George Foot started his military career in the Peninsula as a Lieutenant in the 82nd Foot, Prince of Wales’s Volunteers, having being involved in the initial struggles around Lisbon at Roliça and Vimiero in 1808, before the general action at Talavera in 1809. Interestingly, he transferred to the 2nd Battalion of Detachments for the rest of the War before being seriously wounded at the battle of the Pyrenees. His narrative is enlivened with an eye for detail both in the battles he fought in and the towns and villages that he and his foot-sore comrades tramped through.
