Born in 1864, Buck was a philanthropist, polo player and travel companion of Prince Albert Victor, Grandson of Queen Victoria.
Educated at Edinburgh and Cambridge, Buck’s love of travel began after he was embroiled in the Cleveland Street Scandal of 1889. Buck fled London with The Prince to begin a Royal tour of India. He was made Honorary Major, 4th Regiment, Bengal Infantry where he lived as a guest of the Maharajah.
After many global adventures, Buck returned to his beloved Scotland in 1900. He continued to support music and theatre and was a patron to many young performers of the day.
