Second Edition,
Government and General Publishers,
[All Rights Reserved.]


Time does not diminish the interest of Waterloo, for that combat of giants is indissolubly connected with Napoleon—the greatest master of the art of war the world has ever known.

Since the publication of my Roll Call in 1890, I have received much additional information from the relatives of Waterloo officers. This has enabled me to bring out the present revised and enlarged edition. And I wish particularly to mention that many of the obituary notices of Waterloo officers given in the following pages were collected by the late Mr. J.W. O’Brien, of the British Museum Library (formerly in the ranks of the 4th Dragoon Guards), whose annotated copy of the Roll Call came into my possession by purchase. Mr. O’Brien’s researches were not made at my instigation or wish, but having been made, and brought to my notice, I thought it advisable to secure and utilise this copy of my book containing the aforesaid MS. entries.

A special feature of the Second Edition is the list of non-commissioned officers and men (given in Part III.) who served at Waterloo, and subsequently received commissions in the British army.

Ah! Je les tiens donc, ces Anglais!Napoleon.

Never since the days of Oliver Cromwell had any name caused so much fear in England as did that of Napoleon Bonaparte. From 1802 until his first downfall, in 1814, a spirit of alarm and uneasiness pervaded all classes in Great Britain, from the King and his Ministers down to the most illiterate peasant. Those who were witnesses of, and participators in, this panic have now passed away, but the national pride which our victory over Napoleon at Waterloo excited in every Briton’s breast is as strong as ever, and will last till the crack of doom.

In July, 1803, a little pamphlet, entitled Important Considerations for the People of this Kingdom, was published in London, and “sent to the officiating minister of every parish in England.” This pamphlet, which bears the Royal Arms of England, was an appeal from the Government to the Nation, and a diatribe against Napoleon. Mark the closing lines of this appeal: “Shall we, who are abundantly supplied with iron and steel, powder and lead—shall we, who have a fleet superior to the maritime force of all the world, and who are able to bring two millions of fighting men into the field—shall we yield up this dear and happy land, together with all the liberties and honours, to preserve which our fathers so often dyed the land and the sea with their blood?... No, we are not so miserably fallen; we cannot, in so short a space of time, have become so detestably degenerate; we have the strength and the will to repel the hostility, to chastise the insolence of the foe. Mighty, indeed, xmust be our efforts, but mighty also is the need.” The idea of a French invasion was slow in forcing its way into the minds of the uneducated classes in England. When they first heard of such a possibility they thought it of no more consequence than the invasion of Scotland by Charles Edward Stuart with a mere handful of Frenchmen at his back. They also thought less of the projected descent from having heard so much in 1797, and during the Rebellion in Ireland in 1798, of a French army coming to the relief of the National party in that kingdom:—

“For the French are on the sea,
Says the Shan Van Vaugh,
And Ireland will soon be free,
Says the Shan Van Vaugh.”

And yet nothing had come of all this talk! But when the nation at large had fully grasped the possibility of a Napoleonic invasion, Pitt had no difficulty in raising the sinews of war. No fewer than 300,000 men enrolled themselves in volunteer corps and defence associations. The army and navy were increased, and everything was done that was possible to counteract the power of that wonderful man, who, in the short space of a few years, had, speaking metaphorically, built a Great Wall of China round the British Isles, shutting the English out of the commerce of Europe. Our preparations were none too soon. In 1805 the battle of Austerlitz established the supremacy of Napoleon over Austria and Russia. Fortunately for England, Nelson’s crowning victory at Trafalgar indefinitely postponed Napoleon’s invasion scheme; but we were still engaged in a gigantic war, single-handed, with half of Europe our declared, and the other half our enforced, enemies. Nelson was dead; Pitt was dying from the weight of anxieties which pressed upon him in this tremendous crisis; Hanover had been taken from us. The outlook was very gloomy, and affairs became more complicated in 1807, when the military expeditions, arranged by Lord Grenville’s ministry, against Constantinople and Egypt, had turned out failures, and resulted in the Turks declaring war against us and confiscating all British property. And yet in 1807 Napoleon had not yet reached the zenith of his power. For the next xifive years he held the destinies of nearly the whole of Europe in his own hands. Monarchies of long standing were disestablished and new kingdoms—Napoleonic kingdoms—were raised up in their place. Immense French armies traversed Europe from Portugal to the heart of Russia, and every capital within that limit was, in its turn, subjugated to the French yoke. But in 1808 two British Generals stemmed the tide of French conquest in the Peninsula, viz., Sir John Moore and Sir Arthur Wellesley. The first met a soldier’s death at Corunna, and the latter was superseded by an incapable commander. But the British Government soon found that they had made a grievous mistake, and Wellesley was again entrusted with the supreme command in Portugal. Then commenced that series of brilliant campaigns which liberated Portugal and Spain from the Napoleonic grasp, and only ceased after the battle of Toulouse by Napoleon’s abdication at Fontainebleau. In the spring of 1814 England had a large army, composed for the most part of seasoned veterans, who were fit for anything and worth millions. When war broke out again, in the spring of 1815, at least half of the Peninsular army had been disbanded—dispersed—and not to be had at any price. Some of the best of the old Peninsular regiments had been sent to America in 1814, and several of them—the gallant 43rd Light Infantry being one—did not reach Waterloo in time to take part in the battle. Raw levies took their place, and foreign auxiliaries helped to bring up Wellington’s army in Flanders to the required strength. Of Wellington’s 106,000 barely one-third were British. The remainder consisted of “King’s German Legion,” “Hanoverian Levies,” “Brunswick Contingent,” “Nassau Contingent,” “Dutch and Belgian Troops,” and “Nassauers in Dutch service.” Of this polyglot force the German Legion, both cavalry and infantry, were deserving of the highest praise for their conduct on Waterloo Day. They formed part of the British army for nearly a dozen years, and many British officers held commissions in the “Legion.” I have been obliged to leave out the German Legion officers in the following Roll Call (excepting those who served on the Staff), and it would be invidious, when all did so well, to pick out the British officers who served in the xii“Legion” at Waterloo and record their services when those of their German brother-officers are omitted. I cannot even make an exception of Colonel (afterwards Baron) Hugh Halkett, who, like a knight in the olden days of chivalry, singled out a French general (Cambronne) in single combat, and took him prisoner.

The Hanoverian levies did well also, excepting one regiment, which refused to charge the French when commanded so to do. And this was doubtless owing to the lâcheté of their colonel, who, when ordered to lead his regiment to the charge, declined to do so, saying he had no confidence in his men. It is related that Captain Horace Seymour, who had brought this officer Lord Uxbridge’s orders, addressed “a few words of plain Saxon” to him, “which no gentleman ought to have listened to unmoved,” but the only effect they had on the Hanoverian was to hasten his departure to the rear. The Brunswick Contingent fought at a disadvantage at Waterloo, having lost their brave leader (the Duke of Brunswick) at Quatre Bras. Of the Nassau, Dutch, and Belgian troops it is only fair to say that they were, mostly, utterly useless at Waterloo. The glamour of Napoleon was upon them. They had lately been in his service, and had a settled conviction that Wellington would be defeated and his army cut to pieces. “Come over to us, brave Belgians!” shouted a French regiment at Waterloo to their Belgian opponents in the battle. But the “brave Belgians” preferred making “a retrograde movement for strategical reasons,” and retired from the field, carrying news of Wellington’s defeat to Brussels.

