Bennington? They were there. On the jagers, there has been some discussion about whether all of the ones shipped over were what they were purported to be, for some of the same reasons mentioned above. But,if you’re hurting for skirmishers. . .

I hadn’t heard about that.  Is this a case of the Landgrave of Hesse-Cassel duping the British government or was it that a load of guys turned up at the recruiting office claiming to be gamekeepers and nobody bothered to ask for references?
