Buffs 3rd Afghan War

I am trying to trace any info or regimental photos of Arthur Frederick (liked to be known as Frederick) Emery. He served in the buffs 1919 3rd Afghan War and later in Royal West Kent Regiment. I have his medal card but unable to find any other info

Emery was a regular soldier with The Buffs and had service number L10574. This makes it likely that he joined the regiment in the first half of 1915. He served with the 4th Battalion in India for the duration and was only entitled to the British War Medal as a result.

His service in the Afghan War was as attached to the 3rd Wireless Signalling Squadron. As you say he later served with The Queens Own Royal West Kent Regiment.

I'm not aware of any photographs that exist of him unfortunately
