Harold Carmichael Wylly, CB (18 January 1858 – 3 September 1932) was a British Army colonel and military historian. Wylly was born in Meerut in the North West Province of British India, the son of E. M. Wylly, a judge in the High Court of Agra. He was educated at Henley Grammar School, Wimbledon School and the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, before embarking on a career as an army officer when he was commissioned a lieutenant on 11 September 1878, serving first with the 95th (Derbyshire) Regiment of Foot, which in 1881 was merged into the Sherwood Foresters, as the 2nd battalion (Derbyshire Regiment). He served in the Anglo-Egyptian War in 1882, was promoted to captain on 1 May 1884, served in the Sikkim Expedition in 1888, was promoted to major on 26 May 1893, and served in the Tirah Campaign 1897–98. In February 1900 he joined his battalion when it transferred to Malta. Following the outbreak of the Second Boer War, the 1st battalion of his regiment had embarked for South Africa in November 1899. Leaving his own battalion at Malta, Wylly transferred to South Africa where he was promoted to lieutenant-colonel in command of the 1st battalion from 22 December 1900. For services during the war, he was mentioned in despatches (dated 8 April 1902), and appointed a Companion of the Order of the Bath (CB) in the South Africa honours list published on 26 June 1902. The battalion was later stationed in Hong Kong. (Wikipedia).
