|24th March 2005||ARCHIBALD BEVERIDGE - BRITISH ARMY|
By Margaret Sparks
I have been told my grandfather lost a leg in a battle in India in the late 1890s but I have exhausted my search to try and confirm this. He was from Burnley, Lancashire. I am in Australia and resources are scarce. Can anyone help? Many thanks

Has this anything to do with the Anglo-Zulu war?
Go the the National Archives website - all surviving records are held at Kew - on paper NOT available on-line. Click on 'Getting Started' - you can then employ the staff at Kew under the Freedom of Information act - cost £1 per minute or choose from the list of independent military researchers. Good luck.
