Experiences of two brothers

Some years ago June Bush inherited a set of diaries, journals and letter written between 1853 by her great-great-grandfather Captain Richard Warner.

Also with the collection were sixty-five letters from his son Ashton Cromwell Warner, who as a young serving officer in the Bengal Army, found himself caught up in the Seige of Lucknow during the Indian Rebellion of 1857.

When June subsequently discovered in the British Library a further series of sixty-nine letters written to his parents during the Indian Rebellion by Ashton’s younger brother Wynyard, plus a number of other letters from concerned relatives and friends, she decided to compile the whole unpublished collection into a book.
