Last week after many months of searching I found details of my grandfathers birth in the regimental birth index on 1837 online I sent off for the certificate and it arrived this morning the details about name ,place of birth ,fathers name are right but when it gets to the regiment which on the transcript is the the 70th foot it says 180th regiment. .The period is the 1860's and the 70th foot were in India I have looked in military info books that I have and googled but I can't find the 180th regiment Has anyone any idea how to find the 180th Thanks Bren
