Octavius Graham Coldham Hacon, 1833-1855, was born in Hackney, London.
Died in Nasirabad, India, (modern day Bangladesh).
Served in the Indian Army as an Ensign under the auspices of the Honorable East India Company.
Can any forum member please help or guide me in discovering more about his service and which Indian Native Infantry Regiment he served in.

Normally would access "Find my past" via local library but had eye operation on Wednesday, (4th time lucky) and will have to wait.
