DUNBAR, Thomas, British soldier, died in 1767. He became colonel of the 48th foot, 29 April 1752, was stationed in Nova Scotia, and joined Braddock's expedition against Fort Duquesne. Braddock, by Washington's advice, pressed on with 1,200 chosen men on 19 June 1755, leaving Dunbar behind with the residue of the army. After the defeat of 9 July Dunbar destroyed his remaining artillery, burned stores and baggage worth £100,000, pretending that it was done by Braddock's orders, and ignominiously retreated. Dunbar was made lieutenant governor of Gibraltar in 1756, and promoted to lieutenant general, 18 December 1760.
