Lord Frederick Sleigh Roberts, V.C., of Khandahar, Pretoria and Waterford

Lord Frederick Sleigh Roberts, V.C., of Khandahar, Pretoria and WaterfordOne of the nicest and probably the most famous statue in the vicinity of the University of Glasgow, Lord Robert’s Monument, sits at the top of Kelvingrove Park by Park Circus. Erected in 1916, two years after his death, the statue commemorates Lord Frederick Sleigh Roberts V.C. (1832-1914). He was considered one of the most successful commanders of the Victorian era, and served as a soldier for over five decades. He is depicted on the statue on his favourite Arab Charger, ‘Volonel’.
