If it is confirmed they will be given their own page and be listed above. The list of names has come from many areas, Military records of the Regiment , Pay rolls, Pay Musters, Cemetery Records, Church Records & General Muster Records etc etc . Many soldiers transferred from Regiment to Regiment

This list is still being compiled and will take a long time to complete. If the letter is not linked it is not yet complete.
A vast amount of assistance in compiling this list was given by Ken Larbalestier crossbows2@msn.com.au it is with much thanks we add the information he supplied and typed.
If not for his work and assistance many soldiers would never have been listed.
