Robert Campbell b.1857-1859 Antrim Artillery Militia
« on: Saturday 31 March 18 23:00 BST (UK) »
I have tracked down my ancestor Robert Campbell's military history in the Scots Guards and in the attestation when he enlisted in Glasgow in 1877 it shows he was initially enlisted in the Antrim Artillery Militia. He was about 18 years old at the time of joining the Scots Guards. Can anyone help me locate the Antrim Militia records as I am hoping it might give a clue as to his birth place and parents. Thank you.
