Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lieutenant-Colonel George Gawler, KH, was the second governor of South Australia; from 17 October 1838 until 15 May 1841. Gawler was the only child of Captain Samuel Gawler, captain in the 73rd Regiment of Foot, and his wife Julia, née Russell. Gawler's father was killed in battle in Mysore, India in December 1804. The Gawler family historically came from Devon. George Gawler was educated by a tutor, then at a school in Cold Bath, Islington. Two years were then spent at the military college, Great Marlow where he was a diligent and clever student. In October 1810 Gawler obtained a commission as an ensign in the 52nd Regiment of Foot and in January 1812 went to the Peninsular War. He was a member of a storming party at Badajoz, and was wounded and saved from death by a soldier who lost his own life. He was in Spain until 1814, taking part in the advance on Madrid. The regiment returned to England and Gawler, now a lieutenant, fought at the Battle of Waterloo
