British Army 1851

British Army 1851

The following names have been extracted from the Army
List of January 1851 pages 90 & 91. They are listed under the
overall heading of "Dock Yard Volunteers". It would seem that
most of the Officers were appointed to these posts on 1st June

Their uniforms were stated to be "Blue with Red

I would assume that the "Breakwater Battalion" refers to
Plymouth as that is the only one of the naval ports at that time
to have a breakwater. The abbreviation (adj) means 'Adjutant'.