Now for Napoleon’s army: This consisted on the 15th of June of about 128,000 men[A]—mostly veterans who had served in many campaigns, and to whom defeat was rare. Add to this, that they all belonged to one nation, and were all equally devoted to their beloved emperor. “No army,” says Colonel Chesney, in his Waterloo Lecture, “was probably ever so well furnished with leaders as his, as none had ever the like experience wherewith to train them.” It is no slight to Wellington to say that Napoleon was, for rapid and offensive warfare, by far the first general of his xiiiday. In defensive warfare Wellington was much in advance of his great rival. Taking the words out of Philip the Second’s mouth, Wellington might have with truth said, “Time and I against any other two.” Once more: Wellington himself told Earl Stanhope that he considered the presence of Napoleon with the French army at Waterloo fully equivalent to an additional force of 30,000 men! Now this was the total of the force sent under Marshal Grouchy, on the 17th June, to follow the Prussian army, which had been defeated at Ligny by Napoleon on the previous day, and which was supposed to be in full retreat on Namur and Liége, so that, in round numbers, Napoleon was himself considered equal to a whole army corps! If the British had a Picton, the French had a Ney, who was considered almost Napoleon’s equal in handling troops in the field, and who had pressed us so sorely at Quatre Bras, on the 16th of June, when only half our army had arrived at that position. Then as a leader of cavalry Lord Uxbridge was well matched by Kellermann, whose fame as a cavalry general dated from Marengo. And General Mouton (Count Lobau) was an infantry leader of whom any army might have been proud. It was he who, at the head of the Imperial Foot Guards, had wrested the victory from the Prussians on the bloody field of Lützen, in 1813, and saved the French army from a reverse. Enough has now been said to show what a splendid army the British had opposed to them on the 18th of June, 1815. “I have them at last, these English!” exclaimed Napoleon, in a transport of joy, early in the morning of that day, when he saw our army drawn up in position, with their backs to the forest of Soignies. But he underrated Wellington’s generalship, nor could he foresee how the British generals, officers, and men of all ranks would fight that memorable day, when the eyes of all Europe were upon them, because upon the issue of that contest depended the fate of empires and kingdoms, as well as the future peace of the world. And knowing, as we all do, what glory the victory at Waterloo brought to our countrymen and our country, we must be generous enough to give the brave Prussians the full share due to them for their co-operation on that day. Had it not been for them, Waterloo would have been as barren a victory as Borodino, and Napoleon would have retreated in as good xivorder, probably, as Blucher was able to do after his defeat at Ligny. As it was, our troops bore the whole brunt of the battle without losing an inch of ground, and the arrival of the Prussians, at the close of the day, sealed the fate of Napoleon.[B]

A.  Lord Wolseley, in his Decline and Fall of Napoleon, says the French army consisted of about 123,000 men of all arms and 344 guns.—Ed.

In offering this, the first annotated Waterloo Army List, to the British public, I must ask their indulgence for any omissions and errors it may contain. Although I have spared no trouble in the matter, there must be, I well know, a few names of British Waterloo officers who have escaped my notice. But when the following list is compared with the very defective lists given by Siborne and George Jones (the foundation of all other lists), I think the following Roll Call will be found infinitely more trustworthy. I have also added the regimental and army commissions of the Waterloo officers up to the date of the battle, and the honours and promotions bestowed after Waterloo. The war services of many of these same officers now appear in print for the first time, and are not to be found in the Military Calendar of field officers which was published in 1820, nor in Hart’s Army Lists, which date from 1840, and are such valuable works of reference. Of course, a large proportion of the names I have annotated, genealogically, are names of well-known families of the present time, but there are also many names in the following Roll Call which belong to families that are now extinct or lost sight of. I have endeavoured to rescue as many names from oblivion as time would allow, but there are a certain number of whom I can give no information beyond their obituary notices:

“Here lies Pat Steele. That’s very true.
Who was he? What was he? What’s that to you?”

As regards the orthography of the names in the regimental lists, I am not responsible, as they are copied from the “official” xvArmy List. The same rule applies to the precedence of the different regiments.

I am indebted to Colonel F.A. Whinyates, late R.H.A., for some interesting information regarding artillery officers, and to George Tancred, Esq., late captain Scots Greys, for the Waterloo muster-roll and some memoranda relating to the Scots Greys.

F.-M. Arthur, Duke of Wellington, K.G., G.C.B., &c.

Born in Dublin, 1st May, 1769. 3rd son of Garrett, 1st Earl of Mornington, by Anne, eldest dau. of Arthur (Hill), 1st Viscount Dungannon. Educated at Eton and Angers Military Academy. Like Clive, he was “a heaven-born general.” His fame far exceeded the many titles he won by his genius. “I am going to dine with Wellington to-night,” said a young Irish staff officer to a group of brother officers at the close of a hard-fought battle in Spain. “Give me at least the prefix of Mr. before my name,” said Lord Wellington, who happened to ride by at the moment and had overheard the jubilant remark. “My Lord,” replied the officer, “we do not speak of Mr. Cæsar, or Mr. Alexander, so why should I speak of Mr. Wellington?” The Duke d. at Walmer Castle, 14th Sept., 1852, and was buried in St. Paul’s Cathedral. He had m., in 1806, the Hon. Catherine Pakenham, 3rd dau. of Edward, 2nd Lord Longford, and by her, who d. in 1831, left issue.

F.-M. and C.-in-C. of the British army in the Crimea in Nov., 1854. D. in the Crimea during the siege of Sebastopol, at a farmhouse overlooking the plains of Balaklava. In the principal room is still to be seen a marble slab with the inscription, “In this room died F.-M. Lord Raglan, G.C.B., Commander-in-Chief of the British Army in the Crimea, 28th June, 1855.” Lord Raglan’s body was brought to England and interred at Badminton with his ancestors. He had m., in 1814, Lady Emily Harriet Wellesley-Pole, 2nd dau of Wm., 3rd Earl of Mornington, and by her, who d. 1881, left issue.

Lt.-Col. C.F. Canning, 3rd Ft. Gds., K.

3rd son of Stratford Canning, by Mehetabel Patrick, of Summerhill, Dublin, and brother of the subsequently celebrated diplomatist, Viscount Stratford de Redcliffe. Had acted as A.D.C. to Wellington 10in the Pa., and it was by the former’s special request that the Duke took him again on his personal staff just before Waterloo.

“Dying lamented Canning lay,
On March he wistful gaz’d.
‘How fares the Duke?’ ‘How goes the day?’
‘All well’—his head he raised.”

Lt.-Col. Hon. Sir Alexander Gordon, K.C.B., 3rd Ft. Gds., K.

It is said that when Wellington was roused from sleep by Dr. Hume early on the morning after Waterloo and told that Gordon had died from the effect of his wounds, he burst into tears. Alex. Wm. Gordon was 3rd son of George, Lord Haddo, by Charlotte, youngest daughter of Wm. Baird, of Newbyth. He had served as A.D.C. to his uncle, Sir David Baird, at the capture of the Cape of Good Hope and in several subsequent campaigns.

Lt. Lord George Lennox, 9th Lt. Dns.

2nd son of Charles, 4th Duke of Richmond, by Lady Charlotte Gordon, eldest daughter of Alexander, 4th Duke of Gordon. He and his eldest brother took an active part in the drama of the 18th June, whilst the duke, his father, and Lord Wm. Pitt Lennox, his younger brother, were spectators of a battle in which they were unable to play a more active part. (See notes to 35th Regt. of Foot.) Lord George m., 29th June, 1818, Louisa, dau. of the Hon. F. Rodney, and had issue. Was M.P. for West Sussex, 1832–41, and Gent. of the Bed-chamber to Prince Albert. D. 1873.

Maj. Hon. Henry Percy, 14th Lt. Dns.

Sent home with the Waterloo Despatch, and recd. the bonus usual on such occasions and a brevet of Lt.-Col. A Jew—an agent of Rothschild, who was at Ghent when news was brought to Louis XVIII. of the defeat of the French army, drew his own conclusions from the king’s happy face which he saw through a window—set off at once for London and did his little business on the Stock Exchange a few hours before Percy reached the metropolis. 5th son of Algernon, 1st Earl of Beverley, by Isabella, 2nd dau. of Peter Burrell, of Beckenham. Was A.D.C. to Sir J. Moore at Corunna. C.B. D. unm. 15 April, 1825.

Commanded the 4th Division of the British Army in the Crimea, and fell at Inkerman. He was a worthy descendant of the founder of his family—Sir Alan de Cathcart—whose bravery at the battle of Loudoun Hill is thus recorded in an old rhyme:—

“A knight that then was in his rout,
Worthy and wight, stalwart and stout,
Courteous and fair, and of good fame,
Sir Alan Cathcart was his name.”


