Small snippet from the Civil & Military Gazette :

  • RAMC (1886)
  • Major (1898)
  • Lt.-Col (1906)

He was originally due to rotate back to the UK in January 1915. He had only returned to Dalhousie from Lahore the month before he died.

Interesting for me was that Rev. Maunsell carried out the funeral service. I previously thought the Rev. Maunsell had left Dalhousie in January to take up the Chaplain role at Lahore.

Having followed this thread I see that Rev. Maunsell did not take the appointment at Lahore but remained at Dalhousie until September when he left to become the Chaplain at Karachi. Error in my research corrected. Thank you.

Regards

Dave
