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

Kind Regards,

Andrew

Hi Frank, thank you for the information that makes sense that he may have had a holiday home in Dinard. What does "RHV" stand for?

Pepys subsequently served in the Rhodesia Horse Volunteers in Mashonaland.

Thank you Frank, I did not have either one of those pieces of information before. I think it is strange how they would list his address as his holiday house on an official 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.

Hello, Frank

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!

Best regards

Chris
