Major General Edward Louis Spears. Born 1886 he joined the 8th Hussars in 1906 and served
in India. In 1915 he won the Military Cross being wounded four times. He became friends with
Winston Churchill. Churchill admired his courage and ability. Spears retired from the army in 1920
and after a failed business venture he went into politics under Churchill. Towards the end of Spears
career he served in Syria, which is where he used the Field Chair that we own. Our research shows
that the chair was part of the kit that was issued to Senior British Officers stationed in the field.
We have made a replica of Major General Spears Officers Field Chair.
