Crimean Soldier Records - Need More Info

Posted: 20 Aug 2013 2:25PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Bentley, Barnett
I am trying to get more information on Thomas Bentley (b. abt 1835 England) who served during the Crimean War. He eventually married one of my ancestors and immigrated to the US. According to his obituary, he served in the 21st Scots Fusiliers for 11 years participating in the battles of Balaclava, Sevastopol, and Kinburn. It also stated he received two silver medals.

I think the listing below may be him, but I would really like to find more information on him, like where he is from in England:
"Bentley Thomas Private 3326 21st Foot (Royal North British Fus.) Wounded Second Battle of Inkermann 05 November 1854"

Would anyone be able to tell me where else to look? Any information would be greatly appreciated!
