Tom Henry martin was born in Boston, Lincolnshire in 1845
He appears in the 1861 census still living in Boston as a 16 year old.
At this point he disappears from all UK records. However I have found the following entry in family search:
name: Tom Henry Martin
burial date: 18 May 1878
burial place: Toungoo, Burma, Bengal, India
death date: 18 May 1878
birth date: 1845
occupation: Color Sergt H.M. 44th Reg
marital status: Unknown
I'd very much appreciate it if any one had any information as to what regiment he could have been in, why were they in Burma! and any other pertinent information.
Also, could anybody point me in the best direction for further research such as the National Archives.
Any help will be gratefully received.
