This unit, known as the graybeard regiment, was composed of older men.
Almost all were over 45 and some were in their 70s. A google search
should turn up hits and other information. They guarded bridges and
other things as I recall. My wife's ancestor, about 50 at the time,
enlisted and received a pension based upon his service. Michael-who
should not answer mesages while walking the dog
