Within the "Jacobite Rebellions (1689 - 1746)", it is probably worth highlighting the "Battle of the Boyne (12/7/1690 = 1/7/1690 OS)".

The dates are wrong for "British-American War (1812)" or "The War of 1812 (1812-1814)". Actually, although the peace was signed 24/12/1814, because of the communications delay the Battle of New Orleans was fought in Jan 1815 and, after a crushing defeat, the British sailed away to attack Mobile, Alabama, where they'd taken the outer defences and were about to start the main assault when the news of peace arrived in Feb 1815.

The Indian Mutiny/1857 War of Indian Independence (1857-1858) is omitted. A significant conflict - more VCs were awarded here than in the Crimea.

The Russian Cival War (Oct 1918-Oct 1919). The C-in-C of the British forces intervening in this conflict would become CIGS and C-in-C Home Forces in 1939-1940, and later chose to be titled Baron Ironside of Archangel.

I have just been sat here wondering why so many of my men are not on the 1881 census - thanks to this list I now know they could be fighting in the Boer war. Do we know how to check that out - pretty pretty please? thanks Sue
