This book begins with the List of Officers of the Scotch Brigade as it first appeared in the Army List of 1795, three battalions with Francis Dundas (late 1st Foot Guards) as Colonel in Chief. Before this there had been three 94th Regiments of Foot. J.B.M. Frederick’s Lineage Book of British Land Forces 1660-1978 shows the regiment which is the subject of this book had started life in Dutch service as the Scots Brigade back in 1568 and was brought onto the English establishment in October 1794 as the Scotch Brigade. It was numbered 94th Foot in December 1802, was disbanded in December 1818 with officers remaining on half pay until the regiment was re-embodied in December 1823 as 94th Foot. Its first Battle Honour carried on the Colours was Seringapatam (1799), followed by eight more won in the Peninsula.
This is a valuable source for genealogists and medallists. The information given for each officer includes date of first commissioning and dates of subsequent promotions with any exchanges to or from other regiments, details of active service and medals received and, in many cases, date and place of death.
