Curator's note: Recorded in the inventory as, "Extracted from Tibetan as fine for knocking out tooth of a British Officer". On pitching camp on the outskirts of Lhasa, a Tibetan monk came in to the camp to protest the British presence in the city. He injured two men with the sword he was carrying. For his crime, the Tibetan Government was fined and the robe was part of this fine, which Younghusband duly bagged as a gift to send to his wife. Then the monk was killed by hanging as a signal to all those witnessing the events that any further agression would not be tolerated. Following Charles Bell's lecture on his trip to Lhasa, given on 3 December 1923, Younghusband, who was in the audience, stood up and gave his own recollections of the monk with the sword. 'The only serious trouble we had was with a monk who ran amok in our camp and suddenly drew out his sword and cut down an officer. We tried the man, and asked him why he had done this, and he said that as he was going through our camp he saw the officer wearing an ugly hat. So he thought he must knock off the hat, and when he knocked the hat off he saw the officer's face was uglier than the hat, so he thought he would have a slash at that too. The officer was very much annoyed about this and kept muttering about it for many months afterwards. But on the whole I may say that we parted good friends with the Tibetan'.
