A Photographer's War: Hardman in India

 © National Trust

From 1917-1922, Kenneth Burrell and Edward Chambré Hardman served as Gurkha soldiers in India. Far from the battlefields of Europe, Burrell and Hardman forged a friendship that would lead to the foundation of Burrell and Hardman photographers in 1923.

Read Hardman's memories of his time in India and discover the Indian family connections which led him there.

Travels with a Camera

Edward and Margaret spent their holidays touring the countryside in their Daimler in search of the perfect picture. Photographs taken in the UK and across Europe are joined by souvenirs such as Scottish jams, sea shells from various coasts and a multitude of guidebooks and maps.

Well worn suitcases as well as fishing, bicycling and golfing equipment tell the story of an adventurous and artistic couple.
