what is the best source for British Military Postings Overseas 1850 - 1901?

I have an ancestor who was born in Aldershot (1868) but doesn't appear on UK census returns as he was away on tours of duty (based on his children's birth places) in Cairo 1893, Alexandria in 1895 and Aden, 1897. His son was a RSM for Irish Guards, and he himself Charles Michael Murphy was a Sargent and Irish but I don't know the Regiment. As he was born in Aldershot I am assuming his father was also in the army which also reflects why he is missing from the 1871 census as well.
How can I track down any records for this family as most typical sources Census, BMD etc are drawing a complete blank?
