London and Westminster (see map). This Corps was an earlier creation than many of the others – in 1779. Britain was at war on three fronts:  The Revolutionary War in America, the East India Company, with British troops, surrendered to the Marathas in Wadgaon, India, and were forced to return all territories acquired since 1773 and the Siege of Gibraltar began.  The London & Westminster Volunteers were a group of well connected gentry from across the whole of London (London and Westminster by this time being two neighbouring cities).
