Regiment Name

Sat Nov 03, 2012 2:58 pm

I have looked up my Great Granfather, Walter Haywood Smith, on the 1911 census and have found him on an arm list in the district of Ceylon and India but I can't read the regiment name, page 1 of this volume mention the Royal Engineers. It looks like:

R. War. R.

Can anyone help?

according to military records on ancestry he was in The Royal Warwickshire Regiment, hence R War R.
