After my previous attempts to find my grandfather's records at Kew, I realised that when my mother was born in 1913 his occupation on the birth certificate was given as "army pensioner". Soldiers discharged to pension are to be found in a different part of the archive and I was able to find his army record up to the early years of the twntieth century when he left the army. He was, at that time in India, and as far as I can see he remained there and may have become a manager in a hill station called Dalhousie (named after a British army officer and member, I think, of the aristocracy). Between then and the birth of my mother in 1913 in Dorset I am not sure what happened to him and I have a large number of other blank years between then and the mid to late 1930s. I know that he moved to Scotland and re-married (and married a third - well actually fourth - time). I know he bred bulldogs. I know he rose to the rank of Captain during his service in the first world war. There are losts of little bits of information. I know he was born in Belfast now and also have the address where his father and mother lived and the names of his siblings. I really want to find out more about his family and could go to Belfast to see what I can find out. Then there are the Dorset, London (especially Lambeth) connections which I can follow up. [I am chasing up the Scottish side of things with some success]. Does anyone have any advice as to the best way to proceed?
