Note;   In Feb 1816 the 100th Reg.t was renumbered
            the 99th Reg't due to the fact that the 95th Reg't
            was removed from the Reg'ts of the line and
           formed the Rifle Brigade with the 5th Battalion
           of the 60th Reg't [The Reg'ts above the 95th
           dropped down one number]. This fact is not
           adopted locally as they were all disbanded
           in a few years
