Armed Forces / Unidentified uniform.
« on: Tuesday 17 October 06 14:21 BST (UK)  »
I believe this is a photo of my grandmother's favourite brother, as I know he spent some time in India. Please can anyone identify the uniform for me? Sorry there's not much to go on. Thanks

Yes, I was right, it is now St Andrew's.

That's a USA Northampton!
     Possibly the UK Northampton asylum was what is now St Andrew's hospital.
 There was also a privately run asylum in what is now Abington Park Museum

To go back a bit, what is the connection with 'St John the Baptist Peterborough', if she was married etc in Rushden? I know P'boro is in Northants, but only technically. It was until comparatively recently the Soke of Peterborough, which was like a mini-county of its own, and it is really more like East Anglia. Within my lifetime, the C of E created a diocese of Brixworth (a very ancient church near Northampton) with its own bishop, to serve the west of the county.
