From the 21st Fusiliers to the 21st Century

John Smith joined the British Army in 1812

After spending time at Waterloo, in the Carribbean dealing with revolting natives, and in his homeland Ireland, he then went to England where he departed with convicts to travel to Tasmania.

He finally arrived in the Swan River Colony where he resigned from the army and allowed his children to put down roots in Perth.

This is the record of those children and their descendants.



Base cost is $35.00 in my hand, book in your hand.
If we cannot meet in person, then postage and handling comes into play.

Because of the size of this volume (262 x A4 pages – 880 grams) Australia Post charges are exorbitant!

Book + P&H then are 

Australia –  $35.00 PLUS 14.00 P&H

Great Britain – $35.00 PLUS $42.80 P&H
