British army barracks in Lucknow

by dereksandie Online Now Oct 5, 2010 at 3:01 AM

We are trying to get details of my grandfathers Army time in Lucknow in world war One.
He was in the Middlesex reg. 10th Battalion which was stationed in Lucknow. My wife and I are coming to Lucknow next month OCTOBER2010 and would apprciate and help in where to go to get information and to try and find his barracks etc.
I do have his pass book which shows areas he was NOT allowed to go in. Hope it's a bit better 100years on !!!!!!
I'm sure we will have a great time in Lucknow and would appreciate details

Cheers Dereksandie
