Notes

First edition. These eighteenth-century Army Lists are becoming harder to find. Bookplate of Ernest, Duke of Cumberland, fifth son of George III and Queen Charlotte. Ernest studied at the University of Göttingen and then trained in the Hanoverian Army, fighting "with courage in Flanders and the Netherlands against the French" (ODNB), commanding the Hanoverian light battalion of grenadiers at Villers-en-Cauchi in 1793, and seeing action at Tournai - where he was wounded - and Nijmegen in 1794. He regarded himself as a professional soldier, but after 1796 never again held command in the field, despite repeated efforts to obtain active service. On the death of his brother William IV in 1837, he ascended to the throne of Hanover.
