What Regiment please?
« on: Friday 15 January 21 16:14 GMT (UK) »
Thomas BEGBY (BEGLY, BEGBIE, BUGBY) South Africa 1814..................

He is listed on his daughter Clara's marriage certificate as a soldier, but deceased by 1847. What REGIMENT would he likely have been part of? Possibly a Scottish Regiment but I'd love to know please. Thanks!

Hello Feral566,

Please would you only post a topic once as other members may not be aware that an answer may possibly be on a different duplicate topic. If you have posted and after a few days you have not had a reply or answer you require you can simply request for the topic to be moved to a different board if you wish, that way keeping all the research together for any new readers to read.

To move a topic simply click on the "report to moderator button" and say where you want your post moving to ;)

Regards

Sarah

The 1st Battalion 72nd Seaforth Highlanders were stationed in Cape Town in 1814/15 if that is of any use to you.

Hi Sarah, oh sorry I didn't realise that! I will do that in the future, thank you!

Hi Pogo, thanks I'll look into that. Thought it might be a Scottish regiment but wasn't sure.
