General Francis Young, from Wexford, of the Indian Staff Corps, died on January 4 1893 at Marlborough House, Southsea. From a press cutting of the day: “The gallant officer, who had attained to the age of 75, served in the suppression of the mutiny in Bengal in 1857-59, and received the thanks of the Lieutenant-Governor of Bengal for a successful pursuit of a body of Sepoy rebels in Behar in June, 1858.” He received an Indian Mutiny Medal.
