thank you very much. One thing I donīt understand. He was captain (brevet major) and then promoted to Lt.-Col? Was that a brevet rank or did he become full Lt.-Col.?
>In any case, John Campbell was promoted lieutenant-colonel, commission to be dated 18th of June, 1815, for his conduct during the battle of Waterloo. So most probably he was in command.<
Who other? I think he was the senior remaining officer.
Do you know something about the probable uniform he may wore?
>Commanding officer of 3 Line Bat. K.G.L. was Lt-Col Fred. de Wissell, although the senior officer was Colonel H.G. de Hinuber.<
Good info, thank you. Most KGL Colonels were used for higher command or absent from their bataillons. Brevet Col. Ompteda and Brevet Col. du Plat were commanding a brigade each.
