A history of the 32nd (Cornwall) Light Infantry, proudly narrating its service throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. Originally formed as Marines under the ill-fated Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovel - later lost with his flgship in a wreck off the Cornish coast - the regiment’s first major action was the sudden capture and subsequent defence of the Rock of Gibraltar in 1703 during the War of the Spanish Succession. It later mounted raids on the west coast of France, was disbanded at the war’s end with the Peace of Utrecht in 1713, only to be promptly reformed in 1715 during the Jacobite emergency. In 1743, during the War of the Austrian Succession, the Regiment took part in the victorious battle of Dettingen against France - the last battle in which a British monarch ( George II) personally led his army. In 1745, during the same war, the Regiment fought at the battle of Fontenoy in which France’s Marshal Saxe defeated the allied forces of Britain, Hanover, Austria and Holland under the young Duke of Cumberland. The Regiment fought in Europe in the Seven Years’ War with France, but its finest hour probably came during the Peninsula War,' Having served as Marines during Nelson’s naval victory over the Danes at Copenhagen in 1807, the 32nd embarked for Spain and were present at the battles of Roleia and VImiera under Sir John Moore and in the retreat on and battle of Corunna in 1808. Returning to Spain in 1811, the 32nd were present at the Sieges of Roderigo and Burgois and the battles of Salamanca, Nivelle, Nive, and Orthes under Wellington. In 1815, the 32nd fought at the battle of Quatre Bras and Waterloo itself. In the mid- 19th century, the Regiment was posted to India where it was present at the Siege of Mooltan and the battle of Goojerat, before helping to quell the Indian Mutiny at Cawnpore and Lucknow. Later in the 19th century it saw service in Egypt.. The author, Col. Swiney, has gallantlyu filled the gaps caused by the repeated disappearence of regimental records with the diaries and recollections of brother officers. The book is plentifully illustrated with ten fine colour plates showing the evolution of the regimental uniform; notes on its costume and equipment; ten black and white pictures, and fifteen appendices on such interesting subjects as the regiment’s VC holders, its roll of officers, and biographies and memoirs of its colonels and officers. An unusually full and complete account of a distinguished unit.
