A map of an encampment and manoeuvres of Hanoverian troops at Deutsch Evern, 11-21 June 1782. Oriented with north to top. 

This may have been copied from Croupp's map of the event (RCIN 734080.a). H.R.H. The Prince Adolphus would have been eight years old when the manoeuvres depicted on this plan took place. He began his military training in Hanover in 1791 and this map may have been copied as an exercise at that time.
