Report from His Majesty’s Commissioners for Inquiring into the System of Military Punishments in The Army 1836

Report from His Majesty’s Commissioners for Inquiring into the System of Military Punishments in The Army 1836 
A vast volume containing the official 1836 report presented to Parliament on military punishments in the British Army during and after the Napoleonic Wars. There is evidence from senior officers, NCOs and men recording the sometimes savage penalties (flogging, branding and hanging) imposed and their efficacy. A must for those seriously interested in the Napoleonic Wars.
This rare and fascinating vast official volume contains the detailed minutes of evidence in which various senior officers, regimental officers, NCOs and men, record their experiences and views on punishments, with examples of various cases (including some quite barbaric punishments: excessive flogging, branding for desertion etc.) There is much interesting detail on the nature of punishments in the Army during and after the Napoleonic Wars as well as the opinions of various figures on the efficacy and improvements to military penalties. Includes examples from the East Indies and elsewhere.
