Recruits, 1780 Featured Print

Recruits, 1780

Recruits, 1780.Engraving by Watson and Dickinson after W H Bunbury, 1780.This caricature was published during the American War of Independence (1775-1783). The war in America made enormous demands on British Army manpower. Here a recruiting officer and a non-commissioned officer line up new recruits outside an inn. Although the Army required able-bodied men, in times of shortage it would make do with whoever it could get. Many recruits were less than ideal material, as this caricature illustrates.Even so, the Government could not find enough recruits at home, and was forced to supply the shortfall by hiring Hessian (German) mercenaries. Date: 1780
