Yeah, you cant wear your skirts, but you do get a green hat to help you fit in with the other 36,000 rifles in the British Army

And it's not 'an English' regiment.

Actually it is, but we're a welcoming crowd and Fijians are generally good sorts.
 
If I recall correctly he was born up north and fled to London or the other way around. Enough for BC to give our Sean his bonafides.
IIRC he was born in London, and grew up in a rookery.
Maybe one of the later books explains it? (I stopped reading 'em after Trafalgar, when it was obvious BC was writing for $$$)
I see there were 4 written after than, plus three 'revised versions'
