Sergeant Harrington - Malakand

Postby Glen Jones » 20 Feb 2010 20:01

Hello,

Sergeant Harrington had a lucky escape during the attack on the Malakand when tribesmen burst into his hut and killed Lieutenant Manley. Does anyone know who Harrington was badged to? Sgt Byrne RE was the only British OR casualty there.

Many thanks,
Glen.

Well Lieut Manley was an officer of the Commisariat Dept.
If Sgt Harrington was associated with Lt Manley as you imply, then Army Service Corps would be my guess.

Thanks,

I guessed either ASC or perhaps RE.

According to 'The Pathan Revolt in North-West India' by H. Woosam Mills (1897), Sergeant Harrington was of the Ordnance Department.
