SOLDIERS -

This is a list of Soldiers that were on the Isle of Wight at the dates below.  These were extracted from various records at the County Record Office.  This does not reflect their length of service, or their length of stay on the Island, it only shows the date of the records.  I do have more information which I can send if you would like to email me.  As this is an ongoing project, please re-visit.