H.R.H. the Prince of Orange, W.

Bn. 6th Dec., 1792. Appointed a maj.-gen. in the Brit. Army in Dec., 1813. Succeeded his father, William I. King of Holland (who d. in 1843), as William II. Became a F.-M. of England in 1845. D. in 1849, and was succeeded by his son, the reigning King of Holland.

Russell, who was murdered by his valet in 1840. In the Army List for 1815 is styled “Honourable.” May have been a royal page.


Capt. the Earl of March, 52nd Foot.

At the siege of Ciudad Rodrigo, the Earl of March, then a lt. in the 13th Lt. Dns., and serving as A.D.C. to Visct. Wellington, entered the breach as a volunteer with the storming party of the 52nd. The Prince of Orange and Lord Fitzroy Somerset were Lord March’s companions in this adventure. On the following morning, when breakfasting with Wellington, they received a gentle reproof, being staff officers, for thus risking their lives. Succeeded his father as 5th Duke of Richmond in 1819. Placed on h. p., 25th July, 1816. Served in the Pa. with the 52nd Regt. and was severely wounded at the battle of Orthes.

The Earl of Uxbridge, G.C.B., W.

“The Prince Murat of the British Army.” This brilliant cavalry leader served with distinction in the early part of the war in the Pa. The way he handled the cavalry at Waterloo is a matter of history known to every Briton. Wounded in the right knee during the last charge; his right leg was amputated after the battle and buried under a tree. A board was afterwards affixed to this tree with this verse:—

“Here lies the Marquis of Anglesey’s leg;
Pray for the rest of his body, I beg.”

Was created Marquis of Anglesey 23rd June, 1815. Bn. 17th May, 1768. Succeeded his father as 2nd Earl of Uxbridge in 1812. Attained the rank of F.-M. in Nov., 1846. Was twice m., and left issue by both wives. D. 29th April, 1854. Bd. in Lichfield Cathedral.

Capt. H.B. Seymour, 18th Hussars, W.

“The strongest man in the British Army,” who is said to “have slain more men at Waterloo than any other single individual.” Was taken prisoner on the 18th June, but rescued by some of our cavalry sent by Wellington himself for the purpose. He is the identical “Capt. Trevanion” in Charles Lever’s Harry Lorrequer, who was grossly insulted by a French officer—a noted bully—at a restaurant in Paris a few weeks after Waterloo. After repeated insults the French bully ordered a glass of brandy, and, whilst sitting just opposite Trevanion, drank it off, saying, in a loud voice that could be heard all over the café, “A votre courage, Anglais.” “Trevanion slowly rose from his chair, displaying to the astonished Frenchman the immense proportions and gigantic frame of a man well known as the largest officer in the British Army. With one stride he was beside the chair of the Frenchman, and with the speed of lightning, he seized his nose by one hand while with the other he grasped his lower jaw, and, wrenching open his mouth with 13the strength of an ogre, he spat down his throat.” The bully’s jaw was broken by his adversary’s iron grasp, and he disappeared to be seen no more.

Horace Beauchamp Seymour was transferred, in 1815, to a troop in the 1st Life Guards. Was put on h. p. 1819, K.C.H.; M.P. for Lisburn. 3rd son of Adml. Lord Hugh Seymour, by Lady Anne Waldegrave, dau. of 2nd Earl Waldegrave. M. twice, and by his first wife (Eliz., dau. of Sir L. Palk, Bt.) was father of Adml. Lord Alcester. D. at Brighton 23rd Nov., 1851.


Capt. T. Wildman, 7th Hussars, W.

Purchased the Newstead Abbey estate for £95,000 from Mr. Clawton, who had bought it of Lord Byron for £14,000. Eldest son of Thos. Wildman of Bacton Hall, Suffolk, by Sarah, dau. of Henry Hardinge, of Durham. Served at Corunna and in many of the subsequent engagements. M., 1816, Louisa Preisig, a Swiss lady. D. s. p., 20 Sept., 1859.

Capt. J. Fraser, 7th Hussars, W.

Aftds. Sir James John Fraser, Bart. Succeeded his brother, Sir Wm. Fraser, in 1827. Son of Wm. Fraser (a direct descendant of 1st Lord Lovat), who was created a bart. in 1806, by Elizabeth Farquharson. M. Charlotte, only child of D. Craufurd. D. 5th June, 1834, and was succeeded by his son, Wm. Augustus.


Lord Hill, G.C.B.

The 2nd son and 4th child of a family of sixteen. His father was Sir John Hill, a Shropshire bart. His mother, the dau. and co-heir of John Chambré, of Petton, in the same county. Bn. 11th Aug., 1772, at The Hall, in the village of Prees, in Shropshire. Entered the 53rd Regt. as lieut., in 1793. Was A.D.C. to Gen. O’Hara, at Toulon. Commanded the 90th Regt. at the age of 23. Appointed to a brigade command in the Pa., in 1808, and to a division in 1809. Greatly distinguished himself at Arroyo and Almaraz—victories that were entirely his. K.C.B.

Fell whilst gloriously leading a charge of infantry to repel “one of the most serious attacks made by the enemy on our position.” It is said that on the morning of the 18th June, one of the first questions asked by Napoleon of his Staff was: Où est la division de Picton? A few hours later, the broken ranks and decimated companies of many French regts. answered the question. Picton’s body was conveyed to England and interred in the burial ground of St. George’s, Hanover 15Square. In 1859 his remains were finally deposited in St. Paul’s Cathedral.

One morning there appeared written in chalk on the door of a barn the following distich:—

“The devil break the gaoler’s back
That let thee loose, sweet Denis Pack.”

For his services at Waterloo he was made Col.-in-Chf. of the York Chasseurs. M. 10th July, 1816, Lady Eliz. Beresford, youngest dau. of George, 1st Marquis of Waterford, and had issue. His 2nd son was Lord Beresford’s heir, and assumed the surname of Beresford. Sir Denis d. 24th July, 1823.

Succeeded to the command of the British troops before New Orleans, in Jan. 1815, on the deaths of Generals Pakenham and Gibbs, who nobly fell whilst heading an attack on the “Crescent City.” The disorganised state of the British troops, and the utter impracticability of forcing the American entrenchments, induced General Lambert to retreat, which he was able to do without meeting with any opposition, having captured Fort Bowyer. With their natural love of exaggeration, the Americans magnified both their victory and our defeat:—

“The English had ten thousand,
Jackson only one;
But what was that to Jackson
When him they turned their backs on?”

By a forced march from Ostend, Lambert’s brigade arrived at Waterloo just as the battle was commencing. G.C.B. Col.-in-Chf. 10th Foot, 1824. M., 19th Oct., 1816, a dau. of John Mount, of Brocklehurst, in the New Forest. D. at Thames Ditton, 14th Sept., 1847, leaving issue.

Sir Colquhoun Grant, K.C.B., W.

“Descended from the Grants of Gartenbeg.” In order to show the antiquity of the great “Clan Grant,” one of the name asserted that the verse in the Old Testament, saying, “There were giants in the earth in those days” had been wrongly translated, and that it ought to read: “There were Grants in those days.” This genealogical flight reminds one of the story of a negro servant, Deemers by name, who, hearing his Yankee master everlastingly talking of his ancestors, cut into the conversation one fine morning when waiting at table with the following: “Massa, an ancestor of mine is mentioned in de Bible; I heard de minister read out last Sunday a chapter about a coloured man—one nigger Deemers!”

