James Farquharson

by Instant Noodle

Lt. Col. James Farquharson , 13th of Invercauld (1834-1888) was lieutenant colonel of Scots Fusiliers Guards.

Not to be confused with the perhaps more interesting James Farquharson (1781–1843) who was a Scottish minister, scientific writer, and Fellow of the Royal Society, who wrote some of the first important interpretations of the aurorae, showing that they were aligned with the Earth’s magnetic field.
