the scorching, burning rays of India's torrid sun They step by step advanced and held positions they had won! Those gallant Sons of Britain's soil, did nobly bear their share In fighting for old England's rights - theirs was to do and dare!
