Battled on for 40 more years – Reading Mercury 01 July 1799:
DIED – At Northam, aged 80, J.Padmore, who, at the battle of Minden, received a ball through his head.
It is a little odd that the passing of an individual would be so casually recorded. Note that the battle of Minden took place in Prussia on 1 August 1759 during the Seven Years War and is known for the fact that the British wore white roses in their hats. That means Mr Padmore survived the gunshot wound and lived for four more decades.
