    Default Soldier records

    My great-great grandfather was a soldier in the Crimean War
    John Cox, born about 1829 in Ireland
    Moved to England about 1851-1854
    There are 209 John Cox recorded
    What records exist, where, and what information is held to help me determine the correct one please?
    I think I have to go to National Archives as records not online, but ?I have no clue as to where to start.
    Any help would be very welcome, thank you

    The National Archives has this research guide but I must admit it doesn't seem that simple and will need more than one read to understand.
    I am sure others will have some ideas.
