Granddad in India (Family Album 3)

1911 circa Grandad Mansell Delhi C 1st Bt Duke of Wellington’s 33rd Ft (The West Ridings)Family Album 3

Yesterday’s post was of my granddad on mum’s side (granddad Dunbar). Today’s post is of Granddad Mansell on my dad’s side. I never met him as he died in 1951, 7 years before I was born.

He spent quite some time in India with most of the service being along the North West Frontier (now Pakistan). He was born in 1889 to would have been 22 years old at the time of this photo. The map below shows the different places he was stationed at. These are taken from his military record.
