Further Information1858 Discharge, Casualty List/Injury/Disability: In action against mutinous Sepoys at Jug … pore on 12th August 1857 received a gunshot wound in the left forearm. The bullet passed through the entire tissue between the ulna and radius, destroying the soft parts. The hand, in consequence, is rendered useless, thus unfitting him for military service. His disability is attributable to a wound in action and has not been aggravated by vice or intemperance.

1874 The Inquirer and Commercial News  Wed 9 Sep 1874 Page 3 Advertisement for Dr. Kosenthal, Oculist and Aurist: “Nicholas Walsh (late Imperial Army). His eyes have been bad for the last three years; is able to see clearer now, and on the way to recovery. Margaret Walsh (wife of the former), is nearly recovered, and is able to distinguish things with more accuracy.”
