8th Kings Royal Irish Hussars

Hello this is my 1st Thread, i have been tracing my family/tree for some 3 years now, have collated a fair bit up to now, however my family roots in INDIA are very hard to find,!!!!!!!!!!, i know my G/G/grand/dad JAMES CHARLES KING was the BANDMASTER for the 8 th K/R/I/Hussars from 1883-1888, where he died in Meerut aged 41, alas i can find no history of the Reg/ts BAND, & their time in INDIA, i have searched the internet, googled, been in contact with the HUSSARs Museum, frustratingly not much data, i know as Fact that he was the BANDMASTER, as he passed a MUSIC/COURSE at Kneller/Hall in 1882, is there some kind soul out there who could help me out on this issue, would welcome any advise Thank You Bert 1940
