    General Francis Adams Ellis Loch was commissioned into the Indian Cavalry in April 1844, first saw service at the siege of Mooltan, when he was mentioned in despatches for his service with the 1st Light Cavalry (London Gazette 11 March 1849). As it transpired, he would win similar approbation in each of hs subsequent campaigns. Hart's summarises his services in the Indian Mutiny thus:
    'At the mutiny of the Bengal troops at Nusseerabad, siege and capture of Awah(wounded) and Kotah, recapture of Chandaree, action at Kotah-ke-Serai,capture of Gwalior, siege of Powerie, pursuit of rebels under Maun Sing, and action of Koondrye. Despatches. London Gazette 18 April 1859. Brevet of Major'.
    In September 1866, Loch was apponted to the Bombay Staff Corps, but in the following year he returned to the campaign trail with the 3rd Bombay Cavalry in the Abyssian expedition. He was subsequently present in the acton at Arogee and at the capture of Magdala, services that won him the Brevet of Colonel and brace of 'mentions'(London Gazette 16 and 30 June 1868). In this latter despach, Napier descrbed how Loch was among those to go forward at Magdala to 'communicate with the Chiefs who wished to surrender, and to prevent any misunderstanding'.Returning in India, he next served as Commandant of the Scinde Frontier Force, and as a Political Agent on the Scinde frontier, 1876, appointments that witness him being awarded the C.B.in May 1875; his final senior posting was a Political Resident and Brigadier-General Commanding, Aden, 1877-82. Advanced to the rank of full General in January 1889, Loch died in 1891. Sold with photograph reserch, to include Army list pages etc and L G details.
