In 1861 he is in the Channel Isles
Military Hospital Fort Regent St Helier Jersey
James Henry Holmes , age   4 Scatare Constantinople Turkey
Father-  Henry Holmes age 32 Sergeant in charge (can't read occupation) born Albany Barracks Isle of Wight
Mother - Mary Holmes age 30 born Ireland
Niece - Mary Kilpatrick age 5 born Leeds yorkshire.
Brother - Charles George Holmes age 2 born Beggars Bush ? Barracks Dublin

So a small time frame to look for the family's return to the UK
