Hello,

I am looking for information on my grandfather John Lawson Whyte (I82397) who was an officer with the HLI during WW2. He served in North Africa, Italy and France. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

HLI Boxing Champion for identification

I have been lent a family album, unfortunately with little information about the photographs.  There are several pictures of soldiers that are obviously from Scotland and I attach a photograph of a boxing champion who I think could be from the HLI given the 74 and elephant on his belt.  I suspect from around the 1920,s but no evidence, can anyone confirm that this boxer is from the HLI and possibly suggest an identity, names could be Kerr (Andrew?), Hewley or Stoneham but could be someone else.

It is also possible that this is in India or similar there are other photographs with soldiers wearing shorts and solar topis.

I am carrying out some Family History research for a mate of mine who's Grandfather is Archibald Kenneth MaClean who was a 2nd Lieutenant in the 4th Battalion HLI but attached to the 2nd Battalion during WW1.  His medal roll card and the London Gazette of 15th February 1919 confirm that he was awarded the Military Cross.  As much as i've tried I cannot discover what were the circumstances leading to the receipt of this medal.  Could anyone assist me or point me in the right direction we would be very grateful.

 

Regards

 

Dave
