    I can't see anything on TNA either. However, I think I've found him in 1881 under the name of Shilton:

      I'm not sure you would expect to find him on TNA website. Earlier and later army records are available, but there is a bit of a black hole for those discharged after about 1855 through to those who didn't take part in WW1 (I believe!). His record is probably available if you visit though

        There's a divorce for a William and Sophia Shelton who'd only been married a year

        There's also a William Shelton on the Boer War site, but he's in the Imperial Yeomanry:

          I dont/didnt know what i would find on TNA as i dont know how to search it... was hoping to find some sort of snippit, to help pin him down to a specific time/place where I figure he might've signed up..

            Actually I found him in 1881 by looking for William with no surname, occupation soldier.

            I tried the same in 1891, but didn't come up with anything.
