Footnotes

  • Lieutenant-General Sir John Moore (1761-1809) was born in Glasgow. He joined the British Army in 1776 and fought in many battles during his career including the American War of Independence, and campaigns in Ireland, France, and Corsica. In 1808 he was posted to Spain at the start of the Peninsular War. He was mortally wounded by the French during the Battle of Corunna in 1809 but remained conscious long enough to be assured he had gained victory. A statue in Moore's memory was installed in Glasgow's George Square in 1819.
