"John Higgott a native of Nantwich, Cheshire, was aged 23 years and described himself as a ‘Carpenter’ by trade when he enlisted for service with the British Army at Newcastle-under-Lyme on 2 November 1878. In total John served 10 years and 88 days, including service in South Africa where his papers confirm service during the ‘Zulu War’, followed by more than 8 years and 331 days service in India. At the time of his taking his discharge from the 2nd Battalion Royal Lancaster Regiment on 19 October 1888, he is shown as having held the appointment of ‘Pioneer’ in the regiment, in which capacity his trade was described as ‘Very Good’. His intended place of residence on discharge was ‘6 Pepper Street, Nantwich"
