John Blair

I wasn't sure where to put this thread!

I am not overly familiar with searching out military records although I have browsed through some of the National Archives records, so if anyone could provide any pointers I'd be obliged.

I am seeking information on Lt. Col. John Blair born about 1841 in Kirkcudbright, Scotland to David Blair and Mary Gordon. John was married to Clementina Ross Stewart. As a military officer (his career spanned from 1860-1881) the family apparently moved back and forth from India and the UK. Their eldest and youngest child were both born in India while the other two were born on Isle of Wight and in Hampshire. I want to track the family's movements (I have assumed that whenever John would go back to India the family would follow).

An "outline" of his career has been located and also a photo. Google Books was quite helpful, but still doesn't get into the nitty-gritty.
