Commanded a light cavalry brigade under Rowland Hill in Wellington's army at the Battle of the Nive, later fought a brilliant action at Croix d'Orade where he was very severely wounded.

Manuscript L.S., 2pp. legal folio, 'Royal Hospital', Dublin, Nov. 10, 1832 to an adjutant general.

Signature is always required, unless other arrangements are made. Handling and shipping charges will be added to the invoice in one entry. Buyers should be aware that large, framed, fragile or odd shaped items can incur substantial shipping and packing charges.
