No: 1749- Rank: Sgt- Name: William Williams

I have just found the original parchment certificate of discharge re the above who was discharged on 6/10/1896. He was my great grandfather and I can just make out that he received the Soudan medal, clasps El Teb (??),Tamaai, Nile 1884-5, Khedives star, good conduct medal - approx description due to faded writing.There's also a photo of him in uniform. Needless to say I have none of these medals etc!! I am researching the family history now though and have trailed him from Tipperary to York then Hounslow so far but there are great gaps of course. Any idea where I could get his service record from as it's so old.
