My relative was with the 1st Batt of the Manchester Regiment ( formerly the 63rd of Foot). They arrived in Ismailia from Bombay on the 6th of September 1882 and shipped out again from Alexandria on the 23rd of October back to Portsmouth. As the Battle of Tel-El -Kebir was fought out of Ismailia on September 13th I presumed that the 1st Batt of the Manchesters were there as they had been accompanied from India by the 1st Seaforth Highlanders who are regularly referenced.
My difficulty is I recently saw a listing of all the British Regiments involved in the Battle on a website but the Manchester Regiment is not included.
Does anyone have any information on this Regiment in the Egypt War please?
