The Training Ground: Regimental Services of British Army Generals 1793-1815

By Steve Brown

The following table, extracted from the service records of the leading British Generals of the era  summarises the periods in which they served as Lieutenant-Colonels in their respective regiments.

It provides an interesting glimpse into the background of the leading commanders of the era, and perhaps some insight into the popularity of certain units over others – also interesting is that hard-fighting units such as the 29th, 42nd, 45th and 95th generated fewer than the typical quota of future general officers.

There are a few stellar groupings – look at the 7th Hussars or 90th Foot for example.

This list of generals is not exhaustive; it has been limited to those who saw active service in the period 1793 to 1815. Quite a few ‘Desk Generals’ were excluded! However if you wanted to become a General, one thing was clear: Join the Guards...