Colquhoun Grant commanded the 72nd Regt. in the expedition to the Cape of Good Hope, under Sir David Baird, in 1806, and on 8th Jan. was wounded in the action with the Batavian army. In Sir D. Baird’s despatch, announcing the victory of the British troops, occurs this passage: “Your lordship will perceive the name of Lt.-Col. Grant among the wounded; but the heroic spirit of this officer was not subdued by his misfortune, and he continued to lead his men to glory as long as an enemy was opposed to the 72nd Regt.” The following is an authentic anecdote:—

Sir Colquhoun Grant, being in command of a regt. at Clonmel, he gave offence in some way to an honest shopkeeper, named Mulcahy, who struck him on the parade, in presence of his whole corps. The officers rushed forward to seize the delinquent, but Sir Colquhoun interposed, declaring that he had been the aggressor, and as the gentleman thought proper to resent his conduct in so gross a manner, it remained for him to seek the usual reparation. “Oh!” exclaimed Mulcahy, “if it’s for fighting you are, I’ll fight you; but it shall neither be with swords nor pistols, nor anything else but my two fists” (and fine big mutton fists they were, sure enough). “Well, then,” replied the gallant officer, “with all my heart. By insulting you, I have put myself on a level with you, and of course cannot refuse to meet you on your own terms. Come along, sir.” The men were dismissed; and Col. Grant, accompanied by his adversary and some mutual friends, repaired to the mess-room, where he very speedily closed up Mr. Mulcahy’s peepers, and sent him home perfectly satisfied. That was the proudest day of Mulcahy’s life, and many a time has he boasted of the black eye he got from a K.C.B., as if it were an honourable ordinary emblazoned upon his escutcheon. “Ever since that morning,” would he say, “let me meet Sir Colquhoun Grant, where I might, in town or country, among lords or ladies, dressed in plain clothes or dizened out in gold and scarlet, he would give me his hand and say,‘How are you, Billy?’”

In Aug., 1808, Grant was appointed lt.-col. of the 15th Lt. Dns., and served in the Pa. Had five horses shot under him at Waterloo. G.C.B., G.C.H. Col.-in-Chf. 15th Hussars, 1827. Lt.-Gen.

Major-Gen. Peregrine Maitland.

Son of Thos. Maitland, of Shrubs Hall, in the New Forest. Joined the 1st Regt. of Foot Guards in 1792. Commanded the 1st Brigade of Guards at the battle of Nive. The example he set, both at Quatre Bras and Waterloo, had much to do with the victory then obtained over the French. When Napoleon’s “Old Guard” made that gigantic and final effort, on the evening of June 18th, to retrieve the fortunes of the day, it was Maitland’s brigade which checked their advance and drove them headlong down the bloody slope. “Now, Maitland, now’s your time!” said Wellington, as the leading column of the French Guards approached the crest of the slope where the British Guards were stationed—the front rank kneeling. How Maitland responded is told in the words of Col. J. H. Stanhope in his letter to the Duke of York:—“Were it possible for me to add anything to the reputation of Maitland by stating the gallantry he has shown, cheering on with his hat off, I could dwell long on the subject.” Made K.C.B., 22nd June, 1815.

It was poor Hay, who had been picked off by a French cavalry skirmisher, who was, in his turn, shot dead by a Grenadier. James, Lord Hay, eldest son of William, 16th Earl of Errol, by his 2nd wife—Alicia, youngest dau. of Samuel Eliot, of the Island of Antigua—was born 7th July, 1797.

Col. Sir Wm. Howe De Lancey, K.C.B., K.

The De Lanceys were descended from a wealthy Huguenot family, who went from Caen, in Normandy, to America, after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. In the short space of sixty years this family produced three celebrated soldiers, viz., Gen. Oliver De Lancey, a leading American loyalist, who fought on the British side during the War of Independence, and, settling in England, d. at Beverley, 1785. In another generation, an Oliver De Lancey distinguished himself as a Christine leader in the Spanish war, and was killed at the siege of San Sebastian in 1837. The third distinguished soldier of this family was the above Wm. Howe De Lancey, who was only son of S. De Lancey, Gov. of Tobago, by Cornelia his wife, who d. in 1817. His early career was one of renown, and in 1799 we find him maj. of the 45th Regt., at the age of 21. On 4th April, 1815, he was married, in Scotland, to the beautiful Magdalen Hall, dau. of Sir James Hall, Bart., of Dunglass, by Lady Helen Douglas, dau. of 4th Earl of Selkirk. The return of Napoleon from Elba once more called De Lancey to the seat of war. Leaving his fair young wife, he proceeded, in May, to Brussels, whither he was followed, the first week in June, by his bride. At Waterloo, when riding by Wellington’s side, the wind of a cannon ball knocked him off his horse. This, it was afterwards found, had separated the ribs from the back-bone, and caused a fatal injury. Wellington caused De Lancey to be removed to a hut in a blanket. For some days hopes were entertained of his recovery, and he was devotedly nursed by his sorrow-stricken wife, whose perilous drive to the battle-field, and her experiences, were lately given in the Illustrated Naval and Military Magazine, from an old MS. narrative written by herself. After lingering ten days, the hero died.

“Fair lady’s love, and splendid fame,
De Lancey did enthral.
His loyal heart alike they claim,
They sigh to see him fall.”

Col. Hon. Alex. Abercromby, 2nd Ft. Gds., W.

Bn. 4th March, 1784. 4th son of Sir Ralph Abercromby, of Tullibody, who fell at Aboukir, by Mary Anne, dau. of John Menzies, of Ferntoun, Perthshire, who was created a baroness in 1801.

34Col. F.E. Hervey, 14th Lt. Dns.

Afterwards Col. Sir Felton Elwell Hervey-Bathurst, Bart. He was eldest son of Felton Lionel Hervey, by Selina, only dau. and heir of Sir John Elwell, Bart. After Waterloo was appointed A.D.C. to Wellington, which post he held during the British occupation in France. The following anecdote is from Reminiscences of Wellington and Anecdotes of his Staff, by Lord Wm. Lennox:—“Felton Hervey, of the 14th, who had lost an arm when in pursuit of the enemy flying from Oporto, always mounted himself and his orderly upon English hunters, so as to make his escape should he at any time be unexpectedly surrounded. Upon one occasion, when reconnoitring, Hervey rode up, by mistake, to a small detachment of French cavalry. Fortunately for him, the men were dismounted, and busily employed in cooking their rations; but no sooner was the colonel discovered, and his rank recognized, than the order to mount was given. Hervey and his orderly, finding the odds greatly against them, immediately started off at a tremendous pace to reach our lines. The French dragoons were quickly in their saddles, for the prize was worth gaining, and amidst wild shouts and loud halloes, gave chase to their flying foes. The noise attracted the attention of some of the enemy’s lancers, who, being posted nearer the English forces, were enabled to cut off the retreat of the fugitives. The clattering of the horses’ hoofs, who had thus joined in the pursuit, sounded like a death-knell to the two gallant soldiers. ‘Your only chance, colonel,’ said the faithful orderly, ‘is to make for that ravine.’ Hervey followed the suggestion; the ravine was narrow, with only room for one horse to enter. No sooner had he gained it than, on looking round, a terrible sight presented itself. The devoted soldier, knowing that the life of his commanding officer could alone be saved by the sacrifice of his own, had placed himself across the narrow opening, and was literally pierced and cut to pieces. The delay thus occasioned enabled Hervey to pursue his flight. Gaining the open, he charged a stiff fence, and was soon out of sight of his pursuers.” He m., 1817, Louisa Catherine, 3rd dau. of Richard Caton, of Maryland, U.S.A.; was created a baronet, with remainder to his brother Frederick, 3rd Oct., 1818, and d. s. p. 24th Sept., 1819.

Gomm, who had served in America in the 46th Regt. The family is undoubtedly of French origin. As far back as 1685 we find Sir Bernard de Gomme appointed Master Surveyor of the Ordnance. Wm. M. Gomm entered the army, as ensign, in 1794, and at the age of 14 carried the colours of the 9th Foot—the Holy Boys—into action in Holland. Served in the Pa., and received the gold cross and one clasp.

Peter Toussaint de Barrailler was, as his name implies, of Gallic origin. The irony of fate decreed that he should use his sword against the Gallic army in 1815. His name disappeared from the Army List a few years after Waterloo.

Lt. Basil Jackson, Rl. Staff Corps.

