Victor Alexander Bruce, 9th Earl of Elgin, 13th Earl of Kincardine KG GCSI GCIE PC (16 May 1849 – 18 January 1917), known as Lord Bruce until 1863, was a right-wing British Liberal politician who served as Viceroy of India from 1894 to 1899. He was appointed by Arthur Balfour to hold an investigative enquiry into the conduct of the Boer War from 1902–03. The Elgin Commission was the first of its kind in the British Empire, it travelled to South Africa, and took oral evidence from men who had actually fought in the battles. It was the first to value the lives of the dead, and to consider the feelings of mourning relatives left behind. And it was the first occasion in the history of the British Army that recognised the testimony of ordinary soldiery as well as that of the officers.
