Colonel John Whitelocke - commander of the British troops who landed in Saint-Domingue in 1793. An unscrupulous character, he offered bribes to French officers who resisted the advance of British troops. "Cashiered when in command in Buenos Aires for being 'deficient in zeal, judgment and personal exertion'." (Parkinson, p. 74)
