I would be interested to know if anyone has information or can suggest
how I can find information about Surgeon Major John WOOD, born Jedburgh
Scotland, who was in India with his wife Marjorie Maxwell ORMISTON from
about 1846 to at least 1857. I understand he was based at Simla and was
in Delhi with the 38th Regiment at the time of the Sepoy rebellion.
The story of their escape from Delhi was well chronicled in the Times
and is also mentioned in the book "Angels of Albion", recently published
by Jane Robinson.
The WOODs migrated to New Zealand in 1862.
I would appreciate help in researching his service in India. Any
suggestions would be most welcome.
