Biography of Officers

Biographies of  Officers Who Served in the Regiment During the Peninsula and Waterloo Campaign.

N.BAs a note, it may be helpful when reading the following biographies to know that the Tenth Dragoons clothed and equipped as a “Hussar” regiment from 1806. However, although 1806 has hitherto been fixed as the year in which the Tenth became hussars, there can be no doubt that, as early as 1803, the regiment was clothed in this manner, as the Clothing Regulations at the Record Office, for that year, show the issue of hussar dress to the Tenth, but no other regiment:-

Clothing Regulations 22nd April 1803   For 10th Light Dragoons

“Once every four years – 1 pelisse, 1 dress jacket, 1 hussar cap,  Once every eight years  – 1 sash

(Sd.)  Jas. Pulteney

As has already been stated, great latitude was given to the colonels in the dress of their regiments, and the Prince Regent, in the first instant clothed his own regiment as hussars, the 7th, 15th and 18th Light Dragoons following his example in 1805. Vide Cannon’s Records of these regiments. It was not until 18th April 1811 that the Warrant was published giving official sanction to all four regiments to be equipped and clothed as hussars, dating from the 25th April 1807. This order was signed “In the name and on behalf of His Majesty. Approved. (Sd.) George P. R. The Tenth therefore was the first regiment of English hussars to be formed in this country.

 GENERAL SIR JOHN SLADE, BART., G. C. H. Entered the service on the 10th May, 1870, as a Cornet in the 10th Dragoons, and became second Lieutenant-Colonel in that regiment on the 29th April, 1795. On the 18th October 1798, he exchanged into the Royal Dragoons obtaining the command, and continued with it till May 1830, when he was placed upon the staff as a Brigadier. In the month of May 1860 he was removed from the staff of England to that of Ireland, and was appointed to the command of the cavalry in Dublin. This he held till the 14th August 1808, when he was appointed to a Brigadier of infantry ordered on foreign service, consisting of the 3rd Battalion of the Royals, 2nd Battalion of the 21st, and the 2nd Battalion of the 81st, and embarked at Cork in the following September, under the command of Lieutenant-General Sir David Baird. The transports put into Falmouth, when orders met the Brigadier-General to repair to Portsmouth, and to take command of the 7th, 10th and 15th regiments of Hussars. It was here that the Prince of Wales took the sabre which he wore at his side and gave it to the Brigadier, with his hussar jacket and pelisse. On the 8th November he landed at Corunna. The Brigadier-General continued in command of the Hussar Brigade until the army re-embarked when he acted a volunteer at the short but sharp affair of Corunna, where he was in conversation with Sir David Baird at the time that officer received the wound which made it necessary to amputate his left arm. Sir John Hope, in his official letter giving an account of the action, dated H. M. S. “Audacious” off Corunna, 16th January 1809, writes thus: “I was indebted to Brigadier-General Slade during the action for a zealous offer of his personal services, although the cavalry was embarked.” On the 25th February the Brigadier-General was again placed on the Irish staff, and remained in Ireland till the 17th August following, when he was placed once more upon the staff in Spain. He was appointed to the command of a brigade of cavalry consisting of the Royals and the 14th regiment of Light Dragoons. During Messena’s retreat from before the lines of Lisbon the Brigadier-General had his horse shot under him, and was obliged to ride a troop horse during the remainder of the day. At this time the French General Montbrun advanced from Ciudad Rodrigo with 4,000 men, and drove back the light division, under the command of General Crawford. Brigadier-General Slade had only 300 to 400 men to oppose them, and for the gallant manner in which he performed his duty he was mentioned in the despatches of Sir Brent Spencer. In June 1813, in consequence of Major-General Clinton being given the local rank of Lieutenant-General in Spain, and General Slade being senior to that officer, he was ordered home. The Major-General was again placed upon the staff in Ireland, where he remained until the 24th August 1814, when he was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant-General. On the 20th July 1831 Lieutenant-General Slade was appointed to the colonelcy of the 5th Dragoon Guards, and in the September following His Majesty King William was graciously pleased to create him a baronet in reward for his services in the Peninsula, and shortly after made him a Knight Grand Cross of the Royal Hanoverian Guelphic Order. He was appointed equerry to H. R. H. The Duke of Cumberland in the year 1779 on the formation of His Royal Highness’s household. He was honoured three times with the thanks of Parliament. He received the gold medal and clasp for Corruna and Fuentes d’Onore, the silver medal and two clasps for Sahagun and Busaco. Sir John Slade died at Monty’s Court on the 13th August 1859, aged ninety-seven, and was buried at Norton Fitzwarren, near Taunton.

