When Lord Kitchener was all-powerful in Egypt his secretary was wearing a fez. Mesopotamia and Palestine are worth a fez. The matter was a contentious one for the Italians, as Vatra became increasingly anti-Italian.
On 17 July , the proposal was formally approved in Boston, and the Italian Consulate accepted, provided it became a unit in the Italian Army. The end of the war prevented the issue from growing more complex. Unclear policy led to nationalist criticism from imperial bases such as Egypt  see Saad Zaghlul , at the Paris Peace Conference, , nor was the resulting political handling cause for much optimism to privileged witnesses such as Aubrey, T.
Lawrence or Gertrude Bell. At the conference, there was a glimpse of further prospect for Aubrey Herbert when the Italian delegates proposed to assume shared responsibility  over the Caucasus , an area of vital strategic importance  — the Baku oilfields, access from the north to Mosul and Kirkuk. By May , the proposal appeared to be quite empty.
From his mother Elsie Howard he inherited Villa Alta Chiara an Italian rendering of "Highclere", the English seat of the Earldom at Portofino in Italy, inherited by her from, and built in by, her husband and Aubrey's father the 4th Earl. It had been a favoured retreat of Aubrey's elder brother the 5th Earl, but following their father's death it became the property of his step-mother Elsie Howard, who died there, having frequently entertained "eminent folks from the world of politics, religion mainly Catholic, of course and science".
Aubrey bequeathed the Villa to his wife Mary Vesey, and it later became "a veritable literary colony for poets, painters and writers", including their son-in-law Evelyn Waugh, Alfred Duggan, Peter Acton and Brooke Astor. Aubrey Herbert married his distant cousin, the Hon. Mary Gertrude Vesey —  , "striking looking with a ferocious temper",  only child and sole heiress of John Vesey, 4th Viscount de Vesci  — , eldest son and heir of Thomas Vesey, 3rd Viscount de Vesci d.
The 4th Viscount was a member of the Protestant Ascendancy in Ireland , but together with his wife had converted to Roman Catholicism and the couple raised their children in that faith. By his wife he had four children, one son and three daughters: . Toward the end of Herbert's life, he became totally blind.
He received very bad medical advice which persuaded him to have all his teeth extracted to help restore his sight. The dental operation resulted in blood poisoning from which he died in London on 26 September This was five months after the death of his elder half-brother, George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon , the famous Egyptologist, said by legend to have died from the " curse of Tutankhamun ", whose tomb he had discovered five months earlier.
His full-length recumbent effigy on a chest tomb with ceremonial sword above, survives in the Herbert Chapel in the Church of St Nicholas, Brushford , Somerset, near his seat at Pixton Park. Above it on decoratively sculpted wooden panelling are displayed six heraldic shields describing his ancestry and marriage. A polyglot officer able to communicate with both sides, he arranges the burial of the dead of both sides, achieving great popularity with both sides - a description that mirrors his role in the truce.
Herbert was also, in part, the model for John Buchan 's Sandy Arbuthnot. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.follow link
