Sapper William Bentley

Sapper Bentley appears to have worked on the Boundary Commission Survey from its arrival at Esquimalt in 1858.

On the 4th of May, 1859, Colonel Moody of the Columbia Detachment posts off a letter to Colonel Hawkins of the Boundary Commission wishing information on, "...the disposal of Sapper W. Bentley, RE, at present a prisoner in the Guard Room at the RE Camp at Queenborough."

On the 9th of June, 1859, Colonel Moody again writes to Colonel Hawkins wishing "to know what charges should be laid against Sapper William Bentley, RE #3815, who has been a prisoner in the Camp since the 25th March, 1859."
