Listed with links to images of original records, this information is from a database of 11,981 recordsfrom the National Army Museum at www.nam.ac.uk/soldiers-records/persons.

Some of these list address or discharge with the notation "Comm. Of Emigration". I'm curious about that organization. Any information to share?
