Clinton received his education at Eton College. From a long line of army officers, which included his namesake, Sir Henry Clinton, the British Commander-in-Chief in the American Revolution, Clinton received his commission in 1787 and fought in the Flanders Campaign. He was promoted to lieutenant-colonel in 1795. He spent two years as a prisoner of the French before taking part in the Italian Campaign in 1799. In 1802, he was appointed adjutant general of India, a post he held for three years. He was the British military attache to the Russian army at the Battle of Austerlitz in 1805. He was appointed commander of the garrison of Syracuse in 1806. In 1808, he was elected a member of Parliament for Boroughbridge and continued in that role for ten years, although he rarely attended. During the Peninsular War, Clinton served as Sir John Moore's adjutant and was promoted to major-general in 1810. In 1809 he published A Few Remarks, Explanatory of the Motives Which Guided the Operation of the British Army During the Late, Short Campaign in Spain, to which an anonymous officer added his own comments. He became lieutenant-general in 1813. During the battle of Waterloo, he commanded the 2nd division, the troops of which defeated and routed the French Imperial Guard. During his distinguished life, Clinton won many awards, the main one being Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath.
