Hi, I wonder if any of you listers can help me with a myth or family
legend regarding my Grandfather who served with the Royal Horse
Artillery in India from approx 1897 until 1904/5.
The story goes that my Grandfather who was a Farrier with this Regiment
travelled from India to China via the Gobi Desert. My late cousin was
convinced there was a grain of truth in this as one of the "Sunday's"
published a small article on this feat many years ago. Unfortunately,
this was prior to the Net so it was extremely difficult for him to
undertake any further research.
Several years later my cousin came across a fellow whose Grandfather had
travelled with such a party as a Suttler.
Does anyone out there have any info or perhaps point me in the right
