Welch regiment, India post WW1
« on: Monday 08 July 19 20:07 BST (UK) »
I've just received the military records of a distant relative. I was doing the research on behalf of his son who is 82 and lives in Canada.

His son was particularly interested in his fathers service in India. Unfortunately the records only confirm that he did serve in India with the Welch Regiment between August 1919 and March 1922. It doesn't state where in India he served. Wikipedia states that it was the 1st battalion of the Welch regiment who were in India at that time and indeed his records show that he was in the 1st battalion.

Does anyone know exactly where in India that the Welch Regiment was stationed between those dates? I'd be grateful and an old man would be very happy to find out more about his dad.

Thanks
