George Clarke Musgrave portrait Celebrating the Life and Times
of a Victorian Adventurer

From My Family Roots In Folkestone, come with me to the Ashanti territories; to Garcia's Santiago; to the lands of the Transvaal; the battlefields of France; the brutal hotbed of rebellion in China; and the glorious vastness of America. Share with me the raw brutality, the traumas and the evils that I have seen of war and my undying admiration for the men and women who have lived and loved, suffered and triumphed in its fighting. Discover in my writings my attempts to chronicle the joys, the tears, the pleasures, the pain and the blessings of a life that I tried to live well.
From 1874 until I answered the Reaper's call in 1932, my time in this world carried me through the great challenges and changes of the reigns of Victoria, Edward VII and George V. For my own character, though, I always felt myself more closely aligned with the reformers, the heroes, the visionaries and the Empire builders of the 19th century, than with the dour and stifling traditionalists of the 20th. But, dear reader, it is you who must decide whether the soubriquet of "Victorian Adventurer" that I seem to have acquired is appropriate.
I am now at rest with my parents in the beautiful countryside of Swanage and it is the sad reality that I can no longer recount my life and times to you in person. That task has slipped several branches down the family tree and fallen to another aspiring wordsmith - the grandson of my brother Henry Paul - through whom I will now proceed to channel my stories for you.
