In Reply to: Crimean War- Henry Dugdale of Newcastle Upon Tyne, England by christy ahleman of 361

If he was discharged from the army to pension his service records should be at the National Archive, Kew. In document piece WO97/1282
WO97 = Royal Hospital Chelsea: Soldiers Service Documents; 1282 = Cavalry of the Line: Davi - Dys 1855-1872

See my posting re Henry Cheshire for more information about obtaining records, but in your case there is a risk he may not have received a pension in which case you will need to consult the regiments muster books etc to obtain his details of his service, which would tend more towards using a research company. Having said that if he's the same Henry Dugdale army pensioner, age 61, b Marsdon, Lancashire listed in the 1881 Census in Byker, Northumberland, with his Newcastle born wife and family you should be ok.
