In the short story Triangle at Rhodes, General Barnes was a guest at the hotel in Rhodes where Poirot had gone to for a quiet holiday. He was an elderly gentleman, often seen in the company of the younger guests swopping gossip.

General Barnes does not appear in the film adaptation of the story in episode 6 of Series 1 of ITV's Agatha Christie's Poirot drama series. The name is however borrowed for another wholly different character, that of Major Barnes.
