Private RMLI - 1881.. Completed with thanks.
« on: Monday 14 November 05 15:33 GMT (UK) »
I've a "possible" ancestor, shown on the 1881 census at " Hospital Barracks & Hospital" Walmer Kent.  The 1871 census shows him at Royal Marine Barracks. Walmer. Kent, details: Private R. In: ( don't know what that means) 1891 census shows him as a Pensioned Soldier. Would anyone have any idea what service he may have seen, I'm stumped  ???  Lyn

Hi Lyn

If memory serves me right RMLI stands for Royal Marines Light Infantry.

Hope this is of use

Happy Hunting

Hi Chris.  Sorry I didn't make my question very clear. I knew what the RMLI stood for, I just wondered if anyone had any idea where the RMLI would have served in those years.
