INFORMATION TO BE ADDED - NOTHING IN EJBA

1679, Private James FORDAN - 13th Light Dragoons

Also recorded as "Foden" and "Forden"


There was originally no information about this man in the EJBA. When he started researching the field, James Boys included only those men he knew from records had actually arrived in the Crimea. He later accepted that this was too restrictive, but was unable to add all the men who embarked for but did not reach the Crimea. Many, for example, died en route at Varna, Bulgaria, where epidemic diseases such as cholera were rife in the camps. The current editors are intending to include these men, and will be adding information as soon as possible.

Further info in Crider, 3rd Edition, p.351.
