Bayard of India[edit]

I understand that a bayard is a sort of mythical horse, but I don't get why Outram was called "The Bayard of India" or why it should be "poignant" that the phrase was inscribed on his tomb. I think this needs to be explained. CulturalSnow (talk) 14:09, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Simple - it was after the French knightly hero Pierre de Terrail, sieur de Bayard, known as "sans peur et sans reproche".Cloptonson (talk) 10:34, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

Death place[edit]

The infobox states his death place as Bromley in Kent. He actually died on holiday in Pau, southern France, as attested by his articles in the DNB and more recent ODNB - but his death could have been registered in the Bromley registration district where the informant lived or had returned (if an accompanying relative), assuming it was not a namesake of identical age and death date. (Note the index to GRO Death Records only mentions names, ages, date deaths.) I will correct the death place information accordingly.Cloptonson (talk) 10:38, 1 October 2016 (UTC)
