[An officers notebook including various standing orders, mess rules, pay rosters and receipts for disbursements relating to the 66th Berkshire Foot in Canada, and the 62nd Wiltshire Foot elsewhere]. [Annapolis Royal, Halifax, England and elsewhere]. [s.n., 1799-1806]. Oblong 7 x 4-1/4 inches. 44 sheets with 88pp unnumbered with occasional evidence of excised leaves, the odd blank. Interleaved throughout with blotting paper. Contemporary limp reverse calf, with the attractive printed label 'Sold by John A. Burton, Military Stationer, No. 2, Barrack-Street, (Opposite the Fountain), Dublin' to FEP. With the ink inscriptions of 'R. Lloyd. Lieu. 66th Regiment Sept. 26 '97' and 'T.S. Lyle, Lieut. 66th, Port au Prince' to REP. A miscellaneous military notebook in the possession at least one officer serving in the 66th Berkshire Foot during its service in Canada, with 23pp of 'Standing orders' for the 66th regiment while at Annapolis Royal (Nova Scotia), and several notes of disbursements and receipts of monies, largely 1799/1800, in Halifax (Nova Scotia). The inscription of 'S.S. Lyle, Lieut. 66th, Port au Prince' suggests that the notebook was perhaps purchased from an Irish stationer prior to the 66th's short service in Haiti, 1796-8. Later notes (dated 1802 and 1806) include, rates of full and half pay, mess rules in Jersey and reference to the activities of the 62nd Wiltshire Foot. R. Lloyd and T.S. Lyle, who both inscribed this volume and are presumably likely candidates for ownership, are listed as Lieutenants in the 66th Foot in the 1800 Army List. The 66th (Berkshire) Regiment of Foot was deployed to moved to Nova Scotia in early 1799 and on to Newfoundland in May 1800 before returning home in October 1802 and again to Canada in August 1827 before returning home in October 1840 The 66th Berkshire Foot served in the West Indies and Canada during the early years of the Napoleonic wars, returning to England in October 1802.
