So what am I missing here?
Good point, David! I can only find those two as well
I'm presuming you're referring to "The Waterloo Roll Call" by Charles Dalton? Please correct me if I'm wrong! I've seen the entry in the 2nd edition "with biographical notes and anecdotes" and the details "Living at Melbourne, Australia, in 1891" etc. From the introduction to the Second Edition  Dalton said that Part III was a special feature of the Second Edition - "the list of non-commissioned officers and men who served at Waterloo, and subsequently received commissions in the British army." He didn't detail the source of this list although he said that he had "received much additional information from the relatives of Waterloo officers." Was this the source for Jeremiah's details? Certainly the Geelong newspapers reported that he was "found out" and that was the start of his decline when he left the United Service Home and was charged with vagrancy 3 times in 1893 and imprisoned for each charge.
