1st Bn of Foot (Royal Scots)

Postby Waggoner » 11 May 2016 11:49

I have been approached by a gentleman who is researching his ancestor's service in New Brunswick. He has found the following:

"On 14 March 1848 they were picked up by HMS Belleisle and shipped to Halifax where they promptly re-embarked for Saint John, N.B., arriving 12 April. Two Companies were left there while the remaining 4 companies and HQ group went to Fredericton. The Battalion stayed in N.B. until 6 May 1850 when it went to Halifax and the following year 15 July 1851 returned to UK."

I was wondering if anyone is aware of any books, diaries, etc. that have been published relating to their service here? If so, it would help to flesh out the details of their daily activities.

All the best,

Gary

Bumping this up. No Royal Scots historians?
