LUARD, Richard George Amherst, British soldier, born in England in 1829. He was the eldest son of Lieutenant-Colonel John Luard, a peninsular and Waterloo officer; and was educated at the Royal military college, Sandhurst, from which he obtained his commission in 1845, without purchase. He served in India, the Crimea, and China, was stationed at Halifax, Nova Scotia, 1873-'5, as assistant military secretary to Sir William O. G. Haly, and became major-general, 1 October, 1877. He was appointed to the command of the militia of Canada, with the rank of major-general, on 5 August, 1880. His rigorous application of the discipline and regulations of the regular army rendered him unpopular with some of the officers and men of that service.
