Sir Henry at Rawlinson End, released in 1978, is a largely spoken-word, solo comedy recording by Vivian Stanshall, a British musician with the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. It originated in his Rawlinson End sessions for the John Peel Show on BBC Radio 1 beginning in 1975, and a similarly-named track on the Bonzo Dog Band's 1972 album Let's Make Up and Be Friendly.

Sir Henry at N'didi’s Kraal continues the story of the dissolute aristocrat and explorer Sir Henry Rawlinson, this time dealing with his attempts on behalf of the "Geographic Society" to locate a lost tribe of Zulus in South Africa. In contrast to Sir Henry at Rawlinson End, it is almost entirely spoken word, with only one song included. The album is predominantly a parody of the colonial manners and attitudes of the British Empire, using Sir Henry as a mouthpiece for various ridiculous and sometimes racist philosophies which Stanshall could spoof.

Our Sir Henry summer camp develops English skills for 9 to 14 year olds with an international group of peers. Studio Cambridge's Sir Henry Summer Camp has been running at Hockerill College every year since 1997 It is always a very popular programme so early booking is advised, especially for early July. Hockerill College in the town of Bishop's Stortford has a secure environment. It is self-contained and has the advantage of having both accommodation and classrooms on the same site. It is an ideal centre for our younger students, aged 9 to 12 years old, or for 13 & 14 year olds who are not yet ready for more independence with older teenagers

To call Sir Henry at Rawlinson End (the first of Stanshall's Sir Henry spoken-word sagas) bizarre is like saying Carter has a few little liver pills. The former Bonzo Dog Band frontman lets his imagination run riot on what is, essentially, a parody of British radio serials mixed with his interpretation of . Wodehouse, all tempered by the deflating sensibility of, say, Monty Python.

With more money than sense, and completely lacking in humanity, honour, and decency, Sir Henry has neither morals nor backbone. Wellesley wants rid of him and fortunately Simmerson obliges by turning tail at the Battle of Talavera.
