It really doesn't look like a churchwarden to me. Might it be his son of the same name born 1833, who was a trooper in 1st Life Guards for 23 years, and was awarded 5 Good Conduct stripes?

Hi Shaun,

Thank you for your interest.
I have a photo of his son Charles (1833-1890) in his Life Guards uniform.
I don't think there was good conduct stripes that far back but I might be wrong about that.
He did not serve overseas and probably never fired a shot in anger.
He did get a long service and good conduct medal.
He was a baker by trade and sits proudly on my tree.

Good conduct stripes were introduced in the British Army in 1836. Charles junior definitely had 5 of them.

I would welcome any information you may have on Charles Jnr., such as good conduct stripes etc.

The only information I have on Charles junior is from a quick read through his army file https://search.findmypast.co.uk/record?id=GBM%2FWO97%2F1762%2F180%2F001&parentid=GBM%2FWO97%2F1762%2F382818

I checked with the church in Coombe yesterday and they have no information about him at all.
I thought this was surprising as lots of churches have wooden boards with the names of wardens.
Hey ho.
