He was attached to the 8th Bn Machine Gun Corps that was command by my Grandfather.  If you search 8th Bn Machine Gun Corps on YouTube you will find a photograph with him in it.

Her name was Anne Bowles and she was born in Youghal in 1799 as stated in the 1851 census when she lived in Liscard.  We knew of a connection with Barnes Wallis but I will have to rediscover it.  Barnes Slyfied (photo attached) served in The Royal Irish Fusiliers, his daughter married my Great Grandfather who was a Lt in his Regiment at El Teb.  However, his Grandfather Gilbert served in another 61st of Foot securing the West Indies from the French and later he fought in the Peninsular war in the battle of Salamanca.  His father Joseph was also in the Army and retired as a Major having served in the West Indies.

Barnes Slyfield Robinson was my Great Great Grandfather who served in the Royal Irish Fusiliers (89th Regt) in the Crimea and commanded them at El Teb in the Sudan.  Let me know if I can help further.
