Burma, 1842 - "In a humid and disease ridden environment British troops - such as these Light Company men of the 38th Foot - fought in uniforms which were no different from the summer review order of England. Rangoon became "one vast hospital ... it was as gloomy a scene as could be conceived, to see our soldiers crawling about on all sides, in their hospital clothing, ghastly as ghosts." In the collection of 3rd Battalion The Mercian Regiment (Staffords)" Art by Rob Chapman
