English Civil War

 

  • Grenadier Guards at Barrosa
    • Turning now to the southward we find the 2nd and 3rd battalions of the First Guard taking part in the long defence of Cadiz. At Barrosa, a brigade of Guards, including 3 companies of the 1st regiment, with other regiments, sought by a diversion to raise the siege, but the disappearance of the Spaniards left them in a false position, and with less than half the strength of the foe. "Now my lads," said General Graham in command, "there they are! Spare your powder but give them steel enough." The brilliant advance at once began, and the Guards crossing a deep hollow under heavy fire, ascended the hill in skirmishing order, and waged a long and desperate struggle with the enemy at the crest before he was finally overborne. (Excerpt From The Navy and Army Illustrated November 20th 1896 by John Leyland)
