James Haselden, Lancs Fusilier 1881-1893
IP: 129.83.31.3


I’m interested in learning more about my relative, James Haselden, who was a Lancashire Fusilier from 25 July 1881 to 24 July 1893 (Service Number 136). According to his personnel record, he was at the following locations on the dates indicated:
Bury – 25 Jul 1881
Cork – 28 Sep 1881
Templemore – 27 Jan 1882
Arrived(?) East Indies – 29 Mar 1882
Mhow – 3 Apr 1882
Asirgarh – 10 Oct 1882
Mhow – 13 Feb 1883
Neerisuck(?) – 20 Nov 1884
Nusseerabad – 1 Jan 1886
Nasirabad – 22 Oct 1887 (presume this is the same as “Nusseerabad” in the prior entry)
G. hagar(?) – 7 Feb 1888
HMS Malabar – 3 Nov 1888

He clearly served in the 2nd Battalion given his service in India (Mhow, Asirgarh etc) but I’d appreciate any info on why he’d be in Ireland in late 1881 thru early 1882, as well as any ideas for the 2 locations I can’t accurately transcribe (indicated by “(?)” in the above list).

Also, are there any books that would provide more insights into his service?

Many thanks,
Mark