LIEUTENANT-GENERAL SIR GEORGE QUENTIN, K. C. B. received his first appointment in the 10th Light Dragoons as cornet on the 25th February 1793. He was afterwards appointed Ridingmaster, an office which he discharged much to the satisfaction of H. R. H. The Prince Regent, with whom he was a great favourite. He served as Major of the 10th during the campaign in the Peninsula, 1808-9, and was present at the action of Benevente, for which he afterwards received the silver medal with one clasp.

Quentin

Quentin

He commanded the Regiment in the Peninsula campaign from 25th July 1813 until the end of the war in 1814, and was awarded the gold medal and clasp for the battles of Orthez and Toulouse. He served also in the campaign of 1815, and commanded the Regiment at Waterloo until severely wounded. He received the Waterloo medal, Companion of the Bath, and was afterwards made a K. C. B. He was appointed A. D. C. to the Prince Regent in 1811, promoted Major-General in 1825, and Lieutenant-General in 1838. He was well known as an admirable horseman, and for his remarkably up-right figure. He died in 1851, upwards of eighty years of age.

COLONEL JOHN GREY, who was born at Buckworth, in Northumberland in December 1787, joined the 3rd Light Dragoons in 1805. After serving abroad for some years he was brought into the 10th Hussars as Captain in 1814. He proceeded with his regiment to Belgium in 1815, and after the battle of Quatre Bras was employed on outpost duty, and has received the credit for being the first to discover and report the retreat of the Prussians from Ligny. He was present at the battle of Waterloo, and there wounded, but rejoined the Regiment and served during the occupation of France by the Allies. He received the Waterloo medal. In 1821 he was promoted to a majority in the Scots Greys, which regiment, four years later he commanded. He sold out in 1839, and died 21st December, 1842.

MAJOR-GENERAL CHARLES PALMER joined the 10th Light Dragoons as cornet on the 17th May, 1796; was promoted after three year’s service as subaltern, to the rank of captain and became major in 1805. He was appointed A. D. C. to the Prince Regent in 1811. He proceeded to Spain in command of the Regiment in 1813, and remained in that position until the return of Colonel Quentin. He took a most distinguished part during the advance of the army through the Pyrenees and in the battles of the South of France, and earned the name of the most forward cavalry officer. After the peace in 1814 he retired on half pay, was promoted colonel, and on the 27th May 1825, became a major-general. After this he sold his commission and retired from the army, and sat in Parliament for some years. He died on the 17th April 1851.

In 1798 LORD ROBERT MANNERS entered the army as cornet in the 10th Light Dragoons, at the age of seventeen. In 1808 he proceeded with his regiment to Portugal as a captain, and took part in the campaign under Sir John Moore, and was present with it in the affair at Benevente. He was employed on the staff in the Walcheren expedition of 1809, and was present at the siege of Flushing. In this campaign he acted as A. D. C. to Lieutenant-General the Earl of Chatham, commanding the forces. He became Major in 1810; the following year he was promoted to a lieutenant-colonelcy in the 2nd foot, and commanded that regiment at the battle of Fuentes d’Onore. On the 2nd July 1812 he was placed in command of the 23rd Light Dragoons, but on that regiment being disbanded after the peace in 1814, he was brought back to his old regiment, the 10th Hussars, as lieutenant-colonel and second in command. He was present at the battle of Waterloo, and on the commanding officer, Colonel Quentin, being wounded early in the day, he took the command and lead the regiment in the decisive charge at the close of the battle. For this he received the companion of the Bath and Waterloo medal. Lord Robert himself received a slight bayonet wound on the day of Waterloo, but no official record was made of it, and he did not bring it to notice. In 1819 Lord Robert retied on half pay, was promoted colonel in 1821, major-general in 1830, and this closed his military career. He sat in Parliament as member for Leicestershire from 1806 to 1835. He was a fine horseman and an excellent sportsman. There is an admirable portrait of Lord Roberts on horseback in hunting-dress painted by Fernsley, at Belvoir Castle. An engraving of this picture is also in the possession of the officers of the 10th Hussars, and is hung in the anti-room of their mess. He is galloping with the heel well down, the stirrup touching the ball of the foot, the figure upright, the right hand holding the hunting whip, in which is set an eye-glass to his eye. An old brother officer describes him as “as distinguished for his courtesy and geniality in the camp as for his gallantry in the field. He was regarded as an excellent specimen of a commanding officer. In private life he was a high-minded man, a faithful friend, an agreeable companion and a thorough sportsman.” He died on the 15th November 1835.

