Lieutenant General Alexander Dirom was a British military commander who served in Barbados, Jamaica and India. He is remembered both as a military commander and an agriculturist, with his most notable contribution being identifying the importance of salt in animal diets, which led to the widespread use of "salt-licks" from around 1800. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society and the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
