Chaaarlotte! It's the 49th of Foot!

Wales, no Hertfordshire, no, that was numbered 66th - Oh Devil! Na Ok, the Berkshire then, where the Hell came Charlotte in? Nevermind - It was formed 1744 in the War of Austrian Succession and after multiple re-branding and fused with others it became the 49th of Foot in 1751. In the American War of Independence it took part on White Plains (Huzzah!) later at Brandywine Creek and the subtle "night attack" at Paoli's Tavern (Italian Restaurants can be bad, sorry, Corsican).
