|Dorset Volunteer Rangers
A subscription of £1425 10s was raised in Dorset in 1794 towards the cost of 'forming Bodies of Men for the Internal Defence of the Country, not liable to be drawn out, except in cases of actual Invasion or Commotion'. On 17 September 1794 the whole corps was reviewed by king George III under Maiden Castle, 'who returned them thanks, and expressed much pleasure at seeing them so alert and forward in their manoeuvres'. The muster roll of the Dorset Volunteer Rangers gives the full name and parish for each volunteer. 'These men clothed and horsed themselves entirely at their own expense, without receiving one farthing from Government, except their sword, one pistol, and holsters.'
CHRISDEE. Cost: £6.00.
