Hi My name is Toby Maudsley and I am researching a sergant Thomas Green who was in the Border regiment between 1896 and ended as a colour servant on the permanent staff in carlisle in 1904 he was in Quetta ,Baerilly ,lahore and Thayet Mayo in Burma . I am running into lots of dead ends trying to find his number . I am hoping, when I have eventually found this I might be able to garner some information about exactly where he was between 1897 and 1904 and precisely when . Does anyone know where the 2nd battalion border regiment was in those years or where I can look ? I have birth certificates of three of his kids which tell me his place of abode and his rank when they were born ,can anyone suggest where to look . I have spent a long time at the british Library and am returning to Kew this week to look for anything I might find there . Any info on where the 2nd Battalion were stationed would be great. Thanks . Oh I think he may have had something to do with a POW camp at Shahjapur as a relative has a picture drawn by a boer in a pow camp and presented to him by a srgnt P.Hollick ......Any tips very gratefully received
All the best
Toby Maudsley

Toby, if his army number was 2279 and he married Mary Ellen Goodwin then his service record is available on the Findmypast web site.