The following memoir of this distinguished veteran appeared in the Illustrated London News of 9th Nov., 1889:—“A gallant military veteran, who has died at the great age of ninety-four, was reckoned one of the four surviving officers of the British Army present at the battle of Waterloo. Colonel Basil Jackson, born at Glasgow on June 27, 1795, was son of Major Basil Jackson; he entered the Military College in 1808, and, having received his commission as ensign, did not join a Line regiment, but was transferred to the Royal Staff Corps, where he learned the duties of the Quartermaster-General’s Department and engineering. In that branch of the Army he was employed in Holland and Belgium, in 1814 and 1815, and in the Waterloo campaign did good service in clearing the roads, and on the Duke of Wellington’s Staff. He accompanied the army to Paris, and was afterwards selected to go to St. Helena with Napoleon. In that island he remained till about a 39year and a half before Napoleon’s death. At a later period he was employed in Nova Scotia and in Canada, taking part in the construction of the Rideau Canal. He held the Professorship of Military Surveying in the East India Company’s Military College at Addiscombe during twenty years. After retiring from the army he lived at Hillsborough, near Ross, in Herefordshire.” M. 28th March, 1828, the dau. of Col. Muttlebury, C.B.

Lt. A. Brauns, Rl. Staff Corps.

Probably a son of the Col. John Brauns, of the German Legion, who was killed at the battle of Talavera. The above officer bore the names of “Augustus Christ. Gotleib.” Was placed on h. p. as lieut., in 1819. Living 1846.


Col. Sir Colin Campbell, K.C.B., 2nd Ft. Gds.

5th son of John Campbell, of Melfort, by Colina, dau. of John Campbell, of Auchalader. In 1792 he ran away from Perth Academy, and entered himself on the books of a ship bound for the West Indies. He was met in the fruit market at Kingston, Jamaica, by his brother Patrick (aftds. an admiral), a lieut. on board a man-of-war, who brought him home. In 1793 became a midshipman on board an East Indiaman. Two years later we find him serving as a lieut. in the 3rd Batt. Breadalbane Fencibles, and in 1799 he was appointed ens. in a West India Regt. Exchanged to the Ross-shire Buffs, and as capt., served under Sir A. Wellesley at the storming of Ahmednuggur, where his distinguished gallantry won him a brevet majority. At Assaye he had two horses shot under him, and was severely wounded. He accompanied Sir A. Wellesley to the Peninsula, and was for a considerable time on the staff of the army. For his services in Spain he obtained the gold cross with six clasps, and in Jan., 1815, was made K.C.B. He was a splendid soldier, but a bad French scholar. “When he wished his dinner to be arranged on the table, he used, as it were, to address the dishes, Bif-teck venez içi! Petits pâtés allez là!” (anecdote by Wellington). Was Governor of Ceylon from 1840–7. During his residence there he frequently heard from his great chief, Wellington, his attached friend. “We are both growing old,” wrote the Duke to Campbell; “God knows if we shall ever meet again. Happen what may, I shall never forget our first meeting under the walls of Ahmednuggur.” Sir Colin returned to England in June, 1847, and d. on the 13th of same month, in London, aged seventy-one, and was buried in St. James’s Church, Piccadilly.

2.  The name of Dorville has only been known in England for a little over a century; but it is that of a well-known Norman family which flourished for six hundred years in France prior to its exodus from France to North Germany, for religious causes, early in the 17th century. From Germany the “d’Orvilles” migrated to Holland, where the family left its mark in the person of the learned James Philip Dorville, professor of history and languages to a Dutch university, and likewise a Sicilian explorer, whose valuable book on Sicily (with rare illustrations), written in the purest Latin, is treasured, with other Dorville books, in the Bodleian Library. The professor’s son, John Dorville, quitted Holland and settled in England. He bought the Ravenscourt Estate at Fulham. M. Anne Gibson (grand-daughter of Edmund Gibson, Bishop of London), and had three sons, the two younger of whom were Philip and Thomas, both of whom entered the army and did good service in the Par. War—the former being for some time on Lord Anglesey’s staff, and the latter in the 1st Foot Guards. At Waterloo Col. Dorville commanded the two squadrons of the 1st Dgns. “which rushed into the second column of the enemy, consisting of about 4,000 men, and after a desperate fight returned with a French eagle.” In this gallant charge Col. Dorville had the scabbard of his sword shot away, and a bullet passed through the breast of his coat. Had three horses shot under him. On the death of Sir Wm. Ponsonby the command of the “Union Brigade” devolved on Col. Muter, of the 6th Dgns., who, being soon after wounded, was replaced by Col. Clifton, and Col. Dorville succeeded to the command of the 1st Dgns. Made C.B. for Waterloo. Retd. on h. p. 8th March, 1827. M.

On the return of the 21st to Scotland the sergt.-major was discharged with a pension and settled at his native city, Glasgow. Gen. James Inglis Hamilton, the colonel of the 21st, who was a Lanarkshire man, being on a visit to Glasgow some years later, happened to meet his former sergt.-major and gave him money for educational purposes. Later on he took little James Anderson to his family seat at Murdestoun and introduced him to his maiden sister Miss Christina Hamilton. The general and his sister educated James Anderson and his brothers at Glasgow Grammar School. Through his patron’s army interest James Anderson was appointed Cornet in the Scots Greys at the age of fifteen under the name of James Inglis Hamilton. (Old Reminiscences of Glasgow, Vol. I.)

Hamilton’s body was found on the field—shot through the heart in addition to other wounds, and rifled. His trusty sword was gone, but the scabbard and silken sash remained. These relics were transmitted to Lieut. Jno. Anderson, the colonel’s brother, who d. at Glasgow 3rd Dec., 1816, from wounds recd. at Salamanca. The Treasury remitted £200 to the Misses Anderson in Dec., 1829; and the Waterloo Fund gave a pension to Col. Hamilton’s widow (née Clerke), who was an English lady.

12.  Promoted capt. 20th July, and placed on h. p. 25th March, 1816.

13.  There is some doubt as to whether this officer was actually present at Waterloo, as in a contemporary list of officers of the Scots Greys who served at this battle, in the handwriting of Lieut. J.R.T. Graham of this regt., Lieut. Falconar is noted as being “on baggage guard at Brussels.” It is noticeable, however, that Falconar’s name appears in the original “Waterloo Muster-roll” of the regt. given in Part II.; and it may be that he re-joined the Greys before the close of the battle. Placed on h. p. 25th March, 1816. D. at Woodcot, co. Haddington, 15th Sept., 1820.

14.  Promoted capt. 10th Oct., 1816, and Maj. 10th June, 1826. H. p. 1827.

The reredos in Stanwix Church, Cumberland, was erected in memory of Major Graham. It is an interesting historical fact that the Graham family received and sheltered Prince Charles Edward at Barrock, after his defeat at Penrith, in Dec., 1745, for a night. The old chair in which the Prince slept, and the remains of his plaid (which plaid he gave Mrs. Graham when he thanked her on leaving in the morning), are now in the possession of Miss Graham, to whom the Editor is indebted for the above details of her father and ancestors. It is said that the Prince fought at Culloden in someone else’s plaid—having given away his own.

