Postby Banker » June 4th, 2011, 2:50 am

All, As I was looking through my bookshelf earlier today I came across a computer generated roll to the above (obviously something I stumbled at one point and thought it will come in handy one day :lol: )

If anyone wants a man checked against it yell out

Here is a list of the 74th Regiment of Foot's Army of India Winners, some i have pension details for, ill try to add some more detail soon.
Only 19 given out, no surprize that 3 are drummers considering the medal was handed out more than 40 year after the battle and the 74th being only about 600 strong at the battle of Assye, where about half were killed or wounded.
Interesting to see that drummer John Thomas born in Bengal India went on to serve in the peninsula war.
