Time between attestation & joining a battalion

Postby devils own » July 9th, 2017, 11:54 am

I have a man who joined the 47th at Hilsea on the 23rd Feb 1812, but does not enter the musters of the 2/47th in Spain until the 12 feb 1813, which is a whole year. Seems like a very long time in Hilsea or am i reading the musters wrong here. i know campaigning sort of stopped in winter.& his arrival in Feb with others for the 1813 campaign would make a lot of sense, but a whole year? he was between 16 & 17 yrs of age
