Portugal 1810:

"We were very badly off for shoes; but, by good, luck, discovered a quantity of leather in a tan-yard: Those who found it, helped themselves first, and were wasting it. The Colonel then ordered each man a pair of soles and heels, to be put up in his knapsack."

Journal Of A Soldier Of The 71st Regiment From 1806 to 1815" by Anon - "Thomas"  Pickles Partners Publishing 2011 (electronic)
