The Enrolled Pensioner Force consisted of soldiers, who came to the colony of Western Australia between 1850 and 1880, most arriving during the years of convict transportation as Guards on the convict ships.
The soldiers are listed alphabetically by surname – please click on the appropriate link to locate the person you are looking for.
PLEASE NOTE: the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the Hougoumont in Western Australia on 9 January 1868 provided the impetus to launch our website at this time. We have concentrated initially on the men who arrived on her as a fitting introduction to the profiles of all the men of the Enrolled Pensioner Force. These will be added gradually over time.
REQUEST FOR INFORMATION
We hope you are enjoying our website.
While a lot of effort has been put into researching ‘our’ men, we will never know the whole story without your help.
We would appreciate it if you could advise us through the Contact Page of any errors you have found.
Also we would love to have any photographs of the men, their parents, siblings and children AND family stories.
We would prefer not to have just dry facts !
