Wilson, John

An old Crimean veteran named Mr. John Wilson has died at Bombay at an advanced age. He was a dragoon of the 6th Inniskillens, which did service in the Crimea. He had been in the colony about forty years, and was one of the pioneer settlers of Bombay, which celebrates the fortieth anniversary of its foundation on Saturday next.
