rksimpson Posted 1 November , 2013 Share Posted 1 November , 2013 Hi I am doing some research For this museum - http://www.maryboroughmuseum.org/ on Lieutenant Brian Onslow. He was listed in the Indian Army Quarterly List of January 1912 as a 2nd Lieutenant (from 6th September 1911) with the 2nd Battalion Royal West Kent Regiment and also under remarks it has unattached list. By the 1st World War he was with the 11th King Edwards Own Lancers (Probyns Horse) as part of the Indian Army and was with the ANZAC forces at Gallipoli as Aide de Camp to Lieutenant General Sir William R Birdwood, K.C.S.I., K.C.M.G., C.B., C.I.E., D.S.O. He took part in the landings at the Dardanelles on 25th April 1915. On 28th July he was killed at Gallipoli and was buried at Anzac Cove in Beach Cemetery II F 6. He was Mentioned in Despatches by General Sir Ian Hamilton on 5th November 1915. I have all his records from Ancestry, CWGC etc, but was hoping to find his service records. On looking at National Archives I thought I had found him, but when a kind forum member checked, he found it was for someone else with the same initials and surname. It would appear as he was with the Indian Army his service records are somewhere else. Does anywhere have his service records and is it accessable? If anyone knows how to access anything else on his service it would be appreciated. I also have information on his brothers, 2 who were also killed. Milo also served in an Indian Regiment and no record is available. Arthur was in the RN and I have his records from NA. Eric has records at NA, but as it looks like he served after the war they are still with MOD and 30 pounds is too expensive to get them! Thanks for any help regards Robert Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
