Caption for Brompton, The Gordon Memorial And R E Institute 1894
This 1890 bronze statue of General Gordon of Khartoum on camel-back was the work of E Onslow Ford, and
commemorates his illustrious career. It was erected five years after the general's death. He had been in command
of the Royal Engineers at Gravesend from 1865-71, and was responsible for the construction of the protective forts
along the Thames. The adjacent Royal Engineers Museum contains many Gordon relics, including the folding
chair he used at Khartoum, and a yellow jacket given to him by the Emperor of China.
