Many thanks, Ron. Quite poignant really, by today's standards anyway. Probably still only in his 20's, an officer for 7 yrs., WIA in 1798, & died the following year. Probably never fully recovered from his wounds ?
If anybody knows his age, lineage, & place of birth, (apart from Scotland of course)I'd be interested to know. Building-up a dossier on combatants' details from the 1798 Ostend affair, with mixed success.
