Excerpt from Lord Roberts: A Biography

On this particular ship was a lad of nineteen, small and delicate to look at, so delicate indeed that older people shook their heads and talked of the folly of his facing a tropical climate.' But underneath the apparent delicacy lay a vigorous spirit and a wiry constitution, the love of a simple, hardy outdoor life, the hatred of anything like luxury or coddling.

For young Frederick Roberts was every inch of him a soldier's son, and India, the land of his birth, was the land which called him. He came of a fighting and of an Irish stock, and what better combination could be found as an heritage for one destined to be the greatest soldier of his age His great-great grandfather, a Huguenot refugee, settled in Water ford, had fought for England at the battle of the Boyne. Two of his uncles had been in the navy; the one, Sir Samuel Roberts, who had been in fifty three actions, having commenced his adventurous career at the age of eleven, and afterwards had per formed deeds of daring which carry us back to the days of the Elizabethan sea-dogs. And his father, Sir Abraham Roberts, who lived to the age of ninety, has been called the patriarch of Indian Generals, and was a man of strong character, sound sense, and great tact, who won a high reputation for the manner in which he handled critical affairs in Afghanistan.
