Hi all, me again.

Joseph Thomas Swannell. 1849 - 1896. (Thomas J. Swannell as shown in 1881)

In 1881 he is living with his wife Elizabeth (nee-Ives). in Canterbury, and his occupatoin is given as Soldier, E.K.M. which I assume is The East Kent Militia.

They are lodging with another Soldier - William Hallett - Soldier R.H.A (Royal Horse Artillery).

Was the E.K.M called the 'Buffs' or did that come later.

Also, I cannot find him in 1871, so he must have been away at some conflict or other.

He married 1877 in Princes Risborough,Buckinghamshire.
