22nd Regiment of Foot 1871 ish

Postby cr1tical » 14 Jul 2017 15:28

I have seen info that says that in the mid 1860s the depot of the 22nd Foot was at Parkhurst IoW. I know that in 1871 (the year I am interested in) 1st Bn 22nd Foot was stationed in Guernsey and the 2nd Bn in Aldershot. Does anyone know where their depot was? Still at Parkhurst??

In April 1871 the 1st Battalion of the 22nd was at Kinsale (Ireland) and the 2nd Battalion at Aldershot: http://usacac.army.mil/CAC2/CGSC/CARL/n ... 871DAA.pdf

The following year the 1st Battalion moved to Guernsey but the 2nd Battalion remained in Aldershot. When a separate depot is not mentioned it usually means that both battalions depot companies are co-located with the 'home' Battalion, in this case the 2nd, at Aldershot.

Thank you for that, understood, Depot at Aldershot with the 2nd Bn.

(Stations of the Army has 1st Bn in Guernsey from the May 1871 publication).

Grateful for your time.

That really is a help indeed. I had been concentrating on the battalions thus far and had overlooked the service/depot companies. Thank you very much, if you are able to find the link I'll be even more grateful!

Is the part above the top line of the service companies "Sheffield.....Aldershot 27 Sep 1870 visible on what you have? Tantalisingly, the period just before this is my main focus and this must have been Sheffield but from when?
