John Davidson's papers record that he initially joined the 45th Foot (Nottinghamshire Regt) on 22nd May 1834 at age 18. He was previously a brick maker. He later transferred to the 41st Foot (Welsh Regt) and is shown as being, "in possession of one medal for service in Afghanistan and four good conduct badges".
After 22 years and 6 days service his papers record that on 26th May 1856 he was discharged as medically unfit for further service due to service in severe climates ! 

He had also apparently been, 'hit on the head with a stone'.
He sustained this injury during 1848 and it clearly continued to trouble him, leading to his eventual discharge in 1856.
