Looks promising.

There are a few other things to check out. I may be some time.
Great stuff, Gary. I look forward to seeing what you find.

Marks: Scar left leg (old scars on leg plus tattoos)
The 1873 licence info matches the deserter in the RA who was born in SGE and was a baker, was it?. I wonder if Hellingly might have just got his height measurement wrong?

He was, and they could have, Debs. Either that or he was wearing Phillip Walton's grandad's demob boots when he was measured (Sorry, Phillip).

Do you think 5 years in a civilian prison for desertion seems a bit stiff (thinking of the Poona soldier)?
