Goldfields Involvement, 1854
Post 1854 Experiences
Michael McAdam, a private in the 40th swore that he saw Patrick Sheedy taken 'convanient' to a tent 200 yards from the stockade, but Patrick Lynot (also a private in the 40th) swore that Sheedy came out of his tent about 500 yards from the stockade 'only to see what was happening'. An unconvincing account given that a full-scale battle had just taken place.
