LambtonHCaptainBorn in 1856, and is son of the 2nd Earl of Durham. He entered the Royal Navy in 1870, and took part in the bombardment of Alexandria and the Egyptian War of 1882, receiving the medal and two clasps. In the early days of Boer War, Captain Lambton (as his rank then was) landed a naval brigade of 280 men from the Powerful at Durban, and proceeded to Iadvsmith, where he arrived on Oct 30, 1899, with two Maxims, four long naval 12-pounders, and two 45-pounders, the popular conviction being that the timely arrival of these guns and the fine marksmanship displayed by his men saved Ladysmith from falling into the hands of the Boer forces. Sir George White referred to Captain Lambton as "the life of the garrison throughout the siege". Admiral Lambton arrived back in England in May, 1900, and since 1901 commanded the King's yacht, until in November, 1904, he was appointed Rear Admiral of the Third Cruiser Squadron in the Mediterranean in succession to Sir Baldwin Walker. He is the youngest flag officer in the British Navy, and was promoted KCVO in 1906. He later attained the rank of Admiral of the Fleet in March 1915 and was a Member of Parliament. GCB
