Aide-de-camp
An AIDE-DE-CAMP (UK : /ˌeɪddəˈkɒ̃/ or US : /-ˈkæmp/ ; French expression meaning literally helper in the camp ) is a personal assistant or secretary to a person of high rank , usually a senior military , police or government officer , a member of a royal family , or a head of state . This is not to be confused with an adjutant , who is the senior administrator of a military unit. The first aide-de-camp is typically the foremost personal aide. In some countries, the aide-de-camp is considered to be a title of honour (which confers the post-nominal letters ADC or A de C), and participates at ceremonial functions . The badge of office for an aide-de-camp is usually the aiguillette , a braided cord in gold or other colours, worn on the shoulder of a uniform. Whether it is worn on the left or the right shoulder is dictated by protocol

Governor Of Bombay
Until the 18th century, Bombay
Bombay
consisted of seven islands separated by shallow sea. These seven islands were part of a larger archipelago in the Arabian sea, off the western coast of India. The date of city's founding is unclear—historians trace back urban settlement to the late 17th century after the British secured the seven islands from the Portuguese to establish a secure base in the region. The islands provided the British with a sheltered harbour for trade, in addition to a relatively sequestered location that reduced the chances of land-based attacks. Over the next two centuries, the British dominated the region, first securing the archipelago from the Portuguese, and later defeating the Marathas
