Update on Thomas Richards

If you have not previously read it I suggest you read this page first http://genemeet.blogspot.co.uk/2009/01/best-genealogy-find.html as this is an update on this earlier post.
I have been trying to find Thomas Richards on the Army Records at Find My Past but could only find one in the 75th rather than the 76th. However this weekend I found a record for a Thomas Richards in the Peninsula Medal Roll and realised that the 76th Foot was the Duke of Wellington's Regiment. I also found the regimental museum website, as the museum is in Halifax I hope to visit next time we are in Yorkshire to see what I can find out about where he fought and possibly where he was born.
