Marcus Hinton - a biography

The following short biography (autobiography?) of Marcus Hinton appeared in the Battle Commemoration Unit's programme from October 1973 for their 160th anniversary event of Leipzig, at the National Army Museum. The picture (in an earlier post) of a bare headed Marcus Hinton also came from this booklet.The BCU's technical advisers were Brigadier Peter Young, Dr David Chandler and Christopher Duffy. There is plenty more of interest in this programme but I am intending to make it available in another place - more of this anon.

Wonderful stuff. I note Mr Hinton managed to live on the Thames without ever feeling the need for a 'proper' job.

Happy days.
