After being educated locally he followed the career path of his father and received a commission in the Royal Engineers in 1899 after which he saw service in South Africa during the Anglo-Boer War. His interest in art flourished during his army career which allowed him to visit many parts of the world and paint scenes still considered exotic to most Europeans at this time. In between the Boer and First World Wars Gandy served in Somaliland, Egypt and the Sudan where he became well known for his sketches and caricatures.The following paintings were mostly completed between 1924 and 1928 during which time Gandy was serving as a Lieutenant Colonel with the Royal Engineers in Colombo, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). The popularity and quality of his artwork was demonstrated by the fact that his scenes of Hong Kong, China and Singapore were reproduced in books and also on postcards by the famous publishers Raphael Tuck. His work serves as a record of cultures and ways of life which have now changed almost beyond recognition in many of the countries that he visited. H. G. Gandy retired from the army in 1932 after an illustrious career, during which he was awarded the Distinguished Service Order, Order of the British Empire, and Turkish Order of the Mejidie. He died at Hampshire, England in 1950 at the age of 70.

After being educated locally he followed the career path of his father and received a commission in the Royal Engineers in 1899 after which he saw service in South Africa during the Anglo-Boer War. His interest in art flourished during his army career which allowed him to visit many parts of the world and paint scenes still considered exotic to most Europeans at this time. In between the Boer and First World Wars Gandy served in Somaliland, Egypt and the Sudan where he became well known for his sketches and caricatures.The following paintings were mostly completed between 1924 and 1928 during which time Gandy was serving as a Lieutenant Colonel with the Royal Engineers in Colombo, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). The popularity and quality of his artwork was demonstrated by the fact that his scenes of Hong Kong, China and Singapore were reproduced in books and also on postcards by the famous publishers Raphael Tuck. His work serves as a record of cultures and ways of life which have now changed almost beyond recognition in many of the countries that he visited. H. G. Gandy retired from the army in 1932 after an illustrious career, during which he was awarded the Distinguished Service Order, Order of the British Empire, and Turkish Order of the Mejidie. He died at Hampshire, England in 1950 at the age of 70.
