MONMOUTHSHIRE LIGHT INFANTRY,
A ROLL OF THE OFFICERS AND THEIR SERVICES FROM THE PERIOD
OF EMBODIMENT TO THE CLOSE OF 1867.
SIR RICHARD GEORGE AUGUSTUS LEVINGE, BART.
“La gloire de l'armée Britannique lui vient, avant tout,
W. CLOWES & SONS, 14, CHARING CROSS.
Having passed many early happy years in H.M. 43rd Light Infantry, it was a matter of surprise to me as well as to others, that of so gallant and distinguished a Regiment no memoir existed. I have endeavoured, however inadequately, to supply the deficiency.
It has been with me a labour of love to compile the following records of “old corps” from sources, both published and private—too varied and manifold to enumerate-in all points, I believe, authentic. They claim no literary merit, but the “plain, unvarnished tale” will, I trust, be received and read with interest by all who have served or may serve in the Regiment.
November 1st, 1867.
