RMT Depot:

WO 12/11014 (1856/57):

George Jones was on the Depot list for:

the 1 Oct-31 Dec Muster, but he and some others are just for 1 Nov onwards, so perhaps he moved into the Depot at that date - earlier dates not checked.

the Jan-March 1857 Muster , but shown as moving to the 6th battalion on 8 Feb - his marriage date. Perhaps the possibility of imminent posting set the marriage date.

Muster Rolls for the 6th Battalion for 1856/57; 57/58, 59/60

- not listed 1856/57.

6th Battalion:

WO 12/10988 (1856/58):

George Jones traced through the quarters, until 7 Jan 1858 - deserted!!!

Which explains why there was no discharge papers for him.

Enlistment 29 Dec 1852, and his place of birth as Kennington, Lambeth, South London, a Draper.
