Born in Colchester on 11 January, 1838 Tyssen Sowley Holroyd
first petitioned for the purchase of a commission in Her Majesty's
Army at the age of 14 on 9 August, 1852. The petition was written
on his behalf by his father James John Holroyd, the Rector of
Abberton. Tyssen's purchase of the rank of
Ensign in the 34th
Regiment of Foot was granted for a sum of £450 by the
Commander in Chief on 12 January, 1855. Less than six months
later on 8 June, 1855 he was promoted to a lieutenancy in the
same regiment.

Later in 1855 Holroyd was with his regiment in the Crimea where
he took part in the siege and taking of Sebastopol and the assault
on the Redan on 8 September, 1855.

During the Indian Mutiny (1857-58) Lieutenant Holroyd, while
with the Gwalior Contingent, was wounded during actions of 26,27
& 28 November at Cawnpore . He took part in the capture of
Meangunge, the siege and fall of Lucknow, the relief of Azimgur
and the defeat of rebels by Sir R. Kelly in Nepal.

This recently acquired CDV photograph shows
Charles Gordon Creyk an
d he was identified as being
a member of the 2nd West India Regiment. As usual
I began to do some preliminary research prior to
posting the image here and I s
oon found out that
Creyk had been a member of the 2nd Battalion, 24th
Regiment of Foot prior to transferring to the 2/West
India. Never having heard of a Lt. Creyk serving
with the 24th during the Anglo-Zulu War I began to
look a bit further through my sources and found the
following:

Alexander and Sarah Creyk.

unique distinction of having
the word "Royal" used twice
in its title.
