Very fine condition. The 60th Foot was raised in New York City and Philadelphia under dispensation of 29 Geo.II, c.5, allowing commissions to foreigners to serve in the 60th but only in America. The regiment retained its title Royal American Regiment until 1824. There were originally four battalions and in that strength, the regiment fought at Louisbourg and Quebec, capturing both for its battle honours. The fifth battalion, of which A. Hennerhofer was a member, was raised in 1797 by dispensation 38 Geo.III, c.13 to serve as riflemen only in America. There were to be 17 officers and 300 men. They were the first to wear the rifleman?s green jacket and gave the regiment its present designation, the Royal Green Jackets. The Fifth Battalion served in the troubles in Ireland in 1798 and on the Peninsula from 1808-13. The fifth was disbanded in 1815, 400 of its men being sent to join the Second Battalion at Quebec. Today, the regiment carries on its battle honours Louisbourg, Quebec, Peninsula, Take Forts, Afghanistan, and Kandahar, to name a select few.
