|were from his son whose name is inscribed on the reverse of the card mount: "Henry Ward age 5 months & week."
That is the way it was written and I suppose the author meant 1 week by this.
Based upon the age of Henry when this photo was taken I made the assumption that he was born in Bermuda. After a
bit of searching I found a Henry St. J. Ward, born in Bermuda and living in Southwick, Durham with his parents in
1901. Regimental Birth Indices show Henry St. John Ward being born on Bermuda in 1884.
His father - John Ward - is listed as Sergeant-Major in the Royal Artillery. John Ward was born around 1853 in
Stafford, Staffordshire. In 1891 John Ward is listed as living in Bishop Wearmouth, Durham with the rank of Sergeant
in the Royal Artillery.
Henry Ward's wife named as Harriet C., was shown to have been born in the East Indies. Another son Arthur, was
born in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Based upon these localities Sergeant-Major John Ward may have served overseas posting in India and Canada in
addition to Bermuda. I have yet to have uncover any additional details of Ward's military career.
