Wray remained in Toulouse until 18th July. On the 29th he embarked for Ireland and arrived at the Cove of Cork on the 4th August. He received his discharge at Dundalk on the 21st September 1814 and was admitted as an out pensioner on one shilling per day. He landed at Liverpool on 18th January 1815 after an absence from England of seventeen years, eight months and eighteen days. He returned home to Kempston, Bedfordshire. Wray calls upon Robert Harrold, now living in Ravensden, Bedfordshire as a witness to the truth of his story.