22.  Son of Rev. Francis Kinchant, of Easton, co. Hereford.

1.  76Aftds. Maj.-Gen. Sir Frederick Cavendish Ponsonby, K.C.B. and K.M.T., Gov. of Malta. 2nd son of Frederick, 3rd Earl of Bessborough, by Lady Henrietta, 2nd dau. of 1st Earl Spencer. Bn. 6th July, 1783. Cornet 10th Lt. Dgns. 1800. Maj. 23rd Lt. Dgns. 1807. At head of this regt. distinguished himself at Talavera, in 1809. Lt.-col. of the regt. 1810. At Barossa, with a squadron of German dragoons, he charged the French cavalry covering the retreat, overthrew them, and took two guns. Lt.-Col. 12th Lt. Dgns. 1811. Again signally distinguished himself at the battles of Salamanca and Vittoria. His experiences at Waterloo were almost unique, as when lying grievously wnded. on the field, after a most gallant charge, in the French lines, a lancer who was passing by and saw Ponsonby move, exclaimed: Tu n’est pas mort, coquin,” and struck his lance through the English officer’s back. “My head dropped” (wrote Ponsonby in his subsequent narrative of his experiences), “the blood gushed into my mouth, a difficulty of breathing came on, and I thought all was over.” But the bitterness of death was not yet past. Soon after, a tirailleur came up and roughly searched him all over, robbing Ponsonby of what money he had about him. He was hardly quit of this scoundrel before another appeared with the same intent. At last a good Samaritan appeared in the shape of a French officer, who administered brandy to the apparently dying Englishman, and then passed on “to pursue the retreating British”! What followed is best given in Ponsonby’s own words: “Presently another tirailleur appeared, who came and knelt and fired over me, loading and firing many times, and conversing with great gaiety all the while. At last he ran off.” The evening came, and with it the Prussians. “Two squadrons of Prussian cavalry, both of them two deep, passed over me in full trot, lifting me from the ground and tumbling me about cruelly. A German soldier, bent on plunder, came and pulled me about roughly before he left me.” An English private next appeared, and on Ponsonby telling him who he was, the soldier picked up a sword and stood sentry over him. Next morning Ponsonby was removed in a cart to a farmhouse, and laid in a bed from which poor Sir A. Gordon had just been carried out dead. Col.

1.  Col. Patrick Doherty belonged to a good old Irish family which has done good service to its country, both in the army and on the judicial bench. In the two great wars in which Great Britain played a leading part during the 19th century, the 13th Regt. of Lt. Dgns. (Hussars) has been commanded by a Doherty; and three generations of this family have been closely associated with this same regt. In 1796 Patrick Doherty embarked for the West Indies with his regt. on active service. It is on record that no less than twenty-two officers of the 13th Lt. Dgns. fell victims to “Yellow Jack” when serving in St. Domingo; and the skeleton of the regt., with two or three surviving officers, returned to England. This fatality brought rapid promotion to Doherty, and in 1813 he succeeded to the command of the 13th. For his services in the Pa. he was made bt.-col. The editor of the Military Calendar states that on Waterloo Day Col. Doherty was lying ill at Brussels, suffering from a most severe attack of West Indian fever and ague; but as it is probable that he took part in the operations of the 16th or 17th June, it does not debar him from being added to the roll of Waterloo officers. He undoubtedly received the medal for Waterloo, as well as the C.B. in 1816. Col. Doherty was subsequently made K.C.H. Quitted the service in Dec., 1818, and d. at Bath, 20th Jan., 1837. He was uncle to John Doherty, of Dublin, who held the high post of Chief Justice of Ireland, and dying, in 1850, left, with other male issue, the present Maj. H. Doherty, of the Artillery Militia, who formerly commanded a troop in the 3rd Hussars.

“Weep not; he died as heroes die,
The death permitted to the brave;
Mourn not; he lies where soldiers lie,

1.  The star of the Dawsons was not propitious on the morning of the 18th June, 1815. Whilst one brother had been sent to the rear on the evening of 17th June as officer in charge of the baggage guard of 18th Hussars, the eldest brother, John Dawson, 2nd Earl of Portarlington, had betaken himself that same evening to Brussels or elsewhere. The consequence of this step was that “on the morning of Waterloo, by an unfortunate mistake, he was prevented from joining his regiment in time to command it in the brilliant exploits it performed on that memorable day.” His anguish was extreme. He joined the 18th Hussars, and served with Sir H. Vivian’s brigade in the destructive and successful charge made by that corps towards the close of the battle. In this charge Lord Portarlington had a horse shot under him. No one who knew this nobleman doubted his courage for a moment, but his absence from duty on such an occasion necessitated his retirement from the 23rd Dgns. in Sept., 1815. The Prince Regent showed much kind feeling for Portarlington, and did his best to uphold the unfortunate officer in the eyes of the world. Lord Portarlington purchased a half-pay ensigncy in 86th Foot 21st Oct., 1821. Became lieut. on h. p. 10th Sept., 1825. Capt. h. p. 9th Aug., 1831. This rank was a curious anomaly, as his lordship’s name had been retained in the Army List as a “colonel” ever since Waterloo, and he was also awarded the Waterloo medal. But the one misfortune of his life was ever before him, and the remorse from knowing that he alone was the author of it weighed upon him to such an extent that he took to dissipation, lost a large fortune, and d. at a humble lodging in an obscure London slum, 28th Dec., 1845. In early life he had served in the Pa., and was present at the battle of Talavera. He d. unm.

3.  Younger son of Joseph François Louis de Lautour, who came of an old Alsatian family, for many years a banker at Madras. Served in the Pa. with the 11th Lt. Dgns., and specially distinguished himself at El Bodon. On 7th Sept., 1812, when in command of a squadron of 11th Dgns., he attacked and took prisoners a company of French artillery near Valladolid. At Waterloo he succeeded to the command of the above regt. early in the day, and later on, same day, to the command of the brigade. C.B., and K.H., and bt. of lt.-col.

1.  Afterwards F.-M. Sir Alexander Woodford, G.C.B. and G.C.M.G. Elder brother to Col. John G. Woodford (see Staff). On the death of Sir Ralph Woodford, Bart., Governor of Trinidad, Alexander Woodford became the head of this ancient family. His father was descended maternally from the Brideokes, of classical memory, of whom Dr. Brideoke, the “sometime” chaplain to James, the 4th Earl of Derby, in the reign of Charles I., was a good specimen of the “fighting parson” of olden days. This same Dr. Brideoke became Dean of Salisbury, and, by his extraordinary presence of mind and address, saved the heroic Countess of Derby, and her house at Latham, from being stormed by the Cromwellian army. In like manner did his descendant, Alexander Woodford, defend the farm of Hougomont in the early part of the afternoon of Waterloo Day against the repeated and vigorous attacks of the French. C.B. for Waterloo. Had previously served in the Pa. and received the gold cross and one clasp. Was also K.M.T., and K. St. G. of Russia. Filled high commands in the Ionian Islands and elsewhere. Col.-in-Chf. 40th Foot, 1842. Transferred to the Scots Fusilier Guards 15th Dec., 1861. D. 26th Aug., 1870.

2.  Afterwards Gen. Sir James Macdonell, G.C.B. and K.C.H., Col.-in-Chf. 71st Highland L.I. Was 3rd son of Duncan Macdonell, of Glengarry, and bn. at the family seat in Inverness-shire. Served in the Pa. and also at Maida, for which he recd. the gold medal. Macdonell’s gallant defence of Hougomont is a matter of history. More than once was the place nearly taken by the French. “The French, however,” says Siborne, in his graphic account of the battle of Waterloo, “succeeded in forcing the gate; but the defenders betook themselves to the nearest cover, whence they poured a fire upon the intruders, and then rushing forward a struggle ensued which was distinguished by the most intrepid courage on both sides. At length Lt.-col. Macdonell, Capt. Wyndham, Ensigns Gooch and Hervey, and Sergt. Graham, of the Coldstream Guards, by dint of great personal strength and exertions, combined with extraordinary bravery and perseverance, succeeded in closing the gate against their intruders.” The struggle for the possession of Hougomont went on the whole day until the French retreat set in late in the evening. C.B. and K.M.T. for Waterloo. D. 15th May, 1859.

3.  109The historian of the Coldstream Guards, 2nd son of Wm. M’Kinnon, who was a direct descendant of Lachlan M’Kinnon, of the Isle of Skye, who was made a Knight Banneret by Charles II. on the field of Worcester. Maj. in above regt. 22nd June, 1826, bt.-col. same date. M. a dau. of John Dent, and d. s. p. 22nd June, 1836.

4.  Eldest son of Henry Dawkins, of Over-Norton, co. Oxford. His mother was daughter of the late Gen. Sir H. Clinton, Commander-in-Chief of the British forces in America. Served with his regt. in the Pa. from 1809 to the close of the war, and was badly wounded before Bayonne when the French made a sortie from that town. Bn. 1788. M., 1821, eldest dau. of Thos. Duncombe, of Copgrove, co. York, and had issue. D. in Nov., 1864.

