Initially British officials were reluctant to accept the offers of loyal
subjects to form fighting units but eventually the potential of a Provincial
corps was realized. Yet they never received the whole-hearted support of the
British regular army and this was a factor in their evental defeat. Nonetheless
the Provincial Corps served with distinction – even fighting against the Spanish
in Nicaragua and the Bahamas – and some remained in service for several more
years by relocating to Canada. This book examines their experiences in this
continental conflict and details their uniforms and equipment.
