Has anyone got any information whether Matthew Gossett held any previous staff appointments during his earlier service in India?

Thanks in anticipation,

JY

Thanks Ray, I had seen that.

I looking at the period after the Indian Mutiny up until the mid-1860's, to establish whether he was on the Staff of a local Brigadier.

24th,

No it jumps from Indian Mutiny with his regiment, the 54th, to being an aide-de-camp with Thesiger in the 9th Cape Frontier War.

Staff Group India, late 1850's/early 1860's. Lt. M.W. Gosset (spelling according to some sources) on the right.
