Sir Charles Grey KB (1729-1807), 1st Earl Grey. An important British general, one of the most successful leaders in the American War of Independence. He earned the nickname 'No-flint Grey' by collecting the flints from his mens' muskets before a bayonet attack, maintaining the element of surprise. Grey was appointed commander-in-chief of the British troops in America, but the war ended before he could take office.
