Michael Quinn, who was born in Galway, enlisted in the 41st Regiment in June 1848, aged 18 years. Having then served in the Ionian Islands and Malta, he was embarked for the Crimea, where he was severely wounded by a gunshot wound through the ankle at Inkermann, wounds that necessitated his discharge on returning to the U.K. in August 1855.
