Men of the 14th Light Dragoons et al. in a trip from Porto, Portugal to Vila Nova, Portugal - 14 May, 1809, at night
from Journal entry, 14 May 1809, pages 61–62:
We had soon, however, the consolation to find that we had wandered to the wrong place, and were quite out of our path to Villa Nova. […] After sitting, benumbed with cold, for near an hour, we proceeded with our new conductor […] It was so dark we were forced to be every moment hallooing to each other, to avoid being lost; and the men so repeatedly mistook the road, that we had often to stop and sound the bugle, for half an hour at a time, before we could get them together.
