Hi, I am trying to research the actions of the 1/50th regiment of Foot during the Walcheren Expedition and am finding it rather difficult working out when they landed and on which island (Walcheren or South Beveland).
The order of battle of 28th July 1809 has them in Huntley’s 2nd division (in the Right Wing) as part of Dyott’s Brigade - which landed at South Beveland on August 8th
However the Regimental History of the 50th Regiment (by Arthur Evelyn Fyler) states that the 50th landed with Fraser’s Left Wing on Walcheren on August the 2nd, that they formed part of Major General Keith’s Brigade (I think he means Leith) and that it wasn’t until the 21st that they were reorganised into Dyott’s Brigade and moved over to South Beveland (at Ouderland and Overland”).
Is Mr Fyler wrong? Many Thanks
