I confess I am lost with Indian Army commissions. I have been trying to research a man who joined the ADRIC (Irish Auxiliary Police) in 1921, but apart from Indian Army all I have is "J Boyle"
My research so far - click link for MIC and notes
- has got his MIC and a few LG entries. The MIC does not give his Christian name, nor any previous service
1917 Aug 30. Lands in France
1918 Jan 12. 1st Bn., 55th Coke's Rifles. Lieut. J. Boyle, I.A.R.O., attd., to be actg. Capt. while comdg. a Coy. From 12th to 30th Jan. 1918
1919 Jul 3. Indian Army Reserve of Officers. Lieutenants to be Captains. J. Boyle.
1921 Feb 16 Joined ADRIC with service no 1687. posted Platoon Commander in J Coy and A/CQM
His MIC mentions 110 Mahratta L I as well.
I cannot find his commission, mainly as I do not know his Christian name. I suspect that he was commissioned from the ranks - the single initial.
Can anyone who knows about Indian Army get me any further?
