List of 2nd Dragoon Guards officers who went to India

Postby Matt Easton » 09 Sep 2015 21:37

According to various texts, 28 officers of the 2nd Dragoon Guards sailed for India in 1857, on the transports Blenheim and Monarch. Does anyone here know where I might be able to pin down the list of those 28 officers? Looking at Hart's army list doesn't quite seem to pin it down completely and I'm wondering if there is a publication of the list somewhere?

Thanks,
Matt

If you can't find anything else, there may POSSIBLY be something at the British Library.

I have found the following which is an INDEX reference
http://hviewer.bl.uk/IamsHViewer/Defaul ... 1.0x0000e5
IOR/Z/E/4/30/A1264: Army, Royal Troops, Dragoon Guards, Establishment of ‎ (1857) which says See entry at IOR/E/4/845, pp243-245

However, I can't find anything further

You could try and extract the names from the medal roll, always assuming only the 28 officers you are after went to India.
