Would you tell me whether I am on the right trach by interpretation of the expression in bold in the following excerpt from Defoe’s “Robinson Cruso”?
I had two elder brothers, one of whom was lieutenant-colonel to an English regiment of foot in Flanders, formerly commanded by the famous Colonel Lockhart, and was killed at the battle near Dunkirk against the Spaniards.
regiment of foot = infantry regiment
Thank you for your efforts.
Yes that's right 'regiment of foot' = 'infantry regiment'.
