The son, Richard Eyles Galindo, had quite an interesting life.

When he was nine his father applied for a place for him in Christ's Hospital; (a school). Although this was a fee paying school he was awarded a place through the benefaction of Penoyre's Gift (by will of 1816, of Thomas Stallard Penoyre, providing places at the school for children of relatives, colleagues, or others connected with the Apothecaries' Company).
He would have started at the preparatory school at Hertford before transfer at about the age of 11 to the senior school at Newgate Street in the City of London. He was discharged from the school on 20th December 1864, signed out, as per normal custom at that time, back into the care of his father, at 21 Essex Street Islington.

In 1871 he is in London as 'Head of Household' with his mother, presumably living on his father's legacy. Now 21 he applied for release of about £150 due from the will of his uncle Percy (see later). An accomplished artist he was able to supplement his income by illustrating books such as 'Little Folks History of England' by Mrs Isa Craig Knox and 'Tales of Heroes and Great Men of Old' Published by The Religious Tract Society.

Seeking adventure he joined the Army on 11th June 1877 as a Sergeant in the 8th Hussars. All the Galindos were fluent in Spanish and French and according to his Army record, Richard added Hindustani (Urdu) to his list of languages.

The Battle of Tel el Kebir




He saw action in the Anglo-Egyptian war of 1882, particularly in the Battle of Tel el-Kebir for which he was awarded a medal.

In 1885, as Sergeant, he was in Afghanistan showing his mapping skills. A map, 6 inches to one mile, of the Panjdeh exists showing approximate Russian and Afghan positions on 30 Mar 1885.

Perhaps as a result of this he was promoted to Sub Lieutenant in 1885 and to Captain in 1891. He retired on half pay in 1899, now aged 49.

His mother at this time was living in Cannes (she died in 1909) and it seems he went to live there as he travels to and from Marseilles many times over the next few years, saying on a 1921 Ship's Passenger List, that France was his country of permanent residence.
He died in 1926 at Rathbone, Northern Ireland.

He never married so this Galindo line ended.
