After training, he was posted to Malta, where he served until February 1873.He then served at Gibraltar - from February 1873 until May 1876, when he was posted back to the UK. He was posted to South Africa a few months later and served there for over three years with the Buffs – the East Kent Regiment. Following other overseas postings (including China and Egypt) he returned to the UK in April 1886, where he remained until being discharged on the 21st February 1888, having served over 21 years."
