KGL Soldier's Story

Post  Captal on Thu Oct 13, 2016 9:31 pm

Interesting article. Apologies if already posted.

"In early 2015, the soldier's remains were identified as possibly being those of Friedrich Brandt, a member of the King’s German Legion, made up of German soldiers who fought with the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars."

I believe I heard this story via the NSD forum. I am curious to know if he has any living relatives.

Did a little more googling.  No living descendants. ID based on location, muster returns and the carved initials on the wooden butt.
