"I must confess I do love to be on duty on any kind of service with the Irish. There is a promptness to obey, a hilarity, a cheerful obedience and a willingness to act which I rarely met within any other body of men ... and as for fighting they were the very devils." Memoirs of John Shipp
Lieutenant, 87th Regiment, 1815-25
