I recently found a newspaper article mentioning a possible ancestor from 1856, serving in the Crimea War.
How would I find more information on this person to confirm or not his link to me. I have a John Weston who was a Vet in the 1851 and 1861 census, but no mention of a military record.
The NA records online came up with the following "7 Mar 1856 Pay rate for Vet Surgeon Weston att Land Transport Corps."
Any hints would be greatly appreciated
