Good research, Helachau!

Have you tried the British Army, Worldwide Index 1841? FMP have it available but my sub has expired.
Have you obtained his service record?
The register of attestations available on FMP suggests something a little different from what you described. It looks to me as if he was in the Territorial...
Don't forget to read the relevant National Archives research guides.
I think this site assumes that you carelessly omitted the "S" and adds it for you.
