I too find The Times to be reliable in most instances. A while back I believe that there was an enquiry regarding pay raises in the British Army. See the Times of Monday 14 July 1806 for the details. So a font of information can be found when you are looking for something else.
You are right about Napoleon...Wellington complained, either officially or not, but certainly after he wrote a letter or two on the subject the amount of information published on his army in Spain diminished [much to my eternal frustration]
Enjoy the Holiday Season!
