Grenadier Guards Mutiny, 1890. While the term 'mutiny' was reported in some newspapers on the evening of Monday 7th July 1890, the following day The Times played it down. There had indeed been an incident involving the 2nd battalion of the Grenadier Guards. The privates of the battalion (well six of its companies) in refusing to fall in had in essence 'failed to obey a lawful command', i.e., mutinied. Of course, because neither the men, nor the authorities wanted this outcome or its implications they bargained it down, making an incident out of a possible disaster. It was in fact, the first of several incidents over the next couple of years (Victorian Wars Forum). Size: Octavo (standard book size). 35 pages. Multiple copies available this title.
