WO100/77 very clearly suggests he had access to a property in Dinard, third line down in the third photograph, with his address in Bayswater crossed through in the second in my last post.
Moreover, it is confirmed a second time in respect of his subsequent service within the RHV.

I have seen the WO76 records, however they only show me from 1900 until the Great War (the time that Pepys was an officer).
Where did you find the WO100/77 French connection? I cannot find the connection to Dinard. I have seen the Jameson's Raid roll
Well, there would certainly be no point in the BSA Company sending any correspondence, medal/clasp and so forth to a particular address if he was not actually residing there, but, I only suggested that it may have been a summer retreat, it might have been the case that it was not.

I downloaded WO100/77 from the National Archives sometime ago and have been through it a couple of times. Can you help by pointing me to the right page, please, as I haven't been able to find the reference to Pepys shown in your photo (and more importantly for me a similar entry for my grandfather, James Joseph Smith!). It's such a big document, that I must have missed it, if you're sure this comes from WO100/77.
Much appreciate any wisdom you can impart!
