Joseph Henry Russell Bailey, 2nd Baron Glanusk CB CBE DSO (26 October 1864 – 11 January 1928), was a British peer.

Glanusk was the eldest son of Joseph Russell Bailey, 1st Baron Glanusk, and succeeded his father in the barony in 1906. Lord Glanusk married Editha Elma, daughter of Major Warden Sergison, in 1890. He died in January 1928, aged 63 leaving the ancestral home, Glanusk Park, and his titles to his son Wilfred Russell Bailey. Lady Glanusk died in 1938.

In 1885 he was commissioned Lieutenant in the Grenadier Guards from the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, and he was promoted Captain in 1896. After the outbreak of the Second Boer War in October 1899, a corps of imperial volunteers from London was formed in late December 1899. The corps included infantry, mounted infantry and artillery divisions and was authorized with the name City of London Imperial Volunteers. It proceeded to South Africa in January 1900, returned in October the same year, and was disbanded in December 1900. Captain Bailey was appointed as Adjutant to the infantry division on 3 January 1900, with the temporary rank of Major in the Army,[1] and served as such until the corps was disbanded. He was promoted to Major in 1900, and appointed a Companion of the Distinguished Service Order (DSO) for his services in South Africa later the same year.[2] He retired from the Grenadier Guards in 1903, and became Lieutenant-Colonel commanding the 3rd Battalion, South Wales Borderers, Territorial Force.

He was appointed a Deputy Lieutenant of Breconshire in March 1887,[3] and succeeded his father in the appointment as Lord Lieutenant of Breconshire in 1905, a post he held until his death.
