"The "British Grenadiers" are possibly the most iconic soldiers of all the 18th Century. That's not surprising, with their great bearskin or mitre caps, impressive height and strength, and notorious reputation for battlefield excellence. But who exactly were these brave heroes? Much is said of the British Grenadiers, but much is also rather inaccurate! Did you know, for example, that for much of the later 18th Century, the "Grenadiers" didn't even use grenades?"
