Lecture and Curry Lunch – The British Army in the Napoleonic Wars

Armchair Battlefield Tour – The British Army in the Napoleonic Wars

The British Army, once described by a (French) critic as being ‘a mob of flogged criminals led by coffee house fops’  in fact developed during the Napoleonic Wars into a finely honed killing machine.  It was the only professional, all volunteer army in Europe and this talk describes how it was recruited and trained, where its officers came from and how the purchase system worked.

The lecture is delivered by Major Gordon Corrigan MBE. Major Corrigan served in the 6th Gurkha Rifles and the Royal Gurkha Rifles. He is an acclaimed military historian who has published a number of books, and presented a number of TV series. He lectures widely, and conducts battlefield tours worldwide.

The Armchair Battlefield Tour is followed by a two-course curry lunch.
