in consequence of the missive, Nothing definite on Denny's age, penned by kathleen (elder)
A (younger) newly-commissioned Denny would, of course, need a set of Regimentals. If you had the money, go for the best taylors - where else but London. Whilst there, he might as well see see what else the "town" offers that ____shire doesn't.
A cash-strapped Wickham happens to be in the city at the same time, mooching about for whatever might come along. He spots a well-dressed 16/17-year old, obviously not a local, with a pocket full of cash. He strikes up a conversation, admires him for taking up the defense of the realm, and offers to show him a few of the "best places" (on Denny's tab of course - "sorry old fellow, a bit skint this week, you know how it is").
Denny finds a mentor, Wickham a source for money, and sees what opportunities the status of a redcoat and epaulette might offer.
Just a thought,
