      Try and get of Wellingtons Army by Sir Charles Oman. There is a good
      chapter on British army officers and the purchase system. It's
      published by Grenhill here in the UK and by Stackpole in the States.
      In it he states, "There was, throughout the war,(Peninsula) a
      perceptible proportion of officers who had risen from the ranks."
      I'll see what else I can find,
      All the best,
      Roger
