2nd Bn, Wiltshire Regiment - Three colour photos of a cemetery in Jhansi in India which contains a memorial which includes the names of two Bandsmen of the Battalion who are buried there having died in October 1892 and January 1893. They are Privates H Rixon, who died on 14.10.1892, and Private M Simpkins, who died on the 25th January following. The memorial stone lists the names of soldiers from other Regiments who are also buried there. The person who took the photos while visiting Inida in November 2008 did not find/photograph the actual gravestones though a number of them are visible in one of the photographs.
