Born in Edinburgh, David MacLagan studied at St George's Hospital, London and became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1807. He joined the 91 Regiment as medical officer and was with the expedition to the Island of Walcheren when his battalion of 1,000 was reduced by sickness and death to less than one company within a few months. In 1811 he sailed for Lisbon to join the army under Wellington.
