Largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in UK. See our website andrewbottomley.com. Ref 2847. A rare 1761 dated document to advance the sum of £500 to Captain Alex Wood of the 98th regiment of foot. Signed by His Excellency Studholme Hodgson Colonel of the Fifth Regiment of Foot, Major General and commander in Chief of His Majesty’s Forces. Military Expedition To Belle Ille 1761 - Document to advance to Captain Alex, Wood of the 98th Regiment of Foot the Sum of Five Hundred Pounds. Authorized by “His Excellency Studholme Hodgson Col. Of the Fifth Regiment of Foot. Major General and commander in Chief of His Majesty’s Forces employed on an Expedition” (The capture of Belle Ille off the coast of Brittany). Also signed by Studholme Hodgson. Interesting manuscript document, size 8” × 12½”. The island was held by British troops from 1761, until 1763, when it was returned to France as part of the Peace of Paris. Field Marshal Studholme Hodgson (1708 – 1798) Served at the Battle of Fontenoy during War of the Austrian Succession and at Culloden. He went on to command the British expedition which captured Belle Île in June 1761 during the Seven Years' War. Captain Alexander Wood (1738-1769) His independent company was amalgamated 1758 into the 98th Foot (Grey's) and fought at this Belle Ille off the coast of France. We have no idea what this sum of money was for at that time, it was a great deal of money and one of our avid historians reading this website will no doubt be able to let me know what the sum of £500 would likely have been used for by the British Army in 1761. Ref 2847. If you wish to purchase this item please visit our website andrewbottomley.com where you can pay by credit/debit card or bank transfer at no extra charge. Established 1968.Read more
