Hi Peter,
My husband's mother's family comes from this family. Victoria Prodger married James Hill. They had quite a few children with only two boys! I do have information on John Prodger who was with the 23rd Regiment in London, Ontario. There is also an article I got from the LAC that talks about the steamer COMMERCE colliding with the steamer DISPATCH on May 6 1850 close to Port Maitland on Lake Erie. 41 people were lost including one officer, five non-commissioned officers, one drummer, nineteen privates, eight women, five children and two civilians.
I just found the papers on LAC website for J. Prodger on 11 May 1853 of the 23rd Foot

British Military and Naval Records RG8 I, Volume 502, Page 203, reel C-3041 (found on LAC website in 2014 on page 1179)
Prodger, J. Pte., Res. Battn. 23rd Foot
Authority requested to pay him gratuity claimed on becoming a settler in Canada.
Lt. Col. W. J.D'Urban to the Military Secretary, Montreal.
Deputy Adjutant General's Office, Montreal.
11 May 1853

I'm willing to share anything else I have.
