He was a relative of mine by marriage. he was born in Pickering, N.Yorkshire 28/07/1849. When he was 12 he became a boy soldier in the 21st Lancers who we stationed nearby. At 18 on 16th December 1867 he enlisted in the 6th Regiment Royal (Inniskilling) Dragoon Guards, who later were known as Hussars.
The regiment were based in Ireland for many years at Dundalk. I understand from family that the last entry in his army record book 4th March 1889. What that entry was I do not know , but it could have been his demob date. Is it possible that his regiment served in Africa in the 1st Boer War?
