Rifle Brigade and Boxing 1890's

Postby nicky18 » Sun Nov 02, 2008 5:00 am

My great grandfather is missing from the 1891 census but on his marriage certificate it states he was a soldier in the Rifle Brigade. I also know from a newspaper cutting that he won a boxing belt whilst with the rifle brigade. Also in 1908 he fought Tommy Burns, boxing world champion, in an exhibition fight in Bristol. I'm now at a bit of a dead end. Can anyone tell me where I might look for some more information either on the boxing or rifle brigade. Many thanks Nicky
