He served as a medical officer in Canada in the War of 1812 in ‘Blayney’s Bloodhounds’ (the 89th Foot) and also spent time in India, at first attempting to establish himself as a businessman in Calcutta through family connections, then turning to journalism, and finally embarking on a tiger-hunting adventure on Saugur island that earned him the nickname ‘Tiger’ Dunlop. An attack of ‘jungle fever’ brought about his return to Scotland in May 1820. He settled in Canada in 1825.
