47th Regiment & Charles FINNERTY

Hello --
I am interested in the activities of a Lieutenant Charles Finnerty who served with the 47th Regiment in Turkey from 19 Apr 1854 to 17 Aug 1856 (source: WO76/190). The regiment were engaged at Alma, Inkerman, Sevastopol etc. but Finnerty's name does not appear in the medal rolls, suggesting that he was with a detachment in Turkey during the above mentioned period. Does anyone know the role of the 47th in Turkey (I am guessing transport, ordnance, or even a showing at Kars). Clarification of what Finnerty was up to during his Turkey mission would be welcome.
He later became a Staff Officer of the Enrolled Pensioner Force in Western Australia, arriving here on the 'Sultana' in 1859.
