By a memo dated 10th January 1850 the Staff Officer at Falmouth was directed to send Pensioners Samuel Annear and William Hall and their families by boat to arrive not later than 19th January at Tilbury Fort. They were allotted 3 days’ pay for expenses
After the arrival of the Scindian at Fremantle Captain Henderson wrote a report listing the name, rank, trade or calling, rate of pension, date of enlistment for 5 months service, marital Status, and number of children for each pensioner. Sometimes the trade of calling differed from that recorded at the time of attestation.
