There you will find the adjutant on duty, said the official.
When the prisoners were landed a fortnight later Sir George Hill recognized Tone in the French adjutant-general's uniform.
"What division are you?" shouted an adjutant, riding up.
The words passed along the lines and an adjutant ran to look for the missing officer.
He was military agent in New Orleans in 1809-1810, was deputy quartermaster-general in April - July 1812, and was in active service in the War of 1812 as adjutant and inspector-general in the campaign against York (now Toronto), Canada, and in the attack on York on the 27th of April 1813 was in immediate command of the troops in action and was killed by a piece of rock which fell on him when the British garrison in its retreat set fire to the magazine.
