UK and Ireland: Dockyard Volunteers

                          BRITISH ARMY 1851.
                         ------------------ 
               The following names have been extracted from the Army
     List of January 1851 pages 90 & 91.  They are listed under the
     overall heading of "Dock Yard Volunteers".
     It would seem that most of the Officers were appointed to these posts on 1st June
     1848.
     Their uniforms were stated to be "Blue with Red     Facings".
     I would assume that the "Breakwater Battalion" refers to
     Plymouth as that is the only one of the naval ports at that time
     to have a breakwater.  The abbreviation (adj) means 'Adjutant'.
