Hello Mike,

Thanks for the quick reply. I look forward to reading the information on the Turkish Contingent once you post it. It is wonderful that you have your ancestor’s medals, journal and image. I have little information myself on the Turkish Contingent. I found that Pattinson was appointed Major in the cavalry of the Turkish Contingent on March 27, 1855. He acted as Adjutant-General of cavalry, under Major-General Shirley. He was appointed to the command of the 3rd regiment of carabiniers. [Not certain what this unit was but it sounds like a rifle regiment of some sort.] Sometime in 1856 he was discharged. All my research has been done over the internet and in local libraries.

I am not related to Pattinson. My interest in him started as a result of my collecting the stamps of Heligoland. Once I discovered that he was born in Canada I wanted to know more about him.
