    Also searching the 41st (Welsh) regiments documents I found this from the same source as the Malta link above, which shows that the Depot Bn was in Preston from 1860 to 1865, so he was with them in 1861, but it does not explain how he was in Sunderland in 1862, whilst the 1st Bn was in Adershot in 1861 and later in Newcastle from 1862 to 1863 after being in Sheffield, which probably explains him being in Sunderland -see below. In 1864 the 1st Bn were at the Curragh in Dublin, so this fits well enough as they often were spread over quite large areas at a time when official barracks were few and far between. It makes sense with the Sunderland and Belfast entries that the unit had detachments spread over a very wide area as this was common practice during this period.
