Would he have spent 14 years in India. Seems along time to be stationed in one place.

Hi Mr Greaves

I have to agree with you, 14 years is a long time in one country.

The other interesting thing about his Service is that he joined the Service in Jan 1879 and only a month later (51 days), he was sent on Active service in a foreign land.
He did not return home until 15 years later in December 1893.
