    I found your email address on the Internet and am making contact in the hope
    That you may be able to give me information about any books or accounts of
    The Royal Staff Corps, which served during and for a time after the
    Napoleonic wars.
     
    My interest is that my great-great grandfather was Captain, an officer in the Royal Staff Corps from 1809. He had nine years on
    Full pay and ten on half pay. He came to Australia to take up the position
    Of Deputy Surveyor-General, which he held from 1829-1852. Another name that
    Could be added to your list is that of Captain William Dumaresq, who also
    Came to Australia from about 1827 and died here in 1868. He was a brother
    Officer and close friend of Perry.
     
     
    I am at present researching Perry with the intention of writing up his life
    And so am anxious to discover all I can of existing published or archival
    Sources of the Royal Staff Corps and its service, particularly on the
    Peninsular and Waterloo, where Perry and Dumaresq served.
     
    Any information you can suggest to me would be very much appreciated.

    Both men Perry and Dumaresq were involved in the return of the horses from Paris to Venice
    After Napoleon had been defeated.
