Lack of information on the web means that it needs someone like you to
put it there!
The best information source I have found is the Latter Day Saints.
Visit your local LDS research centre and they will order the relevant
fils from their archives. They are very chap, around £2.75 (UKP) per
film - and will help you find what you seek. I am a regular user of
their services (but I am not a member of the LDS - just in case you
thought that this is turning into a party-political broadcast).
For the St Helena Regiment, order the index(s) as well as the reels
containing the actual photographs of the original documents. In
several cases we obtained from one film that which was 'obscured' on
the other. I also take my digital camera with me and photographs the
images directly off the film reader. So much cheaper than a photocopy
at 20p a throw!
