Notes for Alexander NICHOLSON
Shortly after his arrival in India he met with John.

"On Nov 1st he met his brother Alexander at Dhaka: both were delighted but their joy was short-lived. Alexander went ahead with his regiment and two days later, Nov 3rd John, while riding through the Khyber Pass, saw a naked body lying some distance off the line of march. Against orders he left the column with a friend and galloped off to inspect it, to find, stripped of clothing and mutilated in distinctive Afghan fashion, the corpse of his brother Alexander. John was at least able to assure his mother that Alexander had been buried by a Church of England clergyman, a privilege enjoyed by very few who died in the course of duty in those desolate parts." - The Irish Sword
