1841 H.William Shore 594 Private 2nd Dragoons location Birmingham and Brighton
Discharge due to chronic difficulty breathing – heart disease.
When Willian Shore joined the Convict guard for the Hashemy there was no uniform large enough to fit a man 6 feet 4 inches tall and of a stout build so the Ordnance Department had to send a quantity of material to the ship post haste so a suit could be made prior to sailing.
