TitleLetter; Granville Vernon, Junior United Service Club, London, to 7th Earl of Sandwich.
DescriptionSends information sent by Lloyd about the recruits at Bedford. There are said to be 16 line recruits and 13 Militia recruits. The Militia recruits, when enlisted at the H.Q. of the Regimental District, do their drill as they enlist, and them come up with their Regiments as old hands. The total number of men in Bedford Barracks, that is, all the recruits and some men for duties and guards, cannot be more than 50. Other Brigade Depots are in the same way. Believes that there is a Mr. Reynolds in Huntingdonshire, whose son wishes to come to the Militia next year.
