78Th Highlanders At The Battle Of Jersey

Recommended Posts

The last two weeks we've been to Jersey (Channel Islands) for vacation and visited the Jersey Museum in St. Helier.

On Jan 6 1781 the French tried to take possession of Jersey but got beaten in a 15 minute battle. At that time the 78th Highlanders were stationed on the island.

here are some (grainy) pictures taken with the iPhone from the display.

I have always been interested in the history of the Highland regiments, methinks it's time to start loking for books to read.
