"Honbl Lieut William Sinclair, 1776
I should like to expand on the topic "Honbl " as indicated in the subject
" Honorable " in a military context characterizes the military service
rendered i.e satisfactory .
The opposite would be " Dishonorable ".
Those descriptions are in use even today .
If the officer in question was in the British army , it can be taken for
granted that he was from the "Upper Class " , since British Officers of that
and most later periods of necessity had to supplement their meager army
salary with outside wealth in order to pursue a military career !
I hope the above info proves clarifying ?
