Re(1): Abraham Bunker

Welcome to the Web Site Walter.
Please click on the link below (in blue ).
Pvt Abraham Bunker's name appears on the list of those killed or injured in the Battle of Inkermam November 5th 1854.
Scroll down to about half way down a very large page until you find a highlighted box headed 20th Regt of Foot. His name is in the list of Privates.

He is listed on the Forces War Records Web Site with the entry:

First Name:
Abraham
Surname:
Bunker
Incident Date:
01/01/1851-31/03/1851
Rank:
Private
Service Number:
3411
Duty Location:
Montreal, Canada
Primary Unit:
20th (The East Devonshire) Regiment Of Foot
Archive Reference:
WO 12/3724
Collection:
1851 Worldwide Army Index

This should be a starting point for your research.

The only information I have been able to locate regarding Frederick Bunker is as follows. Again taken from the Forces War Records Web Site.

First Name:
Frederick
Surname:
Bunker
Rank:
Private
Service Number:
7
Recommendation Date:
1875
Adjutant Generals List:
11
Service:
British Army
Primary Unit:
20th Regiment Of Foot
Secondary Unit:
1st Battalion (Why is this important?)
Archive Reference:
WO102_5_7
Collection:
Long Service & Good Conduct Awards 1831-1979

Gallantry Awards:
Long Service And Good Conduct Medal

As you can see the above entries have a reference number for the National Archives. It would be useful for you to search their names further with them.

I will get back to you with any additional information when I have researched further.

The above however will give you a good starting point for further enquires.
Regards
Geoff P