LORD CHARLES MANNERS joined the 10th Light ~Dragoons on the 7th February 1798, and served with it until he became major in 1808. He was present with his regiment during the campaign under Sir John Moore, and received the silver medal with clasp for Benevente. He was employed in the Walcheren expedition in 1809. He was Aide-de-Camp to the Duke of Wellington from 1811 until the army entered Madrid in 1812. He was then placed in command of the 3rd Light Dragoons, and remained present with that regiment until the war closed in 1814. During this last campaign Lord Charles was nearly taken prisoner, having entered the French line by error, and approached the enemy’s piquet too closely. On being pursued he put his mare at a wide stream, and being mounted on a hunter he had received only a few days before from England, and knowing her jumping qualities, he knew he might safely trust her to carry him safely over. On landing on the other side he took off his cap and said “Adieu Messieurs” and rode to his own lines. He heard the clicking of the French carbines, and the commanding officer’s voice calling out “Non, ne tirez pas.” He met with an accident in this campaign, causing a wound which, perhaps, cannot be better described than by giving a copy of a letter from the duke of Wellington to his Mother, the duchess of Rutland, now in the possession of the Duke of Rutland at Belvoir Castle. This letter also shows the thoughtful kindness of the great Duke:-

I don’t know whether Lord Charles will be able to write to you by this occasion, notwithstanding that he is quite well, in consequence with a little accident he met with yesterday. We were pursuing the enemy after the action of the 22nd, and, having by accident lost his sward on the preceding night, he was taking one from a Frenchman who was a prisoner; while in this act a Dragoon of the 11th, believing that he was a Frenchman, cut him over the shoulder and gave him a slight wound. He is, however, quite well, and has been constantly with me since that time and, indeed, would not know that he was wounded if it was not necessary to keep his arm in a sling.

I have the honour to be your Grace’s Most obedient and faithful humble servant

(Sd.) WELLINGTON

He received the gold medal and three clasps for Salamanca, Vittoria, and Toulouse. He was not present at Waterloo, but in command of his regiment, joined the army in Paris, and remained there during the occupation. He was appointed Aide-de-camp to the Prince Regent in 1817. He was promoted major-general in 1825, was created a K. C. B., became lieutenant-general in 1838, and general in 1854. Lord Charles sat in Parliament for some years as member for Cambridgeshire, until the Reform Bill, when he was defeated. His constituents presented him with a magnificent gilt candelabrum, which is now an heirloom at Belvoir Castle He succeeded his brother Robert in 1835 as member for Leicestershire, and held his seat until 1852. He died on the 25th May 1855.

LIEUTENANT-COLONEL GEORGE JAMES ROBARTS, C. B. Was appointed cornet in the 23rd Light Dragoons on the 8th December 1803. He joined Hompesch’s Mounted Rifles on the 9th December 1803 and the next month was transferred as a captain to the 10th Light Dragoons. He was employed as a Deputy- Assistant Adjutant-General with the army under Sir John Moore in 1809, and was present for all the actions at that campaign and at the battle of Carruna. In 1811 he was promoted major, and proceeded to Spain with the regiment in 1813and was in command at the affair at Morales de Toro on the 2nd June. For this he was promoted lieutenant-colonel. He was present at Vittoria in command of the Tenth, for which he received the gold medal and became a Companion of the Bath. He was present for several actions in the Pyrenees. Lieutenant-Colonel Robarts retired on half pay in 1814. He sat in Parliament for some years, and died in 1829.

