George Alfred Benjamin WILSON-FORSTER-RYTON was in the British Army,

Further to the message from Brinds regarding Mary HULLOCK's burial in South
Park Street Cemetery-(1804-1836)
Her grave # was SP461 - however there is no longer any standing tomb.
Thought that you might be interested to know though that there is a burial of
another person also in the same grave # - a John Luscombe WOOD ( _ - 1835). Is
that a relative?

My daughter flew to Mumbai last night. The plane, expected at 12 pm,
arrived at 2. She was driven to the ITT where she is going to teach
French. She describes scenes of desolation. Now I heard the airport had
been closed again. At the ITT, there was nobody to show her around, and
no meal provided for the whole day. People are all disorganized.

Thanks for letting us know that "The River" is now available in DVD
I have seen the film twice - once back in the 60's when it made a
impression on me & again more recently when I had to drive to a
"specialty" video store in Vancouver in order to rent a copy.
In spite of the poor quality of the earlier versions I agree with
said by the reviewer of the DVD.
Now we just have to hope that it will be available in N.America.

My son Tony, travelling in India on business, was caught in Mumbai
during this awful rain storm and flooding.
He described the scene to me on the telephone. Streets full of
floating dead cattle and some bodies. He managed, with the help of
other young Indian businessmen, to get a seat on the last plane out of
Mumbai. If not, his whole schedule of appointments down the line in
Delhi and Kolkata would have been fouled up.
He called again from Delhi yesterday. He was on a day excursion to the
Taj and on arrival in Agra the whole place had been shut down. He did
not know why, but the group did not get to see the Taj after all. Even
the shops were closed in the vicinity.
It is horrible to think of what people in Mumbai have endured.

Thanks Kerry for the information. My paternal cousin, Patricia Walters,
played the part of Harriet, the young British girl.
I will send her a copy of the above.
I'm re-subscribing briefly (i.e. this message only) as a result of the sad
news of Maria. I had a number of conversations with her, and latterly she
contributed some photographs to be published on the indian-cemeteries.org
site. Unfortunately as a result of the backlog of submissions I did not put
them up immediately. I have now done so. They are some general views of
the Taxali Gate Cemetery, Lahore. She will be greatly missed by the Indian
family history community. Many thanks Maria.
I have also added 3 cemeteries from Murree:
1. Old Cemetery;
2. Pindi Point Cemetery;
3. Cliffden Road Cemetery.
Grateful thanks to Dr Ali Jan - Sarhad Conservation Network - for these.

I would love to ride on the train, as my father and his siblings did when
they went to school. It sounds a wonderful journey. An aunt told me that, at
one of the stations, monkeys would jump on board.
Thought this may be of interest to listers.

I would like to echo Pamela from Melbourne's thoughts re the wonderful help the list gives to us. Over a few years, I have been able to find quite a few of my Clarke rellies, and because of the great help of several list members, whom I have written to personally, I have been able to find the Army records of my George CLARKE.
Well, I think it's him, the records of the George CLARKE I have found at Kew are identical with what I know of my George's life. The birth year is within the 5 year period usually allowed (1836) The regiment is the same, R.A., he was at Woolwich in 1867, when the only one of his children born in England came along. Discharge date 1875, when my George left to join the railway.
I have a death record of a George CLARKE, in 1912, Calcutta, he was a Govt. Pensioner, late Inspector of Police, Railway, which ties in with my George. So I do hope all these records belong to my husband's g.g/f.
Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for being a great list, helpful and informative, with interesting discussions.
I'm going away for two months, adventuring with my husband in south Australia, but will look forward to resubscribing in Oct.
Many thanks and

Charlie, Thanks for the refund. It was a little confusing at first since I
have never received money from Paypal before but it all worked out and I will
receive your refund to me in about 2 weeks. Glad to know you are happily
settled in Scotland. Many thanks for all that you did for me. Best wishes Joy
I don't know if this is of any use to you but there is a page on my
website which is a list of soldiers who enlisted in the AIF who gave their
birthplace as India, Burma or Ceylon. The page is at
The AIF was the Australian Imperial Force and was raised to serve
overseas during World War One. Looking at the page, I now realise that I
haven't completed all the unit details or ranks, but you will be able to
find name, place of birth, next of kin, and so on.

Rowland Fawcett Liddell Farrer died on 31 May 1889 (aged 29) in Fyzabad. He
was a captain in the 2nd Battalion Liverpool Regiment. Could anyone tell me
anything of this regiment at this time and what may have caused his death,
or where I could go for more information? Many thanks for any
