The oil painting of Major General Sir Charles H. Powell, KCB, was painted by Ella Powell to celebrate his Colonelcy of the 1st King George’s Own Gurkha Rifles (The Malun Regiment) from 1916–1943. The painting was displayed in the dining room of Ella Powell’s house at The Lower House, Wickham, Hampshire during the 1920s and 1930s up until the sitter's death in 1943. Later in the mid-1970s the painting was displayed in the Officer’s Mess at Bordon Training Camp, until it was donated to the Gurkha Museum in 2003 when the camp was officially closed.