MAJOR THE HON. FREDRICK HOWARD served in the campaign in the South of France in 1814, and was present with the 10th Hussars at the battles of Orthez and Toulouse. He accompanied the Regiment to Belgium in 1815, and was killed at Waterloo at the head of his squadron when charging a square of the French Imperial Guard. He was buried at the time on the field, but afterwards he body was conveyed to England, and finally laid at his home, Castle Howard in Yorkshire. His memory has been perpetuated in verse by his kinsman, Lord Byron.[1]

COLONEL ROBERT ARNOLD was brought into the Tenth as a lieutenant from the 16th Light Dragoons. He had seen much active service in the Peninsula, was wounded at the storming of Badajos with the Grenadiers of the 4th Regiment, and was afterwards at the battle of Vitoria with the 16th Dragoons. He accompanied the Tenth to Belgium, and at Waterloo took part with Major Howard’s squadron in the charge on the Imperial guard. He received a musket ball through the lungs as well as a gunshot wound in the forearm. He was promoted to be captain in 1818, and to the majority of the Tenth in 1825. He was appointed to the command of his original regiment, the 16th Lancers, in 1826, and proceeded to India. In 1838 he commanded a brigade of cavalry which formed part of the force that proceeded to Afghanistan under Sir John Keene and was present at the capture of Ghuznee and the occupation of Cabul. He died on the 20th August 1839, at Cabul, and was buried in the Armenian burial-ground at that place.

MAJOR-GENERAL TAYLOR, C. B., entered the army in 1804, receiving a commission in the Carabiniers. In 1805 he went to the Mediterranean as D. A. A. G. under Sir James Craig. In 1807 he received the appointment of Military Secretary to the Governor-General of India (Lord Minto) and remained in that country for seven years. During this period – in 1812 – he took part in the expedition to Java as A. D. C. to General Gillespie. In 1814 he returned to England, and shortly afterwards was appointed to a troop in the Tenth Hussars, went with them to Flanders, and took part in the Waterloo campaign. He was on piquet on the morning of the 18th June, 1815, with his squadron on the extreme left of the Allied army, and it was to him that a Prussian staff officer, patrolling, brought the report of the advance of Blucher. This important intelligence Captain Taylor conveyed himself with the greatest despatch to the Duke of Wellington. At the close of the battle his squadron was engaged in the pursuit subsequent to the repulse of the French Guard. By the death of Major Howard in the action he obtained the majority of the regiment and a brevet lieutenant-colonelcy. He went on half pay in 1825, but, the following year was appointed Commandant of the Cavalry Riding Establishment at St John’s Wood, which appointment he held until 1831. In 1833 he became Groom of the Bedchamber to His Majesty King William IV, and in 1837 was appointed Lieutenant-Governor of the Royal Military College, Sandhurst; in 1853 Colonel of the 17th Lancers. He received the silver medal and clasp for Java, the Waterloo medal and Companion of the Bath. He died on the 8th January 1854

GENERAL SIR HENRY WYNDHAM K. C. B., joined the army in1806as ensign in the 31st Regiment but was transferred the following month to the Foot Guards. In 1808 Lieutenant Wyndham proceeded to Portugal, and was A. D. C. to the duke of Wellington at the battles of Vimiera and Rorica. He was A. D. C. TO Sir John Moore during the campaign of 1808-9, and brought home despatches after the battle of Corruna. He also escorted as prisoner to England the French General Lefevre. He was promoted a captain into the 71st Regiment in June 1809, and in July was transferred to a troop in the Tenth Hussars. Captain Wyndham was employed in the Peninsula during the campaign of 1811 in the Portuguese Cavalry and was present at the battle of Albuera. In 1813 he served with his regiment and was present at the brilliant affair at Morales del toro. At the battle of Vittoria in the subsequent pursuit, he took a prominent part with his squadron, as has already been mentioned. He was also present with the 10th Hussars throughout the battles of the Pyrenees, until promoted a major in the 60th regiment. He became a lieutenant-colonel in the “Dillon’s” regiment on the 20th January 1814, a captain and lieutenant-colonel in the Coldstream Guards in July of the same year. At the battle of Waterloo he took part with his regiment in the defence of Hougoumont. When the gates of that farmhouse were forced by the French, he assisted in expelling them, and with three other of the Coldstreams closed the gates upon the enemy. He was severely wounded in the battle, and afterwards, when lying in Brussels, there was some intention of amputating his arm, but he would not allow this to be done without first consulting the doctor of his old regiment. Dr Jenks of the Tenth Hussars was sent for, who gave it as his opinion that the operation was not necessary, so it was not carried out, and the arm was saved. Sir Henry Wyndham never ceased to remember his debt of gratitude, and Dr. Jenks mentions in his diary that for many years afterwards, when he was a candidate for surgeon at Brighton Hospital, General Wyndham came a long journey on Derby Day to record his vote for him. On the 11th July 1816, Lieutenant-Colonel Wyndham was appointed to the command of the 19th Lancers, and this he held until the regiment was disbanded, and in 1821 went on half pay. On the retirement of Sir George Quentin in 1824, he was selected for the command of the Tenth Hussars. On the 27th May 1825 he became a brevet colonel and aide-de-camp to the King. He commanded the cavalry in Portugal in the expedition in 1827 under Sir William Clinton. In 1833 he retired from the Tenth, and was placed on half pay. He became a major-general in 1837, commanded the Dublin district from 1843 to 1846, promoted a lieutenant-general in November 2846,appointed colonel of the 11th Hussars on the 19th November 1847, and promoted general in 1854. He was created K. C. B. and received the war medal with four clasps – Rorica, Vimiera, Albuera, and Vittoria – also the Waterloo medal and the Spanish medal for Albuera. He died on the 2nd August 1850.

