1882 Soldiers Record Information Query

Recommended Posts

Egypt 1882 medal made into pin broach, 3882 Pte G Weatherdon 10th Co. C&TC.

Looking up his records states `Deserted` but no more information on that. He enlisted for 12years but no mention of territorial. He came from Exeter, also found the same person as T3882  and came from Exeter but no mention of `Deserted`.  Can anyone explain 2 records for the same soldier and if there is any information available for deserters in that period?

A quick look at Ancestry.ca - I have no access to British files - shows a 'Tom G. Weatherdon' born c1842 and a 'Thomas G Weatherdon' born about 1881.  Is it possible that the two names refer to two men - first cousins or even father and son - one of whoim deserted from the regular Army and one of whom was a Terrier?  The matching serial numbers may be a nice coincidence or a clerical error which conflates the two men nto oe individual.  Just a thought. :)
