The 28th North Gloucestershire Regiment of Foot was an infantry regiment of the British Army that served in Australia as garrison troops from 1835 to 1842, before serving in India. British troops in Australia “provided guards for wrecks, goldfields, colonial treasuries, quarantine stations, government houses and the opening and closing of legislatures and mounted escorts for gold in transit. They manned coastal defences and fired ceremonial artillery salutes. They also operated intermittently against aboriginal resistance in most of the colonies.” Ref: Wiki; Digger History.
