Excerpt from Her Majesty's Army, Vol. 2: A Descriptive Account of the Various Regiments Now Comprising the Queen's Forces, From Their First Establishment to the Present Time Shortly after its establishment the regiment sailed for Gibraltar, and for the next four years or so was engaged there and in Corsica, returning to England in 1798. Up to this date its regimental number was 100, but at the end of this year, 1798, it received the numerical distinction it at present bears. The Gordon Highlanders joined the russo-british expedition against the French in Holland, 1799; and at oude-sluys, at Alkmaar, and notably at egmont-op-zee, they displayed signal courage. After some unimportant services against the French in Minorca, Quiberon Bay, and Belle Isle, they joined the forces under Sir Ralph Abercromby in Egypt. With the rest of the troops they landed at Aboukir Bay on March 8, 1801, and made good their position under a heavy fire. At Mandora, five days later, the Gordon Highlanders led the left column, and during the course of the engagement made a brilliant charge, and subsequently captured a battery. They remained in Egypt till the termination of the campaign, when they returned to England; the next foreign service in which they were engaged being the expedition against Denmark in and the year following found them amongst the forces with Moore at Corunna, at which famous action they served with distinction.
