About Curzon

Lord George Nathaniel Curzon (1859 - 1925) entered the British House of Commons as a Conservative MP in 1886, where he served as undersecretary of India and Foreign Affairs. He was appointed Viceroy of India at the turn of the 20th century where he delineated the North West Frontier Province, ordered a military expedition to Tibet, and unsuccessfully tried to partition the province of Bengal during his six-year tenure. Curzon served as Leader of the House of Lords in Prime Minister Lloyd George's War Cabinet and became Foreign Secretary in January 1919, where his most famous act was the drawing of the Curzon Line between a new Polish state and Russia. His publications include Russia in Central Asia (1889) and Persia and the Persian Question (1892). In real life, "Curzon" is a US citizen from the East Coast who has been a financial analyst, freelance translator, and university professor; he is currently on assignment in Tokyo.

    A modern Army Colonel? Nope.

    It should be a Power Point slide. With bullet points.

    And a graph.

    Truly masterful, m’Lord! I especially dig the Lord Curzonified coif, Widow’s Peak and all. My congratulations, and unabashed acquiescence to the true masters of visual arts!

    Looks like a Tintin coif to me….

    If we wanted to be period-accurate (other than the ACUs), perhaps you could replace the right-ensign American flag with a Prussian flag and the U.S. Army name tape with “Preussische Armee”.
