Given the photograph from Isandula’s Collection, posted in the side bar, I wondered if anyone had any further information on him?

I have a couple of photographs of him taken in later life.

Here he is as a Sergeant, taken in Rangoon, then Burma circa 1885/6 wearing the undress doublet.

Sgt. A. S. Binnie, RSF.
(John Young Collection.)

Subsequent photographs and correspondence indicate that he might have settled for a while in South Africa following his Army service.

Anything further information would be appreciated.

Rai,

Thanks for that. Most helpful.

The odd thing is apart from his military service that there is no further connection to South Africa. Where I have a couple of envelopes and another cdv of him linked to Kimberley, I can only conclude a possible family connection.

Keep up the good work.

All the best,

JY

Hello John
Had a look for a south african connection.
Another Alexander Binnie also from Falkirk born circa 1867, was attested 24 april 1885 to the seaforth highlanders he served in the Hazara campaign 1891 and returned to the colours for the 2nd Boer War.
Considering the place and name i would think they were probably related it seems there are three families with lots of Alexanders in the area.

Rai,

Thanks again.

Frank,

Yes I found those the other night when I was poking around in the SA National Archives, trying find a connection.

Barry,

Those Jocks get everywhere! Thanks for the information.

Just in case they're of any interest I have photos of a further CDV of A. Binnie, this time by James Lloyd of Natal; also included is a handwritten card dated May 30th 1880 with the following words:

Corpl A S Binnie
Royal Scots Fusiliers
Pretoria, Transvaal
South Africa

To:
Miss E Imrie
Church Place
Cistern Lane
Falkirk
Scotland


I'll ask Admin to post the photos shortly.

Regards,

Tim
