Hi Paul, Good to hear from you, I have seen these pictures before and been told about you and the early days of the 95th Rifles Living History Society in the late Seventies. I have to make a confession and apologise but I have inadvertantly deleted your logon when clearing out spam users. Please rei...

Very interesting and well done. I guess he must have received his Waterloo medal so you chase that down. Since he joined in Feb 1813 he probably went to Spain, more research there methinks!

Apologies, I've rechecked my source and Amos Norcott was the Lt Colonel and Wilkens the Major; I noticed an error in the summary list of the 2/95th personel. That should clear up Wilkens role! Both officers were badly wounded whilst the Battalion was in square and had to quit the field. The Battalio...

Hi Marty, yet another person with interesting ancester! All that I've managed to glean from my own set of Napoleonic literature is that 2nd LT William Shaw was indeed at Waterloo serving directly to the 2/95th Majors Norcott and Wilkins. The Lieutenant to whom he would ordinarily report was assigned...

Hi Kevin, Very interesting post. I've had a quick look in some of my books and I can tell you that he was in 2/95th No.1 Company at Waterloo commanded by Capt George Miller. His "In Corps" date is given as 4/4/1809. This would explain his absence from the retreat to Vigo with the 2/95th under Craufu...

Rifleman James Ashworth, 1/95 No. 8 Company under Capt G Miller's command at Corunna. Obviously survived the retreat and the battle. He gai...

Hi Ian, sorry for a delay in a reply but we've just had our AGM at the weekend and everyone was tied up in that. Very interesting topic, I'm quite envious of such a family history. At the time of your g-g grandfather the regiment would have been the Rifle Brigade; they came out of the line in Feb 18...
