Orders, 15 August 1756


Parole: Success.

Winchester, Sunday, August 15th 1756.

As His Majestys declaration of War against the French King will be proclaimed to-morrow, the Soldiers will be excused from work—and are ordered to appear in the most decent and neat manner; and to be ready to attend at the Long-roll.1
