Does anyone know anything about a General Handford who was apparently engaged by the Sultan of Morocco to reorganise his troops following the Peninsular War? It's a story that might been distorted in the telling over the years and I have no further information about him. Internet searches have drawn a blank. I can't see any Handfords mentioned in the London Gazette promoted to a rank higher than captain between 1800 and 1830. Given that he must have served for a long time before he became a general (if he did indeed reach that rank) then he must have cropped up somewhere in the Peninsular War but the British Army Officers' Peninsular War Roll only includes a Lieutenant Thomas Handford, 10th Foot, died 1814. There are no Handford officers on the Waterloo Medal Roll and none in the 1841 Army List (bit of a longshot that one but it was just about the only one I could find available online). Does anybody have an Army List to hand that would cover the period (perhaps 1815-1830ish)?
