Royal Irish Regiment of Foot


Below are listings of all of the officers who ended their North American Service as subalterns (lieutenants, ensigns, or volunteers). Many went on to higher rank after returning to England. Subalterns, both lieutenants and ensigns, were to assist the captain (company commander) in his duties. Each battalion company was assigned a lieutenant and an ensign, except the colonel's company where the captain-lieutenant replaced the lieutenant's position. The flank companies were each assigned two lieutenants. Ensigns were commissioned officers with command authority. Lt. Maxwell
