    Marvellous discovery. I'm sure you will have many an enjoyable hour digging through this excellent find and discovering more. Just like archaeology!

    Nice one Jerry. Like you say, difficult to find enlisted items although I have seen things like officers commissions turn up. I reckon something like that deserves a bit of special treatment. If I had it I would scan it or take pics so I didn't have to keep leafing through it to do research and maybe even treat it to an acid- free folder or something to keep it in. Just my 2 cents

    I will scan it and then store it carefully in some manner in which it is possible to view at least part of it.

    Very pleased to get this and thanks to all who have commented.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    When it is scanned I will post the pages here and any help on reading it will be gratefully accepted and much appreciated.

    Complexion Fresh?
    Eyes Blue?
    Hair Light Brown?

    I have a number of later versions of this type of document and that helps as I know the sort of answers they give, but it will be hard to work out all of it I think.

    If I am lucky it will arrive today, though I am supposed to be writing a report on a recent excavation and if it arrives it will distract me from my work.
    Regards,

    It arrived and has stopped me from working, oh well. It appears to be two different documents, both missing some pages.

    I have scanned all the pages, B&W fro pages with only printed text and colour for those with handwritten entries. It will take two posts to post them all.

    I did some research and checking the dates it seems he served with the 76th foot not the 7th foot. Apart from some slight discrepencies this fits with his recorded service.

    The 76th arrived on Malta in March 1851 (though the exact date is incorrect, being 10th in his document and 27th in the Malta records, though he might have counted his service from when he left Corfu?) after serving on Corfu

    27 Mar 1851: 319 men, 33 women, and 55 children arrived from Corfu.
    29 Apr 1851: 678 men, 53 women, and 104 children arrived from Corfu.

    Strength 1 Nov 1851: 994 men.

    Location: HQ Cottonera.


    and stayed there until 1853 when

    Strength: 910 men. HQ Valletta.

    10 Mar 1853: 700 men, 43 women, and 100 children 76th Foot left for Halifax Nova Scotia on the steam ship Simoon.




    76th Regiment of Foot
