The 104th Regiment of Foot (King's Volunteers) was a short-lived infantry regiment of the British Army active during the Seven Years' War.[1]

On 10 August 1761 Patrick Tonyn, an officer in the 6th (Inniskilling) Dragoons, was promoted to the rank of lieutenant-colonel and authorised to raise a regiment of foot.[2] The regiment was duly formed by the regimentation of six independent companies as the 104th Foot in October 1761.[2] The regiment served in Martinique before being disbanded in 1763.
