MacGregor was one of the most distinguished officers of his generation. He served in the Mutiny, the Bhutan campaigns (1864-66) and in Afghanistan, but was perhaps best known for his long service in Central Asia. The earlier sections are drawn from his letters to his father; after 1869, selections are taken from MacGregor's own journal.
