    History & Achievements :

    Took up a Veteran Land Grant at Veteran’s Flat, Oakhampton, Maitland, NSW during the late 1830’s.
    Died in Oakhampton in 1850.
    I have been told he served with the NSW Veteran Corps while in NSW. Some stories say he was a Convict Guard and others that he served in the Mounted Police.
    That is all I know but would like to find any other information that helps to fill in gaps.
    One such gap is his Medal entitlements. I have a photo of him in later life with three medals on his chest. I know one is the Waterloo Medal, but am unaware of what the other two are or where I can look to find out this information. I have a copy of WO 97/58 which appears to be his certificate of discharge from the 23rd Lancers in 1817. This document mentions nothing about Medals and only has a brief history of service – dates only.
