About Edward Holman

Edward Holman was the son of a soldier and, at the end of 1840, joined his father’s regiment, The Royal Corps of Sappers & Miners, as a bugler. He was then just 10 years old. He based at the Royal Engineer depot at Woolwich for much of his career, during which he rose to the rank of sergeant. During the Indian Mutiny of 1857, he was to India where he took part in the Relief of Lucknow. He was wounded by a musket ball which shattered his right elbow and he had to have his arm amputated. Discharged from the army as unfit for further service, he was appointed band and drillmaster at the Redhill Farm School. He also acted as a clerk for the Society.
