Lithograph by J Scott after Abraham Cooper, published by Joseph Rogerson, 24 Norfolk Street, London, 1847.
Aliwal (1837-1859) was the mount of Lieutenant-General Sir Harry Smith. The epitaph written by Sir Harry Smith for the gravestone of his horse Aliwal tells his story,
A'Near this stone is buried Sir Harry SmithA's celebrated Arab charger of the Purest Blood. A"AliwalA". Sir Harry rode him in the battles of Maharajpore, Moodkee, Ferozeshahur [sic], Aliwal, and Sobraon. He was the only horse of the General Staff that was not killed or wounded. He came from Arabia to Calcutta, thence to Lahore; he had marched nearly all over India; came by ship to England, thence to the Cape of Good Hope and back to England. He was twenty-two yearsA old; never was sick during the eighteen years in Sir HarryA's possession. As a charger, he was incomparable, gallant and docile; as a friend, he was affectionate and faithful.A'); A© National Army Museum ; English, out of copyright
