Trant's position at Bussaco

Hi Caroline,

I also attempted a rough translation of João’s posting. Mine differs only slightly from yours in that I took the ultimate position of Trant to be FROM Sardão towards Buçaco ...

In 1810, still only Colonel: commanded a 3,000 strong force of Milicia; was sent to defend the passes between Moimenta da Beira and Régua; [and] later to watch the road to Boialvo from Mortágua; "assigned" to the forces of General Spencer, sent to Mealhada; eventually being posted to defend the “corridor” between Sardão and Buçaco.

Best wishes

Anthony
