PostSubject: Bromhead loses his right arm?   Sat Nov 09, 2013 1:12 am

Hi all

I have come across an article which states Bromhead loses his right arm in action.

My question is did Charles Bromhead lose his arm as I do not think it was Gonville?

Hi Andy.
This officer is neither Charles or Gonville, but another branch of the family however the names escapes me at present and my army list is not handy at present.
