Captain David Gregory 1809
This is a model of our five-times great grand father. We only found out about him last year, which was a big suprise as we hadn’t realised we had a military connection in the family let alone from the Napoleonic Wars. This wasn’t the only suprise, he served with the 45th (Nottinghamshire) regiment. We live and work in Nottingham but have no family roots here. The next suprise came when the day after we’d heard about David Gregory, we found his pistol for sale in America, inscribed with his name, rank and regiment….we had to buy it!
David served in the West Indies as well as the Peninsular War. His full service record will come with the figure when released.
