I don't know, but a copy of his marriage certificate from the GRO (http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/) should provide you with his rank and regiment.
The marriage is recorded in the Army Marriages Index:
CHILD, Herbert John - Dinapore - 1890 - Page 60
A corresponding entry for Maude Margaret JOYCE exists with the same place, year and page number, confiming this to be the correct entry.