5.  2nd son of Arthur, 1st Visct. Gosford, by Millicent, dau. of Lt.-gen. Edward Pole. Col. Acheson was ordered to defend a certain part of the wood at Hougomont on Waterloo Day. “The enemy made a tremendous attack, and, at the first charge, the colonel’s horse was shot dead. He fell under his horse, and was considerably stunned by the fall, in which situation he must have lain some time, as the enemy had passed and repassed, regarding him as dead. When he had recovered he found himself a prisoner by the weight of his horse. He extricated himself with difficulty by drawing his leg out of his boot.” D. unm. 24th July, 1828.

6.  Afterwards Gen. Sir H. Wyndham, K.C.B., M.P. for Cumberland and Col.-in-Chf. 11th Hussars. Natural son of 3rd Earl of Egremont. Was in eight general engagements in the Pa. “Seeing the carriage of Jerome Bonaparte in the wake of the general retreat of the French at Waterloo, he made a dashing attempt to capture Napoleon’s brother, but Jerome leaped out by one door while Wyndham opened the other.” Succeeded, in 1845, to the Egremont estates. D. s. p. at Cockermouth Castle, 2nd Aug. 1860, aged 70.

7.  Afterwards Gen. Sir George Bowles, K.C.B., Col.-in-Chf. 1st West India Regt. and Lieut. of the Tower of London. 2nd son of Wm. Bowles, of Heale House, Wilts. Served in North Germany in 1805–1806, under Lord Cathcart. Present at the siege and capture of Copenhagen in 1807. Served in the Pa., and was present at most of the general actions. Bt.-maj. for Waterloo. Master of the Household to the Queen 1845–1851. D. in London 21st May, 1876.

8.  Quitted the service in 1823. It appears from Plantagenet Harrison’s History of Yorkshire, that the family of “Sowerby” dates back to the reign of Henry I., when one “Sueni” was “Lord of Sowerby” in Cumberland. Some interesting particulars regarding the Sowerby family are to be found in Mr. Harrison’s book, but unfortunately they are particulars of the far-away Norman times.

9.  Afterwards Gen. W.L. Walton, Col.-in-Chf. 5th Fusiliers. Son of the Dowager Lady Strachan. Served forty years in the Coldstream Guards, six of which were in command of the regt. Served at Copenhagen in 1807 and during the early part of the Par. War. Served also in Belgium, Holland, and France from Nov., 1813, to Nov., 1818. Was appointed Bde.-maj. to the 2nd Bde. of Guards (having been selected for that post by Sir John Byng) on the march from Waterloo to Paris, in place of Capt. Stothert, killed in action. M., 15th Aug., 1832, Harriet, dau. of P.H. Lovell, of Cole Park, Wilts. D., 11th Jan., 1865.

10.  Has barely a title to appear in this list, as he was taken ill the evening of 17th of June, 1815, and sent to Brussels. But as the Coldstreams were 110under fire on 16th June, 1815, having arrived at Quatre Bras at 4 P.M. that day, after a march of twenty-five miles from Enghien, it would be scarcely fair to omit this officer, who appears to have received the Waterloo medal. Was son of Gen. Andrew Cowell, Lt.-col. Coldstream Guards, of Coleshill, Bucks, by Martha Justine, younger dau. of Sir T. Stepney, Bart., of Llanelly (widow of Sir F. Head, Bart.). Took the additional surname of Stepney by royal licence. Created a baronet in 1871. M., 1820, Lady Mary Annesley, who d. 1821. 2ndly, in 1823, Euphemia, dau. of Gen. John Murray, of Castle Murray, co. Donegal, and had issue. Lt.-col., ret., 1830. K.H. for his services in the Pa. D. 15th May, 1877.

11.  Had previously served in the Rl. Fusiliers. D. at Brussels, 26th June, 1815, from his wounds.

12.  Youngest son of Sir George Blackman, Bart., by Mary, eldest surviving dau. of Lt.-col. Henry Harnage, of Belleswardine, Salop. Buried in the orchard at Hougomont, in the defence of which place he lost his life.

13.  The family of Hotham has furnished some distinguished officers to both our army and navy—especially to the latter service. But the most notable member of this ancient family was John de Hotham, Bishop of Ely, Lord Chancellor of England from 1316–1320. He was a great favourite with the young King Edward III., and had the choosing of a wife for that monarch. The story goes that he selected Philippa of Hainault “on account of the largeness of her hips,” which he prognosticated meant a large family, and the shrewd chancellor-bishop was not far wrong, as Queen Philippa had seven sons. Lord Hotham, who served in the Pa., and was wounded at Salamanca, was eldest son of Col. Beaumont Hotham, of the Coldstreams, by Philadelphia, dau. of Sir John Dyke, Bart. Bn. 9th Aug., 1794. Lt.-col. unattached, 24th Dec., 1825. Gen. on retired list 1865. D. unm., 12th Dec., 1870.

15.  Eldest son of Gen. Lord Forbes (premier Baron of Scotland), by Eliz., eldest dau. of Walter Hunter, of Polmood, co. Peebles. D. as capt. and lt.-col. in this regt. 25th Feb., 1835.

“He had a bow bent in his hand,
Made of a trusty tree;
An arrow of a cloth-yeard long
Unto the head drew he.

So right his shaft he set,
The grey goose wing that was therein
In his heart-blood was set.”

“Hail, youthful Ashton, in thy field of blood!
Thou bloom of honour gathered in the bud!
Thy prime career of martial life began
With spirit fit to shine in glory’s van;
Comrades who groan’d to see thee yield thy breath,
Yet almost envied thy heroic death.
Accept thy country’s praise! thy mother’s tears!
Whose heavenly sorrow Heaven itself reveres!
Kissing in agony affliction’s rod,
She yields her pride unmurm’ring to her God.”

F.  The 3rd Batt. of the Royal Scots, which was reduced in 1817, distinguished itself in a particular manner at Quatre Bras. “Being removed from the centre of the 5th Division, it charged and routed a column of the enemy. It was then formed in a square to receive the cavalry, and though repeated attacks were made, not the slightest impression was produced. Wherever the lancers and cuirassiers presented themselves they found a stern and undismayed front which they vainly endeavoured to penetrate.” Mudford’s Historical Account of the Campaign in the Netherlands, in 1815.

Commanded the above regt. at Waterloo until disabled by wounds. C.B. and K.St.A. of Russia, Lt.-col. 44th Foot, 29th Aug., 1829. For many years was British Consul at Belize, Central America, where he was much esteemed.

G.  121This regt. had just returned from active service in America and landed at Ostend a few days before Waterloo was fought. In fact, Gen. Lambert’s brigade only reached Waterloo by a forced march just as the battle was commencing. Several captains of the 1st Batt. 4th Foot had been killed in the attack on New Orleans—hence the small number of captains present at Waterloo. Siborne gives the names of six additional captains as present with this regt. at Waterloo, but as the official Army List for 1817 does not credit them with having the Waterloo medal, the Editor has been reluctantly compelled to omit their names.

H.  At the close of the Par. War the British Army was reduced to a peace footing. The 3rd Batt. of the 14th Foot survived this general reduction until the spring of 1815, when the dreaded order for its disbanding arrived. Before this became an accomplished fact the escape of Napoleon from Elba, and the consequent war with France, put a stop to further reductions. The 3rd Batt. 14th was ordered to Belgium. Being composed chiefly of very young recruits, the 14th were ordered to Antwerp to join the garrison there, but through their colonel’s personal application to Gen. Lord Hill, this order was countermanded by Wellington himself, who inspected the regt. from the window of his hotel at Brussels. “They are a very pretty little battalion,” said he to Lord Hill; “tell them they may join the grand division as they wish.” And so it came to pass that the “peasants,” as the battalion of young bucks were waggishly styled, took part in the “combat of giants.”

