Wilkins family

Hi. I have recently returned to researching my Wilkins family history and have just come across some information about my Gt grandfather Richard John Wilkins b 1877 Burnley Lancashire. It appears that there is a desertion record for this man, publicised on 14/3/1899. It appears he deserted from the Royal Artillery in Newcastle on 4th March 1899. Does anyone know how I may find any information on this and was he subsequently court martialled?, was he imprisoned?. Would be grateful for any help with this
