Joseph Taylor was born in the Parish of St Marys, Leeds, circa 1792, and enlisted there on 13 October 1812, for unlimited service. Recorded as a Trumpeter, he was severely wounded at Waterloo and was discharged at Windsor on 11 March 1822, in consequence of ‘debilitated state of his constitution and repeated attacks threatening consumption which followed closely upon severe wounds received at Waterloo.’ Sold with copy discharge papers.
