Shaun - can I just ask why there isn't a British Army, Worldwide Index for 1881? Is it just not available, or not available online?

The Worldwide Army Indexes are not official documents per se; they have been compiled by military historian Roger Nixon from contemporary regimental paylists (etc) held by the National Archives. I don't know whether he is still active and working on 1881. I hope so but it will have been difficult over the last couple of years.

Possibilities for his earlier service:

  • He was discharged without going on to pension, and his service records had subsequently been destroyed
  • He served under a different name
