I suspect he was still looking for a role after disgrace in Madras.  It would be very strange to find two men with the same surname and three initials.
Thanks very much for the pocket history.

Thanks for that.  I had seen an entry with less detail, but with correct spelling: ...lie at the end.  Do you have access to any more detail? 
Just noticed what a short time he served!

He was no Lord, but that could be my man.  Someone of his name is on Ancestry, US version, in a list of US Civil War soldiers, but I have only the UK version.  I wonder...

The link did not work but you are right, 1861, not 1859.

A relative was a cadet in the army in India in 1859 and evidently cashiered that year.  I found a brief note via the Indiafamilies website.
He was in trouble again after his return to England, but I have not found the reason for that sentence.  Any thoughts about sources?
His surname was the one I use as my signature.
