Quoting: Alan Wellbelove
I am trying to find more information on two deaths in india in the early 19th Century.
Edward Wellbeloved, died 20 Jan 1814, buried Bellary, Madras.
George Welbelove, died 16 Jul 1822, buried 16 Jul 1822, Masulipatam, Madras. Age 30.
Iím interested whether they were servicemen, and if they died in combat, or from illness.
I have tried searching the internet, but can find no further inormation.
There is no record of them serving in the Military in India.
It must be accepted as a principle that the rifle, effective as it is, cannot replace the devastation produced on the enemy by the speed of the horse, the magnetism of the charge, and the terror of cold steel. - British Army Cavalry training manual 1907
