Captain Robert Smith Ceylon Rifle Regiment
Posted by: John Schlosser (ID *****3290) Date: June 02, 2008 at 18:50:52

Looking for any record of the death/burial in Ceylon/Sri Lanka of my g-g-grandfather, Captain Robert Smith (b. 1826, Co. Limerick, Ireland) of the Ceylon Rifle Regiment. He joined this regiment in 1867, coming off half pay after serving 1858-1866 in India with the 97th Regiment. It is believed he died in 1868. What is known for certain is that he never returned to England.

Any assistance in solving the mystery of Captain Smith's death and place of burial would be greatly appreciated.
