This forum has a Search facility (top right of page under 2/95th Rifles Forum title).
Sadly it is not a particularly great one and takes a bit of getting used to.
The word you type into the search panel may produce a wide range of topics in a results page - rarely with your chosen search in the title! Do not dismay!
Your word search has brought up topics in which your word is in the post threads themselves and not necessarily in the post's title, eg; Type in 'tin' and you may get posts such as 'Cartridge Box', 'Knapsacks' or 'Musket balls' - tin compartments in a pouch, mess tin on top of a knapsack, a musket ball struck my mess tin...Basically, any thread where the word tin has been mentioned!
You get the picture. Basically the forum is a mine of information and the search engine may take you on a merry dance - but one we hope you'll find fascinating! However...
The forum is often used as a testing ground for theories and as such sometimes reflects the development of our knowledge of the 95th and the soldier of Wellington's Army. With this in mind, some of the ideas and research may be out of date, partial or disproved. Be aware that not everything reflects current practice or thought.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
