Re: New Orleans
Sir, your below point raised a question.

in the British army? I believe it was common in the navy to sell the
sailor's kit and the money collected would be forwarded to the his
widow or family. I am fully aware that in the navy there was no such
thing as enlisted uniforms and that the officers had to purchase
their outfits, so there would not be the issue of the clothing being
property of the Crown. Still, I guess I was under the impression
that the army would do the same thing.
- Many thanks to you Maurice for keep up the Navy participation in the event.
Always good to have navy involved in an amphibious operation!
