31st (Huntingdonshire) Regiment of Foot

The 31st took part in minor engagements in the West Indies, the Netherlands, Sicily and Egypt. In 1805 a 2nd battalion was again formed. In 1808 the 2nd Battalion landed in Portugal, and took part in the Peninsular War, including the Battle of Talavera in 1809, Albuera in 1811, Vittoria and Nivelle in 1813, and Orthes in 1814.[1] The 31st was reduced to a single battalion regiment in 1814 when the two battalions merged in Sicily.
