My wife is also a descendent of Robert Hill Pinhey. One of his sons was Hugh Theodore Pinhey who was my wife’s great grandfather – she knew him as an old man.
We have just inherited Hugh’s medals for service in the second Afghan war. We also have the medals which we think belonged to his grandfather - Robert Pinhey MD for service in the first Afghan war - the storming of Ghuznee 1839. I can send you pictures of the medals if you are interested. We were wondering if you had information on Robert Pinhey MD, I have made some progress with Hugh but very little with Robert!
Looking forward to hearing from you
