One of the core ideas behind campaign furniture was it was a little piece of home wherever British citizens roamed. The soldiers, clerks and support staff who administered the affairs of the British Empire all over the globe remade their local landscape to remind them of home.
Their furniture and clothes were another reminder of where they came from.
Brian Eve of the blog Toolerable sent me the above image of a Roorkee-like chair that was built by a Welsh prisoner of war who was held in Bavaria during World War II. If you ever wondered if the Roorkee chair was imprinted on the mind of the British, I think you have your answer here.
More information on the chair can be found here.
