About the author

Ethel St. Clair Grimwood

The Grimwoods' memorable stay in Manipur was unhfortunately broken by the mutiny in 1890. In this rebellion, Ethel escaped-the details of which she has recorded in a sentimental and pathetic manner-while Grimwood was killed. However, the sad news reached her many days later, after she had landed at a safe place in Cachar. On her return to England, she was honoured by the Queen with a Red Cross, for serving in Manipur under the most adverse circumstances.
