Have just found a reference for a John Foot born about 1845 joining the 24 Regt/ 1st Battalion in 1860 from the Royal Military Asylum, Chelsea.

Does anyone have knowledge of this John Foot(e).

He also had a brother Andrew Foot(e) born abt 1843 who joined the 47th Regiment in 1858, again from the Royal Military Asylum, Chelsea.

Hi Rayden .
This may be your man , from the Medal Roll by Forsyth .
2 / 24th Regt . Drum Major , J.P. Foote . 2188 , Entitled to Medal with 77-78-79 Clasp.

I then looked through ' The Noble 24th ' by Norman Holme .
Basically says the same , but gives his christian name as John .P. Foote , Also states he is entitled to ' Long Service And Good Conduct Medal 1 / 7 / 79.
Hope this has been some help .
cheers 90th. Idea

Thanks both

I do have that information - now frustrated that I can't find anymore. Nothing on UK census (to present) so assume they either died overseas ot stayed overseas.

Anyway off for a holiday in the nest few days (4 weeks in Spain) so will have to leave this till I get back
