Can you tell me if the 60th Rifle Brigade was a parent of the Royal Green Jackets? I ask because my one of my forebears, William Smellie, was in the 60th and fought in the Peninsula Wars and at Waterloo. If the Royal Green Jackets was indeed descended from the 60th I was hoping that there may be some record on my forebear in your archives.Respectfully,David Burns, Fairfax, VirginiaEx-Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) and Queen's Own Highlanders.