DOCTOR JENKS became assistant surgeon of the Tenth Hussars in 1812. He embarked in 1814 with a squadron proceeding from the depot at Brighton to join the Headquarters, serving with the army in the Peninsula. He accompanied this squadron in its march through the Pyrenees and the South of France until at length the regiment was reached a few days after the battle of Orthez. He was present during the remaining actions of the campaign and at the battle of Toulouse. After the declaration of peace he marched with the Tenth through France and embarked with it for England at Boulogne. He was present with the regiment at the battle of Waterloo, and owing to his excellent arrangements the wounded officers and men of the Tenth were well housed and cared for in Brussels. Dr. Jenks, after retiring from the service, lived at Bath until a ripe old age, and to the last took the greatest interest in his old regiment, and contributed largely by his notes to these memoirs.

COLONEL JOHN GURWOOD, C. B., entered the army as ensign in the 52nd foot on the 30th March 1808. He served in the Peninsula from that year until 1812. At the attack at Ciudad Rodrigo in 1811 he received a wound in the skull from a musket ball, from the effects of which he suffered for the rest of his life. Having taken the Governor of that place, General Banier, prisoner, he was presented by the duke of Wellington with his sword. In July 1812 he was transferred to the 9th Lancers as a captain. He served during the remainder of the war in Spain as brigadier-major to the Household Cavalry. He was present at the battles of Vittoria, Nivelle, Nive, Orthez and Toulouse. He was transferred to the Tenth Hussars in 1814, and served with that regiment throughout the campaign of 1815, and was again severely wounded at the battle of Waterloo. He was promoted to a majority in 1817, lieutenant-=colonel in 1827, and colonel in 1841. He was private secretary to the Duke of Wellington, and will always be remembered in connection with his great chief as compiler of the Wellington Despatches. He died in 1845.

LIEUTENANT-COLONEL CHARLES WOOD was gazetted to the 52nd Light Infantry on the 16th March 1809. He proceeded at once to Portugal and joined his regiment at Ruxillo, as the army was falling back after the battle of Talavera. He served throughout the following campaign with the Light division, was present at the battle of Coa, and was wounded when carrying the King’s colour of the 52nd at Busaco. He was present at the battle of Fuentes d’Onore. In 1811 he was A. D. C. to General Robert Craufurd, and was with him At his death at the storming of Ciudad Rodrigo. He was appointed Deputy Assistant Adjutant-General at the Headquarters of the Duke of Wellington, and was present at the capture of Badajos, the battle of Salamanca, and the siege of Burgos. On the 17th September 1812, he was promoted a captain in the 68th Foot. In 1813 Captain Wood accompanied Lord Stewart to Germany as A. D. C. and afterwards took part with the Prussians in the campaign against the French. He was present at the battles of Gross-Beeren, Donnewitz, Wittemberg, and Leipsic, when the French, under Napoleon were totally defeated by the Allies. On this occasion, for his report on the evening of the 18th October that the French were retiring, and for saving a Prussian General and his staff from being capture, he was decorated by the King of Prussia with the military order of merit. After this victory he was present at all the subsequent engagements in France, and finally entered Paris in 1814. In July 1813 he had been posted to the 18th Hussars but he did not join them, and was transferred to the 10th Hussars in November 1814. He proceeded with his regiment to Belgium in 1815 and took part in the Waterloo campaign. When in command of a piquet on the 17th June he was one of the first to discover the retreat of the Prussians from Ligny, and he immediately reported this circumstance to the Duke of Wellington. He was severely wounded at the head of his troop on the 18th at Waterloo. The following letter was written by Lord Stewart (afterwards marquis of Londonderry) to Colonel Wood on this occasion:-

