    Link to Google MapsNote - .... letters survive from Albert Culpin, the son of the Congregational minister, in which he refers to Shillington men whom he met nearly everywhere he went. He was a restless man who enlisted at one stage where he met some he knew. He then deserted and stowed away to America, travelled the country extensively and later went to Australia. - 1877 - Shillington, Beds Link to Google Earth
    Link to Google MapsNote - By contrast Albert Culpin, son of the Rev. Ben Culpin, minister at Shillington Congregational Church, never saw active service. He seems to have enlisted in the 41st foot in 1877 almost by accident and he deserted soon afterwards: ....you will be sad when you here I have listed in the army. I cant make out how it was I left Hitchin, but I must have been a fool like a great many who join .... When I got to London .... I did think a little about joining the navy. I asked a police[man] the way to Westminster.... He said come and list in something better so the Sargent gave me 1 shilling at St. George\'s barracks, so I come to London on the 3rd and listed and pased the doctor all before 12 o\'clock on Sunday the 4th... I will tell you a bit about food and bed breakfast bread and coffee, for dinner, meat and potatoe; tea, bread and tea; straw bed and pillow, 2 blanckets and 2 sheets - it makes me think about your good beds. Don\'t break your hearts about me - I fancy I coud here you praying for me [Ref: X345/1]. - 1877 - Shillington, Beds Link to Google Earth
