…. Gordon 9th Lancers.

William C Gordon joined the 9th Lancers as a Cadet [?] on 13th February 1852. Still in the rank of Cadet [?] he resigned on 4th Oct. 1954. I have found no other reference to him in the Regimental History.

There also appears in the Regimental History the name of Brig. Genl. J.R.P. Gordon – though not a 9th Lancer.
He commanded the 3rd Cavalry Brigade which was formed in February 1900 & consisted of:-
9th Lancers
