Carol, I cannot see your photo and as far as I am aware you cannot attach photos to the
You can however attach photos to Rootsweb Message Boards, such as the India Message Board,
or the British Army Message Board.
Depending on how old he appears in the photo you could also post on the Victorian Wars
or the Great War Forum, http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums/
where you would probably get a better response.

I am currently doing some research into my cousin's father's family,
which she knows very little about. I have found a number of family
details from Heritage and Ancestry websites but I have found no
information about what regiment her grandfather might have served
in. I have added a photo of him in uniform and if anyone can shed
any light on it I would be very grateful to receive it.
He is Charles Alexander Lakin Wheeler, born 5/11/1886 and christened
on 30/12/1886 in Bangalore, Madras. He died in November 1964 in
Chatham, Kent, England. I am assuming that the family moved to
England at the end of British rule in India.
I have been very interested to do this research as when I knew her
father back in the 1960/70s I had no idea he had been born in India.
I now know a lot more about British rule in India and Indian history.
