Footnotes

  • Joshua Foxwell enlisted in Middlesex in 1816 and arrived in India aboard the Calabar on 16 May 1816 to join the Bombay European Regiment. Shortly, before the outbreak of the Third Mahratta (Pindarry) War, the Bombay Europeans made a forced march to strengthen the handful of imperiled Company troops with Mountstuart Elphinstone at Poona. On 5th November 1817 the combined force numbering only 3,000 defeated the 26,000 strong army of the Peshwa at Kirklee and having been reinforced by troops under Brigadier-General Lionel Smith, went on to take part in the capture of Poona. Although originally contracted for five years service, Foxwell re-enlisted on the completion of his original term. The date of his last enlistment is given as 27th September 1828. He was pensioned on the 18th December 1837.
