Capt. Kehar Singh Garewal OBE MVI
A committed soldier - he expected all
his sons to join the army - and they did.
 
He was appointed ADC to Queen
Victoria. The sword was given to him
by her.
 
I never met him, but the stories about
him are legion.
 
 
My father Brig. J.S. Garewal, 3rd Cavalry.
IC 19. Which means he was the 19th officer
to be commissioned in the Indian Army.
 
 
Ace polo player,
epicure, bon vivant.
 
He spoke several languages fluently and had an
impressive intellect.
 
Convivial with friends, but somewhat formidable and
a little out of reach with his daughters..
