2245 Sgt. Henry Porter, 40th Regiment of Foot
« on: Wednesday 26 August 20 06:07 BST (UK) »
Hello Forum members,
I am researching Henry Porter who died 1894 in New Zealand.
He arrived in New Zealand in 1860 with the 40th Regiment of Foot and remained in the country when the regiment returned to England.
I would be grateful for help in finding his enlistment details if possible.
Thank you,
John