HAMBERG. July 3, 1815

It was only this minute from a letter from young Paget at Brussels that I hear of our young hussar’s[2] wound. Thank heaven he is doing well. I must envy him being winged on such a day. I am sure now the danger is over you will glory at it, and that his majority will be easy now. I am quite miserable to be out of this and not with my old friends. I am painfully anxious about Harris[3] who, I hear, is in great danger. Dashwood was also wounded. Every one of my old staff.

(Sd.) Stewart

After the peace he was appointed brigadier-major on the staff at the Northern district, Pontefract. Colonel Charles Wood to the end of his life displayed an unabated interest in his old regiment. He made several presents to the officers’ mess, which are still much valued. Among them are pictures of old officers and uniforms, the Wellington Despatches, the Life of Ziethen, and other interesting books. He died on the 13th December 1877, at the age of eighty-seven.

CAPTAIN WILLIAM SLAYTER SMITH entered the army as ensign on the 25th December 1806. He exchanged to the 13th Light Dragoons on the 12th February 1810 and was transferred to the Tenth Hussars 12th November 1814. He served in the Peninsula from February 1810; was present on the left of the position at Busaco, and was with his regiment while it was covering the retreat of the army through the lines at Lisbon. He received a sabre cut in the head and a pistol shot through the body in the celebrated charge made by the 13th Light Dragoons at Campo Mayor, when two squadrons overthrew 880 French cavalry. Lieutenant Slayter Smith returned home on account of his wounds and went out again in 1812, and was engaged in a variety of minor affairs. On one occasion, whilst on piquet, he was left without support for forty-eight hours, but succeeded in keeping his position in presence of D’Eleron’s Corps; during this time he received a carbine shot wound and had his horse shot under him. He returned to England in consequence of ill health, and joined the senior department of the Royal Military Academy in October 1813, where he remained till the Tenth went to Belgium in 1815. Lieutenant S. Smith was present at the cavalry actions as the army fell back from Quatre Bras on the 17th June, during which he was taken prisoner but soon made his escape. After Waterloo he commanded a small party of observation, and whilst so engaged he took General Lauriston prisoner and conveyed him, by desire of Sir Hussey Vivian, to the Duke of Wellington. Lieutenant Smith after this was sent to the Headquarters of Blucher, making constant reports o Sir H. Vivian on the movements of the Prussian army. Captain Slayter Smith died at Rippon in 1865, aged seventy-two, after long service as Adjutant of the Yorkshire Hussars.

CAPTAIN ELLIS HODGSON served for many years in the 10th Hussars, and took part with it in the Waterloo campaign. In 1820, when the regiment was quartered in Scotland, he was employed in command of a detachment of his own regiment as well as some Yeomanry against a large body of rioters. On this occasion he was wounded and in recognition of his conduct he was appointed to a troop in the 3rd Dragoons. He was living in York in 1861-2, when his old regiment was stationed there, and a cordial reception was accorded to him on his coming to the barracks.

LIEUTENANT ANTHONY BACON commenced his service in the 16th Light Dragoons, and was transferred to the Tenth in 1814. He proceeded to Belgium with his regiment in 1815, and was severely wounded at the battle of Waterloo. In after years he took service with the Portuguese government, and held the rank of lieutenant-general.

In addition to the above slight sketches of the careers of officers of the Tenth, who took part in the Peninsular and Waterloo campaigns, many names might be added. Some have already been mentioned in the pages of this book[4]; of the services of others it has been found impossible to find details. Amongst them the following may be alluded to as having earned distinction either in their military careers or in civil life as members of Parliament, country gentlemen, sports gentlemen, magistrates and so forth:-
