Boyd Robert Horsbrugh (1871-1916)

Boyd Robert Horsbrugh (1871-1916) Boyd Robert Horsbrugh (1871-1916) ‘… was an English ornithologist and military man…’

Boyd Horsbrugh was a friend of James John Garth Wilkinson and his name is in both of James John Garth Wilkinson‘s address books at the East India Service Club, and at 16 St. James’s Square, and he is also listed as Major Horsbrugh at the Army and Navy Club in Pall Mall. (Swedenborg Archive Address Book of James John Garth Wilkinson dated 1895. See also Swedenborg Archive Address Book of James John Garth Wilkinson ‘Where is it’ dated 1.10.1892). NB: ?(could the spelling be Horsburgh?) (Is this the right man?) listed in both of Garth Wilkinson‘s address books at the East India Service Club, and at 16 St. James’s Square, and there is also a Major Horsbrugh listed at the Army and Navy Club in Pall Mall. (There are two other entries in the ‘Where is it?’ address book for Horsbrugh; another entry for Boyd Horsbrugh though The East India United Service Club, 16 St. James’s Square, SW is crossed out and ‘deceased’ is written next to his name, which makes me doubt this is indeed Boyd Robert Horsbrugh (1871-1916)? Three names below is another entry for Major Horsbrugh at The Citadel, Cairo, Egypt (crossed out) as if these are two separate people? Why did Garth Wilkinson think Boyd Horsbrugh was ‘deceased’, and who is Major Horsbrugh?

I would not put any weight on this identification at this time! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boyd_Robert_Horsbrugh
