Searching for Private Plum

On 15 October 2010 the 7/60th Re-enactment Association was contacted by the descendant of a German soldier who served in the historical 7/60th Foot.  The gentleman has kindly agreed to allow the group to examine, transcribe and photograph the pay book and discharge papers belonging to Private Francis (Franz) Plum from Aachen, Germany, who served in No. 6 Company of the 7/60th Foot from 1813 to 1817, and settled in New Brunswick following his discharge.  These exceptionally rare documents will provide new and invaluable insight into the personal stories of the soldiers we represent, and will greatly improve our historical portrayal.  More news to follow!
