Jeremiah Maloney: Northamptonshire Regiment

Recommended Posts

Guest Toni Abram

Hello

I have not been here before, so  hope it is okay to post the following.

A relative in Australia has recently given me a photo of a man I believe to be Jeremiah/Jirimiah Maloney of Northamptonshire. I have posted the photo below and hopefully you will be able to see this.

120924100_10224116197914045_2821501427794747910_o.jpg?_nc_cat=100&_nc_sid=b9115d&_nc_ohc=pxMWrWo2KY8AX_H8qSn&_nc_ht=scontent.flhr2-2.fna&oh=8054e19f3fe75f3bad6214a63329955e&oe=5FA61A7D

I believe the badge on the turban is that of the Northamptonshire Regiment and having done some digging, I believe that the information below relates to the man in the photo. He appears to have served in the 3rd Northamptonshire battalion in 1902, being sent to South Africa and previously in the fourth battalion? I understand that both were part-time (reserve) regiments, so he would have still been able to do his regular job.

If there is anyone here who can help me learn more about Jeremiah, where and why the photo might have been taken or the regiment, I would very much love to here from you.

Well, you or someone else has done a bit of research into this.  I would say that this would have been taken while in service while serving in the Northwest Frontier Provence (modern day Pakistan)  Hence the Turbin hat being worn.  This is an extremely well preserved photograph from this period.  Thanks for sharing.  Unfortunately, I don't know if anything else could be added.   You have seemed to source the British Military records quite extensively.  Perhaps figuring out what commendations he would have earned?  The Aiguillette on the shoulder is likely a golden color as per the regulations found on Wikipedia.

Great photo and great bit of research.
