Baron Eben served as Captain in the 10th (or Prince of Wales’s) Regiment of Light Dragoons in 1804–6, and dedicated this manual to his Colonel, the Prince of Wales (later George IV). He was keen to encourage constant practice of aiming and firing, both for the development of manual dexterity and for ‘the material influence upon the martial spirit of the whole corps’.

Dedicated to George as Prince of Wales
