Also to be found on google books and archive. While there is a mass of material on how the army was organised, paid and used there is also a lot on the social attitudes to the army. At Dunkirk, then still an English possession, there was also a regiment of guards Wentworth's and a number of foot and horse. The Scots regiment in French service Douglas regiment came over to England in 1661, but returned to French service in 1662 I have found no hard data unfortunately for this.

Tracing the regiments at Tangier is a bit more complicated. In addition, the forts possessed their own lighter artillery, as well as supplies of food and ammunition.

This book is just packed with fascinating details. Teviot consented, and following a banquet and formal cere-monies a peace was signed. But against an enemy with virtually no artillery and with no conception of how to use what they had, these blockhouses ought to have been sufficient for the defence of Tangier. Leaving the Lieutenant-Governor, John Fitzgerald, in command, Teviot took six months' leave in Scotland. This was too much and Guy land sent forward a herald to ask for a truce.

The precursors to the Buffs were still in Dutch service. It also has an easy to read narrative and is engaging, not your usual dry academic style often found when theses become books. The Tangier forts were no more than primitive blockhouses protected by wooden fences and ditches. The subject is very well researched and referenced, as one would expect. Only Fort Charles and Fort Anne had flanking bastions, whilst the rest of the forts were mere gun-platforms. Best of all is the chapter on Foreign Service.

A mist had blown in from the sea, and with the aid of a westerly wind the Moors set fire to the grass before Tangier, blinding the garrison artillery. A lot of them went to Tangier, or to fight with the Portuguese. In his absence, Fitzgerald continued to build the defence lines around Tangier. The Tangier Regiment, the future Queen's Regiment, was raised in October 1661, and specifically intended for garrison duties at Tangier. This was too much and Guy land sent forward a herald to ask for a truce. Only Fort Charles and Fort Anne had flanking bastions, whilst the rest of the forts were mere gun-platforms. The forts and redoubts were positioned between one quarter and one half mile from the city walls, so that the guns on the Upper Castle of Tangier and the artillery along the courtain were able to give supporting fire.
