OUT OF THE LADDER ST. HELENA APRIL 1888  JOHN MOSES 29TH COY ROYAL ENGINEERS

John Moses was from Darlington and enlisted into the Royal Engineers in 1885, aged 24. In October 1886 he was posted to St. Helena and remained there until April 1890, when he left for a 2 year posting to South Africa.
"The Ladder" was built in 1829 by the St. Helena Railway Company as a funicular to carry people up Ladder Hill to Ladder Fort. After termites had damaged the sleepers, the Royal Engineers were ordered to remove the cars and machinery. Alongside the rails was a 700-step staircase for pedestrians. It is thought that this was carved from some of the wood removed by the Royal Engineers. When he enlisted into the army, John Moses gave his trade as "carpenter".
He left the army in April 1897.
