Army Trial 1900
« on: Monday 20 May 19 13:01 BST (UK) »
I just discovered in some army pension records My husbands Grandfather who was in the Royal Horse Artillery was first imprisoned by CO in April  then Awaiting trial then tried and imprisoned in May 1900 but then back on duty in July 1900.  Will there be any records of the trial and what he was charged with? 

Also he went to India in 1901 and returned 1902 would he have received a medal for this?  We have his medals from WW1 but no other medals

Many thanks

Depending on how long and where he served, he might have been entitled to the India Medal

If you have his service record it will be on his conduct sheet.  Would you like to give his name?

Be aware that a CO could try a man summarily (ie not at a court martial) and impose sentences of up to 90 days imprisonment (in serious cases).  Records of summary hearings will not appear in the central records.

Dorothy

Are you sure that his record doesn't have any clue to what his offence may have been?  Are there entries preceding the ones that you quote recording perhaps absence or an offence under civil law (which is an offence itself under military law).

What battery was he in when he went to India, this may tell us what he was likely to have been involved in.
