Northumberland Fusiliers?

Mrs. Board, of 18, Elmore-street, Islington, asked Mr. D'Eyncourt, at the North London Police-court, yesterday, to assist her in finding her husband, who has disappeared under rather singular circumstances. He - Charles Board, an army pensioner, aged thirty-eight - had been wounded in the face during the late war in South Africa, and had a mechanical contrivance in his mouth to assist in the healing process. He accidentally swallowed part of this apparatus, and left on Monday to go to the Metropolitan Hospital to have it seen to. But he did not go to the hospital, and has not been seen or heard of by her since. The man's description is: 5ft. 8in. in height; long, thin face, growing a dark beard; chin and jaw deformed owing to gunshot wound. He was wearing a dark pilot jacket and Trilby hat. As he appeared depressed, it is feared that some ill has befallen him.

Evening Express, 28th August 1903

The death of a Charles Henry Board, aged 36, was recorded at the Southwark registration district, in the third quarter of 1903. Perhaps he was found in the River Thames?

A Charles Henry Board had his birth recorded at the St Mary Magdalene Bermondsey registration district, second quarter of 1865.
