] I would be interested in reading about the wives of enlisted men who lived with their husbands in the barracks or quarters.
Check the L&T Archives for some postings on this subject. I think I mentioned the following two books at the time, but if not here they are again.
Anthony Brett-James, Life in Wellington's Army, has a chapter devoted to the subject. [Sorry I don't have publishng info or ISBN handy.]
Brigadier F.C.G. Page, Following the Drum: Women in Wellington's Wars (London: André Deutsch Ltd., 1986) ISBN 0-233-97960-3
I remain, etc.
