Sir Dhunjibhoy Bomanji


1862 - 1937

Indian businessman and philanthropist. Bomanji was one of a wealthy Parsee family based in Bombay, who eventually settled in England, becoming a pillar of British Society. He had a house in Windsor and estate in Harrogate. Bomanji gave generously to charities which supported ex-servicemen and war widows following the First World War, and included Field Marshal Douglas Haig (1861 - 1928) amongst his social circle. Knighted in 1922, Bomanji gifted a statue of Haig to Edinburgh Corporation in 1923, which is now located in Edinburgh Castle.
