Re: Quiberon Bay

Scores of French emigre units took part in this abortive invasion attempt; many of them contained `closet Republicans` who enlisted only to escape the POW camps. As soon as they were landed at Quiberon, many of these deserted to the French and betrayed the allied plans; the operation descended rapidly into bloody farce. The Journal of the Society for (British) Army Historical Research contains details of all these units, their uniforms, strengths and fate in 1795, but I have never seen a detailed OOB for that operation.
