35621st Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders - 12 April 1913 Dinapore, India
- Oct 26, 2008Hi,
A 1st cousin twice removed, Corporal David Simpkins No 310 died at
Dinapore on 12 April 1913 of syncope, age 24 years 11 months [actually
25 years 10 days, also I understand that syncope is fainting].
The informants on 15 April 1913 at Dinapore were Cr Sgt J Gilmour &
Capt J C Scott, Adjutant.
Can I assume that being in the 1st that David was a regular?
There doesn't seem to be much available at the National Archives for
someone like David who wasn't in WWI and wasn't discharged & the
regimental web sites don't have anything about the locations/movements
of the 1st in the past that I can see.
He appears in the 1891 census in Edinburgh as a 3 year old in the
family home but although his mother & 2 younger siblings are in the
1901 census there is no sign of him in Scotland or England. Might he
have already enlisted?
Any suggestions or information please?
