It could also be Quetta Brigade of which there were two.

I think it refers to 2nd Dragoon Guards / Queen's Bays ~ I have a photo of the officers' mess Sialkot 1924 - matched a name! Will post anon!

Dear Simon,

Yes, please do. The officers' mess at Sialkot, 1924, is of high interest.

Kindest regards,

Kim.

It's a shame the photo is 1924 because a John Henry Francis Collingwood was gazetted to The Bays on 3.9.1925, and on the end of the back row is where you would expect to find the most junior of officers.

Label says 1924 or 1925 so you may well be right Harry - thank you!

Dear All, trying to find more information on Ventura Harry Misa in 1914.  The above post says he was at Nery.  I also understand he was wounded in 1914 and evacuated to UK and Millbank Hospital.  Anyone know the date and where?

 

Also was he part of the initial Royal Scots Greys deployment from Southhampton arriving Havre 17th August  1914 on SS Blackwell?

 

I have quite a bit of biographical info on him but any ideas which school he attended?

 

Many thanks, Nick

Nick,

 

He went to prep school at St Anthony's, Eastbourne and then attended Eton.

 

In 1940 I believe he was living at 'The Uplands, Edgehill, Banbury.

 

Oh, and if you did not know he was a Catholic.

 

Regards,

 

Matthew

Matthew, this is great, filled in a big gap which I had been searching for sometime and opens up more searching possibilities.

 

Best regards, Nick
