    3. Hi Mary The Royal Welsh Fusiliers (23rd Regiment) were based at Brecon for five years until Monday 28th June 1830, when they departed for Plymouth and, presumably, thereafter for Ireland. The army records, including the general muster books and pay lists, are available at the National Archives, Kew: 23rd Foot, 1st Battalion, 1829: WO 12/3982 23rd Foot, 1st Battalion, 1830: WO 12/3983 Perhaps someone may be doing similar research and know a little more and/or be able to look up the relevant entries for you? There should be useful genealogical information attached to Edward's army record, but it's a research 'project', moving backwards and forwards through successive muster books, rather than a single 'look-up' to tease out what is required!
