He served in the First Anglo-Chinese War (1839–1841), in India from 1843 to 1855 where he was deputy adjutant-general at Madras, and was Commander of the British Forces in Australia from 1856 to 1861. He was promoted to Lieutenant-General on 31 May 1865, and to full general eight years later. He was Commander of the British Forces in New Zealand from 1860 to 1861, and was on the Executive Council. He commanded during the First Taranaki War, but as he realised the doubtful validity of the Waitara Purchase (the main cause of the war), he disagreed with Governor Gore Browne, and his military action was ridiculed by the local settlers. He was created K.C.B. for his services in New Zealand by the British Government. He returned to Australia as Commander of the British Forces in Victoria, and in 1862 was appointed Colonel of the 37th (North Hampshire) Regiment of Foot, which he held until he retired in 1877.

Australia Postal Stationery


APS1) 2d KGV violet star embossed cover commercially used to London UK. Rare and  Probably Unique Vic cds. ACSC EP12. The Postal Stationery Catalogue page 196 states 'the whole printing was cancelled-to-order with a Melbourne cds numbered 23 and dated 3 July 1916. The quantity required for UPU distribution was 378.' And it also points out that 'a single printing of 390 envelopes was delivered into stock on 29 June 1916 for purposes of distribution to UPU members.' So that leaves 12 envelopes unaccounted. This has to be one of those 12 covers. So, this is the only known postal use of this envelope. Did an office person just grab one from stock as it covered the postal rate of 1.5d to the UK ( plus late fee cost?) This is not CTO! Cancelled with Spencer St. Melbourne Late Fee cds of July 6 1916, 3 days later than the cto stock. The catalogue value for a CTO used is $300. A Printed to Private Order version of this envelope does exist - see ACSC Postal Stationery Catalogue page 268.  Used price is $500. Supplied with normal for comparison. Price for this rarity $1650

CB582) GB 1992 £10 Banknote & Proof Coin Boxed set with Certificate of Authenticity. 1992 Deluxe 10p Ten Pence Silver Proof 2 Coin set, and Special Edition £10 Ten Pound Banknote Set, Boxed. In 1992, the Royal Mint, in conjunction with the Bank Of England, released a very special Limited Issue £10 Ten Pound Banknote, and a 10p Ten Pence Silver Proof 2 Coin Set to commemorate the introduction of the new, smaller 10p Coin into circulation, and the newly designed £10 Ten Pound Banknote. This note is one of the first printed, as outlined on the Bank Of England Certificate, and has the distinctive "AO1" serial prefix number to prove just that. This version of the "Tenner" is really scarce and the next year 1993 have an additional denomination symbol £10 on each side of the note, so this design only lasted a year or so. This new note depicted of course Charles Dickens and interestingly a CRICKET MATCH - making this a great buy for cricket fans of which there are endless millions out there! From the "Pickwick Papers" famous novel of 1836 we have depicted here the first cricket match between All Muggleton and Dingley Dell that Mr. Pickwick attended with his colleagues. Hard satin lined, velour inset Deep Blue Archive box with brass hinges, and fastener. SCARCE … due to high initial cost in 1992 money, 25 years back. Only 1000 ever made and it is believed they did not sell out so even less than that are in existence. UK retail is £200 = close to $400, our price just $210
