    History & Achievements :
    Private  CHARLES HORN(E) # 1296 enlisted 1st January 1839 discharged Swan River Colony on 31st December 1844(AJCP reel 1074 piece 266 WO 28) Major F.C. Irwin was Commandant of West Australian troops. I understand a Detachment of 51st embarked at Hobart Town "VDL" (TASMANIA) and arrived at King George's Sound (ALBANY) in Swan River Colony per "RUNNYMEDE" on 25th June 1840. Captains S.W. Fisher and H. Rolles, Lieut Edw. Corbett of 72nd Regt. Ensigns A.Irby, H. Northey G.E.Warburton,Asst Surgeon Thos.Bartlett,six(6) Sergeants,124 Rank and File,24 women and 24 children were aboard. HORN was stationed at stationed at KGS. on Garrison Duty according to Musters (ref WO 12 reel 3809 - 3815) his place of birth noted on Muster Roll (reel 3814/6207) appears to be Wellingborough, Northampton and occupation is Shoemaker. HORNE is transcribed as HORN however there are also other HORNS and HORNES mentioned in "The British Army in Australia" by James H.Donohoe in 48th,40/1,12th,46th,96th,3rd,21st,17th & 58th Regiments which may be connected. I seek info.of enlistment of Charles HORN ie N.O.K etc as I am unable to find him on IGI.I suspect he was born about 1818. He settled in Western Australia and married in 1845 died circa 1869.His age recorded on marriage certificate is 27. Horn later joined Police Force 1855 - 1858 as a Mounted Constable in Beverley,Western Australia.
    Note: Sarah Horne married 6 December 1870 John TOMLINE in Beverley Western Australia. John Tomline died 9 April 1907 York Western Australia. You are obviously aware of Muster  & Pay Lists on AJCP for 51 st Regiment.
