Journal Of A Soldier Of The 71st Regiment From 1806 to 1815
This ebook is purpose built and is proof-read and re-type set from the original to provide an outstanding experience of reflowing text for an ebook reader.
This work is the journal of an anonymous soldier from Edinburgh, known only as Thomas, having enlisted as a short term soldier for seven years in 1806. He was not motivated by any thought of gaining glory in the wars against France; his motive for enlisting was his lost honour and the shame of having wronged his parents following a failed attempt at a stage career. He was an educated man and wrote very well, but, haunted by the dishonour of his actions, he took the King's shilling from the first recruiting sergeant that was passing. Unknown to him this regiment was the 71st, later Highland Light Infantry, a regiment of great renown and �lan that had and would be in the forefront of the fighting.
