The Procession towards the city gates
The Durbar included sports, music and competitions and a review of 34,000 troops. An investiture, a state ball, the biggest display of Indian arts and crafts ever assembled and a very popular review of a delegation of retainers from some of the states were further highlights of the event.
The event was entitled the 'Native chief's retainers review' and attracted considerable press interest in both India and Britain.

I want to say that I couldn't have done all this research without the huge help of my dearest friends and fellow Durbar fans, Bill Pitt and Bill Spear. I will never get tired of thanking you, guys
