B. Wellington’s First Battle Errata
(1) The National Archive references for references 53,69,146,153 & 154 should read WO71/168 not WO170/168. Furthermore, in reference 154, “Keen” should read “Kean”.

(2) Inside the front cover I have incorrectly named Arthur Wesley as “Sir” , when he was actually “the Honourable Arthur Wesley”.  The evolution of the great man’s name has created some discussion since my book was published and to help with this I am including a document based on his early Army List entries;

wellington-names-and-titles-army-list-entriesWellington’s name and titles from the Army List 1794-1805

(3) In the campaign map on page 10, the village of St. Oedenrode is incorrectly labelled as St. Oudenarde.

    C. Wellington’s First Battle References; Since completing the research for Wellington’s First Battle, I have discovered that Geert van Uythoven’s very useful website is no longer available and the references to it given in the book (i.e. references 16, 28, 87, 120 & 152) are not directly available at the addresses given.

    These references are reproduced in the following links;
