Shirley's UK Trip 2012 travel blog

It's my last day in London so, in spite of the beautiful weather, I just had to spend the day at the National Archives researching the military career of my great-grandfather who served in the 8th Regiment of Foot for 15 years before he came to Australia from Bombay in 1853.

It was hard work to plough through the quarterly muster rolls & pay sheets but I did come up with some surprises so it was definitely worth the effort.

So, not a very exciting day. I'm busy packing up, getting ready to pick up my car tomorrow & start on the next phase of my trip.
