    History & Achievements :
    Denis Brennan of the 70th regiment stayed in Western Australia  after resigning from the regiment. He  reached the rank of Sargent in the Swan River colony, but was broken to private when it came out in April 1859 that he had turned a blind eye when two of the privates in his section (?) had either been habitually drunk (John Purvis)- or sitting down in sentry box (John Donohue) - on duty. He resigned in the next year and became a very successful merchant and landowner in Perth, dying in 1884. We have the details of his 'crimes' from the War Office records at the PRO in Kew,
