77th Regiment of Foot
50th Regiment of Foot
This regiment served in Australia twice. The first deployment was from from 1833 onwards as escorts to convicts with service in Sydney, Norfolk Island and Tasmania, before leaving for India in 1841.
Following service in the Maori Wars, they served again in Australia from 1867-69. The above button is of the style worn on the second visit according to Cossum. As the backmark includes the ‘Prince of Wales’ plumes that Jennens used from 1860, this would be correct.
11th (North Devonshire) Regiment of Foot
This regiment was garrisoned in Victoria Barracks, Sydney from 1845-1857, apparently being brought in to control the badly behaved 99th regiment! They returned to England in 1857.
