Prior to 1820 Australians and British were recruited into the locally based (Australian) military units. It is estimated that 60 Australian born lads enlisted locally, and a further 120 convicts and migrants enlisted in Australia. After 1820 troops were generally recruited in England and Ireland.
An alphabetical list of almost all of the 34,000 men and some women who served in or with the British Army in colonial Australia, cross-referenced to other Regiments. Includes some who served in New Zealand.
Details of these records were prepared from the payrolls. The methodology used to extract each soldier's name varied from record to record, unit to unit. This was because of the variations made by paymasters in their payroll construction. It was not possible to identify 'Australian' recruits, as no mention is made of them in the payrolls.
