Captain D'Arcy Symonds, Superintendent of Police, and Commandant of Malacca, comes from a family which has for man}7 generations been associated with the services. He is a son of the late General Symonds, a cousin of the late Admiral Sir Thomas Symonds, K.C.B. (late Admiral of the Fleet), and was born on October 20, 1855, at Southsea. He wras educated at the Royal Navy School, New Cross, and at Victoria College, Jersey. In 1876 Captain D'Arcy Symonds joined the 5th Royal Irish Lancers, and in 1879 volunteered for service with the 17th Lancers in the Zulu War. He took part in the cavalry action at the battles of Erzenguyan and Ulundi, and received the medal and clasp. Subsequently he transferred to the 9th Lancers for service in the Afghan War, and served in India from 1880 till 1885. Two years later he received a commission in the 16th Lancers, and in 1887, was placed on the reserve list. He was then appointed to command the Gold Coast Civil Police, but resigned in 1890 upon being invalided home. He was appointed by the Secretary of State Assistant Superintendent of Police for Pinang in May, 1891. Captain D'Arcy Symonds is also Superintendent of the Fire Brigade, Coroner for the town of Malacca, and a Justice of the Peace.

I have found him agree

Listed on the Medal Roll as Lance Sergeant D.A. Symonds 17th Lancers as 90th pointed out.
