"The statue of this hero of the Indian Mutiny (1822-1857) was unveiled in New Delhi by the Viceroy (the Earl of Minto) in April 1906. After Independence it was removed from its plinth in Nicholson Gardens and placed in store until 1960, when it was purchased by Nicholson's old school, Duncannon Royal College in Northern Ireland" (Sankey 195).
