With copied research papers. George William McNaughton was born in Browns Town, Jamaica and enlisted in the West India Regiment at Camp Jamaica in July 1888.  Confirmed Ashanti star on papers. Research shows he was very ill-disciplined and often absent from parade,  missing from Barracks etc.  It appears that McNaughton served in WWI but his papers were burnt at the War Office.
