If that is correct then the father on death reg as James is wrong.

Seems James was in the army and served in India ???

Thanks,

Thanks gibbo.

Now I'll check where the 52nd was in 1846-1849.

... Deceased was a native of Kilkenny, Ireland, and came to the state over fifty years ago. He was attached to the police service in this state for over thirty years, and was one of those who were sent to Young at the time of the Lambing Flat riot. Mr. Lawless served through the Indian mutiny and gained medals for distinguished service. ...

Should be on the Medal Roll too.

The 52nd (Oxfordshire) Regiment of Foot was a light infantry regiment of the British Army throughout much of the 18th and 19th centuries. The regiment first saw active service during the American War of Independence, and were posted to India during the Anglo-Mysore Wars ... <<< too early.

Does not seem to fit.

In early 1842, the 52nd performed garrison duty in Barbados, where British units frequently supplemented the local forces. In 1842, the regiment returned to Canada, and were posted to New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Quebec; they left Canada in 1845.

The 52nd later returned to India, arriving in Allahabad in 1853.

Does not say where it was 1845 - 1853.

You got your internet back?
Yesterday with a different ISP and twice the speed but it took from 9 October. !!!

The old ISP claims I entered into an 18-month contract when I moved in June.

They want to charge me $99 to exit early.

I didn't actually enter into a new contract at all. That will probably end up with the Ombudsman TIO.

Another ombudsman has done nothing yet to help me fight a gas bill for $499 when it should have been about $40.
