LeBreton At Fort Meigs

Fort Meigs

In the following Spring he took an active part in a battle with the Americans on the Miami, being mentioned in General Proctor's dispatch in these terms:

' ' Lieut. LeBreton of the R.N.F.L. Regiment, Assistant Engineer by his unwearied exertions rendered essential service". 

And later in the same dispatch General Proctor wrote--"I have to notice Captain Chambers' gallant conduct in the attack near the batteries at the point of the bayonet, a service in which he was well supported by Lt. LeBreton of the R.N.F. Land Regiment". [Source]
