Both Charles and Martha received medical attention aboard the Dudbrook

1852 Tranailles bought a sharp enquiry from the War Office – “Noted that Private Tranaille’s daughter (aged 20) accompanied him. Is she his own child or his daughter-in-law?” Tranailles was 37 at the time (WO 4/288 14 April, 1852)

1853 Enrolled Pensioner Charles Tranailles from the 29th Foot @7c charged as follows by the Surgeon Superintendent of the “Dudbrook”:

1) With disobedience of orders having persisted in drawing water over the ship’s side on the 2nd December, 1852 he having been directed by the Sentry Private Thomas Davenport not to do so.
2) For employing two convicts in doing the ……………………
3) For then and there using abusive and insubordinate language to the said Sentry.
4) For having used insolent language to Corporal Rooney in the presence of the Serjeant Major.
5) For having on the 3rd December conducted himself in a highly disrespectful manner to the Surgeon Superintendent when placed upon the Poop as a Prisoner.
Fellow guards from the Dudbrook wrote a letter asking Charles Tranailles be forgiven for his conduct aboard the Dudbrook.
Captain Bruce considered on the evidence given that Charles had been sufficiently punished enough given his Army service record.
