Hi All,
I came across this photograph of C. Wilkieson R.E. I do not know how to track down the name to see if he was involved in the Zulu war, but his uniform certainly looks like the period. If anyone has a list could they please cross reference the name as I do not know where to start. If the photo does relate to the Anglo Zulu war then could someone point me in the right direction as I would want to donate this so it is preserved for future generations.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

There is a Rosamund Wilkieson on the 1881 census living at 25 Gay St. Bath who is described as a widow living on a government pension (may mean her husband was killed in HM Forces). Her son Claude W Wilkieson is also living there aged 18 and is a 2nd Lieut. in the Middx. Militia.

There is also a Capt. /Brevet Major C B Wilkieson RE on the Burma medal role for 1887.

Could be connections.

It is an unusual surname, but from LH's info, clearly not the husband of the lady in Bath.

Going back to the original photo, is it possible to determine if the man in the photo is an officer, or if he is wearing a RE uniform? Is it the uniform of a cadet at the Royal Military College?

To me, it does not look like the kind of pose an officer back then would have adopted for a photograph!

Hi Lads,
Thanks for taking the time to look at the photo. Unfortunately I do not have any other information, I just thought it may have been from this period based on the uniform. It would be nice to see faces assigned to all the names of those involved.
cheers again
