Men listed as
deserting from the Regiment
These men have been recorded as
deserting from the Regiment in which they served. There is more
than a strong possibility these men eventually settled. We have
included them as they received a description etc. and it may be
of help to their descendants. Today we understand why these men
deserted, many were treated worse than the convicts were.
