Ken, this is a very interesting subject to me, but one with which I have very little familiarity. Thanks so much for sharing your understanding, hypotheses and sources. I look forward to more on this as you have time.
Would you mind very much clarifying what you said. Are you saying he wouldn't have been in the militia, but also not commanding a batalion that would fight on the continent? If so, then what might he have been a Colonel of?
Sorry if I'm being a little dense!
Given that he has all the time in the world, yet is conscientious, it's a little hard to square with him being in the Regulars at war at all. But maybe this is the Peace, or after Waterloo.
