Re: British Battalion Strength
In Response To: Re: British Battalion Strength ()

Ron -
I believe that I have read letters of warrant that specify how many men and officers a regiment could have at full strength, this includes at least one instance in which an original letter of warrant that was superceded by a later one that authorized a higher strength ceiling. The Guard Regiments apparently always had a larger establishment perhaps because with their special status it was considered important to keep them at full strength - thus the extra numbers.

How does this match up with your readings?
