in consequence of the missive, An interesting theory, penned by Kathleen Glancy
The militia were obviously camped very close to Meryton at the onset since they had to train. Funny we don't see much evidence of them around all those fields etc, so where were they camped? The officers seemed to have quite a bit of time to socialise around the village go to parties and balls etc and strut around in their "regimentals". Maybe Darcy and Bingley dined with them to take them on at cards and Billiards. Tough life this they all have. (-:
Book doesn't tell us, but can't be much going on in London or Bath as Arthur Wellesley might not be back from Belgium yet. With Napoleon beaten and no invasion of our shores threatening, this might be why the militia have time on their hands?
