Could SKS with a sub to FMP please lookup Edward Broomfield born 1870, Northamptonshire in the Army records?I'm interested in where he was 1891-1895

The 1911 census says he is married 19 years, but I can't find any record. In 1891 he is in Hyde park Barracks with his future wife (Margaret Jones) living in Clerkenwell.

Thank in advance for any assistance.

It looks as if he was in Windsor and London for all of that time. He was invalided out in 1895 with varicose veins.

He had a scar on his right knee and mole on right chest.

Height 72 and 1/4 inches
Weight 161 pounds
Chest measurement 39 inches
3 vaccination marks on left arm.

Father's name Joseph.

SORRY - I'm not able to send the images.

Hi Kath.

Yes I've just found that one as well. Sadly doesn't seen to be in the London records.

I can see from other records that Harry Cosson married Edith Blyth. Can see nothing for George Edward Broomfield, so has to be a possible.

Thank you for looking. Appreciatred
