Best known for his illustrations in Major-General George McMunn’s Armies of India (1911), Brigadier-General Alfred Crowdy Lovett, C.B. (1862-1919) was commissioned into the Gloucesteshire Regiment in 1883 and soldiered in India before serving as an adjutant of the Militia and an instructor at Sandhurst. Following the outbreak of the First World War, he accompanied the original British Expeditionary Force to France and commanded a battalion of the Glosters in the retreat from Mons. He was mentioned in despatches for his services in October 1914 and created a Companion of the Bath. After being invalided home from France, he was appointed to the command of the East Lancashire Reserve Brigade, and in April 1917 took over the command of the Yorkshire Coast Defences.
