66th Regiment - A black and white photocopy (and CD Disc) of a photo of Surgeon Major Alexander Francis Preston, Medical Officer of the 66th of Foot at Maiwand. He joined the Medical Service of the army in 1863 after graduating from Trinity College, Dublin. He joined the 66th as their Medical Officer and was present at the affair at Ghirisk, the battle of Maiwand (where he was wounded) and the retreat to Kandahar. He served throughout the siege at Kandahar, being awarded a mention in dispatches. After the Afghanistan campaign he was promoted Surgeon General, and was temporary General of the Army Medical Department in 1901. He was also Honorary Physician to the King. He died in 1907. 'You have been in Afghanistan, I perceive' said Sherlock Holmes to Dr Watson in the book ?Study in Scarlet? produced in 1887. Sherlock Holmes later went on ?Here is a gentleman of a medical type, but with the air of a military man. Clearly an army doctor, then. He has just come from the tropics, for his face is dark, and that is not the natural tint of his skin, for his wrists are fair. He has undergone hardship and sickness, as his haggard face says clearly. His left arm has been injured. He holds it in a stiff and unnatural manner. Where in the tropics could an English army doctor have seen such hardship and got his arm wounded? Clearly in Afghanistan?? Conan Doyle the author and writer who produced Sherlock Holmes based the character of Doctor Watson on Surgeon Major Preston and his experiences with the 66th.
