IT is just a century ago that England's wars, which had We j lin then been waged for over thirty years, in the East, the West, and in Europe, but always on Lands and Seas far distant from the British Isles, came to an end.
The Duke of Wellington, Commander-in-Chief, realising that the House of Commons would, as it had always done, on the conclusion of Peace, disband the Armyj prepared to face that eventuality. He recognised that the Auxiliary Departments, which he had organised, and perfected between 1810 and 1814, must be the first to disappear, and he designedly scattered the Three Arms by small detached units, in secluded barracks, to save them from extinction at the hands of Parliamentary Economists; he tried to
preserve a small army by hiding it.
