Re: McGrigor’s “Wellington’s Spies" & Leith Hay

Anthony,

I haven't seen anything that questions the reliability of Leith-Hay. I would highly recommend reading his memoirs, he had a very exciting life & has some interesting details with his intelligence gathering work & as ADC to Gen Leith, Hill & Wellington.

He does describe leading a squadron of Portuguese cavalry on a recconnoissance on the 26th Sept the day before Bussaco (p.162) which might be helpful to you.

I would be interested if you find anything that questions Leith-Hay's account.

Peter.
