Edward Fitzgerald Charlesworth

THE ROAD TO KASHMIR (1914-1919)

With the threat of the First World War England created an army reserve. Edward Fitzgerald Charlesworth (Great Britain, 1894-1979) joined up as a volunteer and was assigned to the 4th Queens battalion. Charlesworth was stationed in the northwestern province of Kashmir, India. From his embarkation at Southhampton until his discharge he recorded his experiences in photographs. He documented the life of British soldiers, the indigenous population and the Indian landscape. His time in India was not entirely without action, as his photographs reveal. The 4th Queens was deployed during the Mohmand blockade in November, 1917, and, not long before the battalion returned to England, in the Third Afghan War in 1919, including the rebellion in Peshawar. Charlesworth recorded both events in almost photojournalistic reportages.
