    Hi all,

    The completion of the 2/48th just leaves about six more units to do to finish Wellesley’s army at Talavera. The regiments nickname gives a clue as to the pivotal role the 1st and 2nd battalions 48th foot played in the battle, with Wellington stating that the 48th saved the day at Talavera.

    Great stuff mate! The involvement of the 48th, the antecedent of the late Peter Edwards’ Regiment, the Royal Anglians, is what inspired him to write his brilliant account of that battle, and of course he gives the exploits of both battalions present full coverage!

    The Royal Anglian’s nickname is rather less inspiring – the eating irons! Although of course they are also know as ‘The Poachers’.
