Review of "China Jim" Life and Times in India.
When I first found this book I was very excited as the author 's name is in my family tree. But reading on, some things did not seem as I had expected. The author just mentions in passing that he had a first wife when leading up to his wedding to second wife who he was engaged to for five years. A long time, but trips home to the Uk were few and far between I suppose. I was glad to read that it was a happy marriage but am left wondering if there were any children .I was given a good picture of the long marches between skirmishes, the heat, and the desire to advance his rank and his fortune ."China JIM's" rank, gambling and army adventures were similar to my great Grandfather James Harris but I could not claim him as one of my family tree without further research.
