6th Warwickshire regt. Black mountain expedition 1868

Postby Fathertime » 31 Oct 2017 14:04

I am researching a Pte in the 6th Warwicks, who served in the "Hazara" (on his record) campaign of 1868. I am sure they are referring to the 2nd Black mountain expedition. Can anyone direct me to a good reference for the 6th of foot's involvement in the campaign? I did read some regiments marched 600 miles in 29 days to get up there. Was the 6th of foot one of those regiments? Brother, that is a lot of road marching!

For some general references, see the FIBIS Fibiwiki page Black Mountain Expedition 1868

Within the online books mentioned on the Fibiwiki page, there may be specific references to the 6th Regiment of Foot's involvement.
