Footnotes

  • Theodore Howard Somervell O.B.E. was a trained surgeon but had a passion for climbing. He took part in the early expeditions of 1922 and 1924 to climb Mount Everest. Just after Somervell's 1924 attempt at Everest he moved to southern India as a missionary doctor and remained in the country for nearly four decades. Somervell recorded many vistas of mountain ranges and passes in watercolours from his time in India.
