One of his recollections of the Zulu War was the finding of the Prince Imperial after his party had been ambushed and assegaied.
"I remember" he said "that we rigged up a stretcher with a couple of lances and a blanket and then brought him into our camp on it"
From South Africa Wilkinson went with his Regiment to India serving at Mhow and Lucknow and completing the full period of 21 years.

He was born in Montreal in Canada in 1851. Mother was Johanna Wilkinson of Chelsea.
Joned 17th Lancers 3/7/1866 at the age of 15. he was F408 and a quarter inches.
He was a trumpeter from 24/7/73 to 31/3/76. Appointed Lance Corporal 3/2/77. Corporal 18/8/79, L/Serg 23/12/79 Serg 1/6/80, Band Serg 1/7/81

I accept the challange John

I will search the archive of every military bass and every medal roll for such a cymbal of courage.
I will dilligently hunt for the drum, stick to the challange and despite hidden snares along the way will not let it beat me.
