Sir Leslie Matthew Ward ('Spy') (1851–1922) He was a caricaturist who drew numerous portraits which were published by Vanity Fair, under the pseudonym "Spy". Ward drew 1,325 cartoons for Vanity Fair between 1873 & 1911. His portraits of royalty, nobility, and women, however, were over-sympathetic, if not sycophantic. Later he became even more of a complimentary portraitist, moving from caricature to what he termed "characteristic portraits'. He joined the regiment in 1876.
