    History & Achievements :

    Private James Murrie served as a member of the 99th Regiment's contingent in Tasmania. He was listed on the muster lists for 1853/54 and 1854/55. They show him as being in Van Dieman's Land during this time. James also served at Norfolk Island .

    The Obituary of James Murrie appeared in the Examiner News Paper Launceston, Tasmania
    "Mr James Murrie died yesterday ( 05/06/1867 ) at three o'clock after a brief illness. About a week ago he caught cold which was followed by typhus fever. He was a much respected, valuable and steady office and was a soldier in the 99th Regiment for some years. His sudden death has caused great surprise as he was a robust healthy man. He leaves a wife and a young family uncared for."
