Re: [WarOf1812] Digest Number 1033
- Hi Janet,
Yes, various detachments of the RA served in Canada (but don't ask me which ones). According to his petition for land my gggg grandfather Alexander Sallans served with
the 9th Battalion of the RA and in 1814 at the conclusion of the war in Europe, was shipped to Kingston, Ontario were he was discharged in 1817. There were other
detachments of the RA in Canada prior to 1814 of course
