Simon Pritzler of the 12th regiment

"EUREKA VETERAN DEAD - SYDNEY. Saturday. Mr Simon Pritzler, a very old resident of Goulburn, and a retired police officer and former army man, died on Wednesday at the age of 84. He was a native of Ireland, joined tho 12th British Regiment of foot, and came to Sydney In the forties. He took part in the Eureka Stockade battle, and also served with credit In the New Zealand war. When in the military servlce In Sydney, he was selected as one of the bodyguard of Sir John Young, then Governor of the colony, and travelled with him to Winderadeen near Collector, the party arriving there the day after the murder of Constable Nelson and Ben Hall, Gilbert, and Dunn, on January 26, 1865. The outlaws had made public their Intention of "getting" the Governor. Private Pritzler was on guard and during the night he fired at a bush-ranger's "telegraph," scaring the gang away. Sir John was not other- wise molested. Mr. Pritzler then left the military service and joined the police force under Captain Zouch. He was 33 years in the service"[1].

Note: Most of this recount does not compare with other source documents available; which brings into question some of the other claims. i.e. Simon Pritzler was with the 12th Reg but was not posted to Eureka, nor Lambing Flats. His first actions was in the 3rd Moari War. (Constable Nelson was shot dead months before Ben Hall). http://freepages.rootsweb.com/~twelthregiment/military/12th_Regiment_All_Soldiers_Details.pdf
