In February 1849 he was posted to the 74th N.I.: he joined that regiment at Mhow, in Malwa, and afterwards served with it at Dacca, Barrackporo, and Cawnpore. Early in 1857 he accompanied the corps from Cawnpore to Delhi, arriving there towards the end of March, and he was with it when it mutinied at that place on the 11th May. He succeeded in getting away, but was murdered in a Gújar village on the 13th, while endeavouring to make his way to Meerut.

Biography

Alexander, Robert Waller, Lieutenant (c. 1835— 1857).— Grave at Delhi, No. 94.— Son of the Revd. Robert Alexander, and great grandson of Sir Robert Waller, Bart. Entered the Bengal Army in 1852. Arrived in India in December of the same year, and was sent up to Benares to do duty with the 42d N.I. In March 1853 he was posted to the 3d N.I., which he joined at Jhelum, and with which he proceeded to Phillaur at the end of 1854. He was still serving at that place when the Mutiny broke out, and in June 1857 he was sent down to Delhi on escort duty with ordnance stores for the besieging force. While he was in camp before Delhi the rebels, on the evening of the 19th June, made a desperate attack on the rear of the British position, and going into action with the troops, as a volunteer, he unfortunately fell under the fire of the enemy.
