red mail Blackness Castle
I am the steward at Blackness Castle ,although through my job i know quite a bit about its history,but i have started a quest that has caught the imagination of some of the villagers,over the years there have been many soldiers billited at Blackness so i thought it would be nice to speak of them ,one in particular has caught our imagination,he has written on the causway wall at the castle gate his name and when he was there ,so im trying to get his records from Kew ,i have to find out which regiment was there at the time ,the soldier has written 1796 P J Dow 18 R S G although the G may be B,an interesting find was in our guide book it tells of a small garrison being posted there of 1 sergeant 2 corporals 2 gunners and 12 soldiers, this was 1795 ,so im confident he was one of those. any help would be appreciated
