I'm searching for any details regarding a Lieutenant John George Corry of the 70th (or the Surrey) Regiment of Foot; he appears in the 1837 List, and does not appear in the Hart's the List for August 1839.
As is the case with other officers names that simply disappear from the list, I believe he may have died or been killed in action.
Unfortunately I can't find a casualty list for 1839 however, I believe he may have been attached to EIC forces during the middle months of 1839. The only unsubstantiated information I can find is that a Lieutenant by the name Corry (no Christian names given) died near Shikapoor in June 1839.
If this was the same man, it would explain why he was gone from the list published in August 1839.
There are two other officers by the name of Corry, but I can't place their regiments as being involved in the 1st Afghan War.
Can anyone help with specific details that will confirm whether or not Lieut. J. G. Corry of the 70th Foot, died in 1839?
