'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 willingness to act, which I have rarely met with in any other body of men ... and as for fighting they were [the] very devils.' Memoirs of John Shipp
Lieutenant, 87th Regiment, 1815-25
