I would welcome any help in tracking down some information on John DANIEL(S). All I know is that he was a gunner in 4 co 6 Rgt Artillery Bengal. His number was 285. He was discharged aged 39 in 1855 after serving 17 yrs 2 mths.
P.S. Not sure whether this is the best board, so will also try the India board.
That suggests he was in an East India Company unit - not British Army. So the records will be in the India Office Collection at the British Library.
If you try the FIBIS website you'll find loads of helpful advice.
Are you looking for info re: his military history or details of his whereabouts etc after his discharge?
Where was he born?
More his military record, as I think I know what happens after his discharge. This assumes that his military record confirms that he is indeed my John Daniel(s). He was born in Winchmorehill/Edmonton, Middx in 1815. If it helps, his parents were William Daniels and Rebecca Hobbs.
