Description

He was born at Willesden, London in 1838 and was a labourer upon his joining the 33rd Regiment at Marylebone on 19 January 1858. Having served with the Regiment in India and Abyssinia, he was medically discharged in November 1877, his name having appeared in the Defaulters Book no less than 36 times and having been convicted for drunkenness by Court Martial. It is interesting to note that Titchener was sent to the 76th Regiment for his Medical Board, further early examples of the links between the 33rd and 76th, with copied research.
