    Hi Barry and Margaret
     
    A couple of things
     
    I have this theory that the first native born Australian to serve in
    a theatre of war could have been a returning NSW Corps soldier who
    went to the 1812-15 British American War.  Certainly William Ikin who
    was born in England, came out as an infant in 1790, enlisted in the
    NSW Corps, returned to England with the Corps in 1810, served in
    America, returned to England then to Sydney in 1816, could claim to
    be an Aussie, and therefore was the first Aussie to serve in a
    theatre of war.
     
    Certainly there were at least two NSW Corps soldiers who were born in
    and enlisted in Sydney who returned to England in 1810.  Around 20 to
    30 soldiers in the returning group had enlisted in the colony of
    NSW.  Most of these men were ex convicts or sons of Corps soldiers.
    However this group included two who had been born in Sydney and one
    who had been born on the voyage to Sydney.  Namely William Mitchell
    born Sydney 1788, William Jamieson born 1791 on voyage, and Thomas
    Hortle born 1792.  Therefore it can be clearly stated that these men
    were the first Australians to serve abroad.  (see Pamela Statham's
    book A Colonial Regiment)
     
    This is an interesting link.

    I have just put up a paper I wrote in 1986 on Chelsea Pensioners in
    Australia.  I have another index of pensioners which I hope to put up
    soon.
