61st (The South Gloucestershire) Regiment of Foot
« on: Tuesday 04 January 22 13:13 GMT (UK) »
Are there any available records which might tell me the service of the following individual:

Francis Tilley Private Service Number 699 Entered 1861.
Was known to be with the Secondary Unit at Pembroke Dock, Wales

We know that he emigated to the USA sometime before 1887 but what happened to him in between?

Many thanks for any help
