Lt. Dugald MacFarlane

Just came across this account of the service of a 95th Officer who joined in 1811 and later commanded a company of the 3rd Batt at Waterloo.
He retired to New Zealand on half pay.

Cant find any mention of him on using "search" on the Forum.

Eddie can you also copy this into the Archive under 'Riflemen who served 1800-1816' please.

Can you also copy and paste some of the info incase the link dies.

Cheers

Interesting account of Colbourne's wheel as a a 'crescent formation'.

Love it Eddie. Now if you can just find a photograph of him in his 95th kit I will be really impressed.

Ooo!-Ooo! Got a name connection here!!

MacFarlane married a Drummond. The family of a Gen John Drummond - who served as a Lieut. in the Coldstream through Peninsula & Waterloo - had a military collection that included a ball-pouch with some tools reputed to have belonged to the 95th.

AND - there's a John Drummond in the Macfarlane clan genealogy also:

Suppose he could be a Lt at 17?
