I am searching for information regarding the 17th Lancers as well as the 12th and 16th. What would the term being 'attached to the 12th and 16th lancers mean?
Is it likely that an officer would go from one unit to the next i.e from the 12th to the 16th to the 17th lancers and the Army Veterinary Corps? All these queries are related to my Great Great Great Grandfather, Charles Steel.
Do you have a Charles Steel in your lists for the 17th Lancers? Do have any other officer information, regarding Charles Steel, like his service record or could you suggest the best sources for finding more info or even a photo of Charles Steel? He was born in 1829 and served in the battle at Sevastopol. He was awarded a Turkish medal with clasp. He lived to be 80, dying in London in 1909. He had at least one child Called Edwin Bedford Steel who died in 1914 in the First World War in France.
