Sapper
Robert Armstrong

Little is known of Sapper Armstrong.

We have a record that he prepared maps at the RE Survey Office under the command of Captain Parsons and we have a notation by Woodward from Cope's thesis that states that Sapper Robert Armstrong died on Duty.

From the file from the BC Archives, it would appear that Sapper Armstrong died some time after 1861.
