Greetings from Warsaw, Poland!

We would be grateful if someone could help us with researching the trace of someone at the National Archives in Kew.

It is a French prisoner of War, who was held by the British army during the Napoleonic War.

A list of French prisoners exists there: http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C1812

The soldier was captured in Spain on 19 December 1813 then transfered to England according to his military record; He was released on 18 May 1814;
His name Louis Honoré Nicolas MORIN
His regiment was the 1st Regiment of Paris
He was born in Lizy, France

Thank you very much for any help!

Kind regards
