Hello all, I am researching a soldier, Patrick Kearns who served in the 53rd Regt, 101st Bengal Europeans & 12 Regt & served throughout the Punjab Campaign & the Sepoy mutiny of 1857.

3. Is anybody out there? [1]
Hello all, This is my fourth attempt to gain information (or even acknowledgment) of my question posted on this list. I really only joined this list a few days ago in order to ask a specific query but those on this list seem more interested in bickering than sharing their knowledge (which I thought was the purpose of this discussion list). Therefore before I unsubscribe I'd like to ask this same question just once more in the vain hope there is someone out there with the information I need (see belo

5. Clarke [0.974932]
Win My husband's grandmother, Winifred Ella (nee Clarke) left us some handwritten notes about her ancestors. She had obviously been interested in tracing her roots. Part of it reads as follows: "My father's uncle, Mr.Thomas George Clarke, was magistrate at Madras in 1850 and died at Madras. The vault at St. Mary Cathedral R.C. in Armenian Street is still at the entrance of the Cathedral" So I wonder is there another Thomas Clarke mentioned in Monuments of Madras. I am not sure when he died but he

The 'chai wallah' The bisque fired earthenware cups were promptly smashed after drinking the contents ..... good hygiene ! I have a sudden recollection of a piece of rope which seemed to perpetually burn and from which people would light their beeries. Nice warm memories . Sally P.S I did not appreciate the monkeys which would invade the train especially when passing through Toonla ... also 'famous' for hordes of green parrots.

I am also reminded of my days in Bombay ( now Mumbai) in 1970s when I was living in area called Waudby Road. Best value for money was my regular dinner at Churchgate Railway station, where the canteen was on the first floor and "thali" (one meal, vegetarian) was the best choice.

Shirley They are a breakfast speciality and are especially popular with stale curry or yesterday's dinner. Some have them with fried eggs and bacon. They are even good with cheeses & jams.They are set aside for Sunday breakfast unless you lived close to the baker who makes them then you can have them anyday. I usually fried them again to get the lardly taste out and to get a few flakes a wee bit crispy. The man does not come around anymore.

Does anybody know if records from the above church are available to be searched please. My late father in law and his brother were baptised there, and I'm hoping to find a marriage for their parents at the same church. The surname was KIRSCHNER. The marriage would have been around 1900-1905. TIA Pauline Kirschner Victoria, Australia --- Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free.

On the Hippie trail in the early 1980's through Afghanistan and Pakistan into India I got a really nasty tummy bug, which turned out eventually to be dysentry. For several weeks I was in severe problems, and found that about the only food that would stay inside me, or that I could face was chai and biscuits. I also remember ending up ankle deep in cast off sugar cane sticks in Rajastan, as all my fellow passengers desc
