Armed Forces / A Colour Sergeant deserter?

Thanks to your help I now know Ernest Hayes was a colour sergeant and there is a family story that he deserted but no proof of this.
However, I think I found him on a campaign medal list with a faint note next to his name about desertion but canít make out the date. 
How can I find out more?

Thank you

Thank you so much....with my very limited knowledge,  Colour and Company sergeant popped into my head.  What is the difference?

No military connections so apologies if I don't explain this well.  I've found a Sergeant listed on Form H for the 1901 census, Royal Barracks in Arran Quay Dublin.  There are 3 other sergeants listed after his name but the entry for my man says Co Sgt.....what does this mean?

thank you
