The Soldiers listed below represent the soldiers who were in Australia on Garrison Duty. It is unsure if they settled. If it is confirmed they will be given their own page and be listed above. The list of names has come from many areas, Military records of the Regiment , Pay rolls, Pay Musters, Cemetery Records, Church Records & General Muster Records etc etc . Many soldiers transferred from Regiment to Regiment

This list is still being compiled and will take a long time to complete. If the letter is not linked it is not yet complete.
A vast amount of assistance in compiling this list was given by Ken Larbalestier crossbows2@msn.com.au it is with much thanks we add the information he supplied and typed.
If not for his work and assistance many soldiers would never have been listed.
Military records of the Regiment , Pay rolls, Pay Musters, Cemetery Records, Church Records & General Muster Records.
