British Infantry Regimental Depots 1804 – 1812

By Steve Brown

The following table, extracted from Army Lists and the London Gazette, shows the known locations of British army regimental depots in the period 1804 to 1812. ‘Depot’ in this instance refers to a regimental post for the marshalling of officers on leave or reporting for duty, stores, correspondence and suchlike, rather than a ‘headquarters’ or barracks per se. Many of the depots below existed whilst one or all battalions of the regiment in question were on overseas duty (Foreign Service). It is interesting to note that, whilst the home stations of the vast majority of British army regiments of the era pay lip service to their county allegiances, the depot locations do - in many instances - more or less follow county lines.

Geographical placenames in this table follow 19th Century county titles and locations, rather than 21st Century.
