A Connaught Rangers Officer

Recommended Posts

Hello, any member help provide info on the history of this brave man & share would be gratefully appreciated. All I have is from the Author Nathaniel Stevens book The Crimean Campaign With The Connaught Rangers 1854-55-56. He states " So numerous had been the changes in all ranks during the recent campaign, that we were almost a new regiment; out of the thirty four officers who had embarked at Liverpool in April, 1854, there were only four who now returned with the regiment, without having been absent from the duties throughout the campaign---viz., Brevet Lieutenant-Colonel E.H. Maxwell, Captain Gore, Assistant-Surgeon Williams and myself." Thanks in advance Yankee

Brief Bones, Ensign by purchase 3/3/1843, Lieut. by Purchase 19/2/47, Capt W/O purchase 29/12/54, Brevet Lt. Col. 1/1/68, retired May 1872.

Hope this is of some help. An army list from around 1870 with war services should add more bones, but what a cracking al Valore, wonder where his Crimea is?

This is a lot more info than I had before, every bit is much appreciated. I too was wondering where his Crimea medal is or if he had any other campaign medals. It sure would be nice to reunite them after all these years. Thanks

Sincerely

Brian
