Sharpe and Ross in the field

In the television movies, he was the successor to Hogan, Nairn, and Munro. Eventually, he took on most of the roles that had been Hogan's in the novels, and was seen as Sharpe's friend. In Sharpe's Revenge, even the French commented that where Ross was Sharpe was.

Ross was last seen after being wounded during battle of Toulouse, bringing Sharpe the news the war was over.
