Hi, chaps and chapettes. My name's Harry Warren and I live in Manchester, England. Since I recently discovered - by coincidence a week before the anniversary of the battle - that I have an ancestor who fought at Abu Klea, I'm keenly interested in everything to do with him and it. The bloke in question was 1152 Trooper Joseph Almonds, who joined the Royal Horse Guards in July 1881 and served for a bit longer than 21 years. I found some basic information about his army career online, and know that he also fought in the second Boer War. A genealogist reckons that Joseph will be my first cousin, three times removed.