1.  Youngest son of the Rev. Thomas Holmes Tidy, chaplain to H.M. 26th Foot, and afterwards rector of Red Marshall, co. Durham, by Henrietta Augusta, dau. of the Rev. Wm. Skelly, by Lady Betty Gordon, dau. of Alexander, Duke of Gordon. If “fighting blood” is hereditary, then must “Frank Tidy,” as he was always called, have had a good share, for he was maternally descended from Charles Mordaunt, the “fighting” Earl of Peterborough, and had for his uncle the gallant Francis Skelly, maj. in the 71st Highlanders, who gained renown at the siege of Seringapatam. Joined the 43rd Regt. in Ireland as a volunteer at the age of 16, and was soon gazetted an ensign. When serving with his regt. in the West Indies “a 125mortality of from ten to thirteen men a day reduced the 43rd to 96 rank and file, and Guadaloupe being disputed inch by inch, the 43rd, at the time of its capture at Berville, did not contain more than two officers and twenty men fit for duty.” Tidy was confined for 15 months on board a hulk, subject to the tyranny and cruelty of Victor Hughes, thence sent to France, and eventually allowed to return to England on parole. Appointed adjt. of the 43rd. Promoted capt. 1st West India Regt. 1798; in 1799 exchanged to the Royal Scots. A.D.C. to Sir George Beckwith in the West Indies. Maj. 8th W.I.

Southwell, dau. of Edward Lord de Clifford. 127England may thank Wm. III. for having given us the Keppels 200 years ago. It was this monarch who brought over Arnold Joost Van Keppel (descended from Walter Van Keppel, Lord of Keppel, 1179) as a page in 1688, and who raised him from one high post to another until he became Earl of Albemarle, a Knight of the Garter, and gen. of the Dutch forces in 1702. This nobleman fought under Marlborough in the wars of Queen Anne, and our last Stuart monarch stood sponsor to Lord Albemarle’s eldest son, who succeeded his father as William Anne 2nd Earl—a general officer and British ambassador to Paris. The two eldest sons of the 2nd earl were equally distinguished in their respective professions—the army and navy. Viscount Bury was A.D.C. to the Duke of Cumberland at Fontenoy and Culloden. He subsequently attained the rank of lt.-gen. and was com.-in-chf. at the reduction of the Havannah, which brought him much renown. His brother Augustus became famous as Adm. Keppel, and for his eminent services was created Visct. Keppel, of Elvedon, Suffolk (extinct). Gen. Visct. Bury succeeded as 3rd Earl, and it was his grandson, the sixth earl, who joined the 3rd Batt. 14th Foot six weeks before Waterloo. The following Waterloo anecdote is given by Mrs. Ward in her memoir of Col. Tidy (already referred to), and is corroborated by Lord Albemarle himself in his interesting autobiography published in 1876:—

“Mr. Keppel was sitting on a drum just in front of my father’s mare when she was shot—he was even stroking the poor thing’s face at the time that the ball struck her down, broke the bit of the bridle and knocked him head over heels, drum and all. The animal plunging in her agony, threw the square into great confusion, and her misery was speedily put an end to by the soldiers’ bayonets.” On the 25th May, 1820, Ensign Keppel (then in 22nd Foot) was promoted lieut. Exchanged to 20th Foot, 1821; Capt. 62nd Foot, 1825; and in 1827 was promoted to an unattached majority. Lt.-Col., 1841; Col., 1854; M.-Gen., 1858; Lieut.-Gen., 1866; and Gen. 1874. M. 4th Aug., 1831, Susan, dau. of Sir Coutts Trotter, Bart., and by her (who d. 3rd Aug., 1885) had issue. D. 21st Feb., 1891.

35.  Paymaster 47th Foot 2nd May, 1816. Serving in 1824.

36.  “For some time after the firing had begun,” writes Lord Albemarle in his account of Waterloo, “Mrs. Ross, our quartermaster’s wife, remained with the regt. She was no stranger to a battle-field, and had received a severe wound in Whitelock’s disastrous retreat from Buenos Ayres (1807) at the time her husband was a sergt. in the 95th. She was at length persuaded to withdraw, and retired to the belfry of Waterloo Church.”

37.  Commissioned ensign 14th Foot 27th June, 1815. Out of the regt. before 1st Jan., 1817.

38.  Out of the regt. in 1816.

J.  This regt. was for many years known as the “Slashers.” This name is said to have been first given in the early part of the American War, when the regt. had swords, which they used to some purpose. The 28th might have been appropriately called “Prescott’s Own,” as the Col.-in-Chf., Gen. Robert Prescott, had been closely associated with this regt. for 50 years or longer, and was lt.-col. commanding for about 12 years. From 1789 until his death in Dec., 1815, he was col.-in-chf., and took the deepest interest in all that concerned his old corps. He had more than one godson in the regt., whose fathers had fought under him in America, whom he advanced in their military career by his own personal interest. And the 28th were equally attached to their old colonel, who had seen much service in America and the West Indies, where he held high commands. Like many others, before and since, who have filled responsible situations in countries where the native or “barbarian” element is largely represented, Gen. Prescott was fully imbued with the idea of his own great importance. An amusing instance of this is found in an order issued by him when commanding the troops in Canada:—

Lieut.-General Prescott’s Orders.
“St. Pierres, 16th June, 1794.

“Whereas Vice-Adm. Sir John Jervis has given orders, I am told, frequently here on shore, and particularly by note dated off Point Petre, June 11th, 1794, which must have arisen from great ignorance or great presumption and arrogance.

137“If from ignorance, poor man! he is to be pitied, but if from presumption and arrogance, he is to be checked.

“It is, therefore, Lt.-General Prescott’s orders that in future no attention whatever is to be given to such notes or orders, and his signature to such to be as little regarded as that of John Oakes or Peter Styles.”

A martinet he lived and a martinet he died. His last whisper on his death-bed was an inquiry as to whether there was a Hessian sentry at his door. Although he did not die in harness the veteran “Slasher” died under the colours of the 28th, as on the death of the late Robert Prescott (grandson of the above) the old colours of the 28th were found among his effects and returned to the regt. They had doubtless been worked by the fair fingers of the old general’s wife.

Was an excellent horseman, and on one occasion in the Pa., when employed on staff duty, he was galloping after the retreating French when he came on an open portmanteau, in which he espied some silver spoons and forks of an antique pattern. As he galloped past he bent in the saddle and made a grab with his right hand at the glittering contents. His dexterity was rewarded with several specimens of old French plate. This anecdote is given on the authority of a relative of the Editor, who used to meet the old general in society, who told the story himself. Made bt. lt.-col. and C.B. for his gallantry at Waterloo.

1.  This gallant officer received the thanks of Sir Thomas Picton for his services at Quatre Bras where he (Hamilton) was sev. wnded. After the battle it was thought necessary to amputate his leg; and three times had the tourniquet encircled his limb, preparatory to amputation, when each time the surgeon was called elsewhere. It was then decided to let the leg take its chance, and Hamilton eventually recovered. C.B. for Waterloo. Quitted the service in 1829 with rank of Col. All his service had been spent in “the old three tens,” as the 30th were called, and he had fought with them in Egypt and in the Pa. Had the gold medal for Salamanca. D. at Woolwich, 4th June, 1838. In his obituary notice, given in the United Service Journal, it is stated that he was nearly related to the noble house of Lothian. Whatever family he may have belonged to, he did it credit. He left a widow and two sons.

4.  It appears that this officer acted as an additional A.D.C. to Gen. Sir T. Picton, at Waterloo. At the second funeral of Picton in St. Paul’s Cathedral one of the mourners was the Rev. Dr. MʻNabb, from Canada, nephew of the above. The antiquity of the MʻNabb is delightfully illustrated by the well-known remark of one of their clan that “at the flood they did not need to take refuge in Noah’s Ark, as the MʻNabbs had a boat of their own!”

33.  Brother to the great tragedian. Joined the 2nd Batt. 30th Foot, as a volunteer, in 1814, at the age of 16. Served under Lord Lynedoch in Holland. At Waterloo, when only an ensign, commanded the light company towards the close of the battle. His private journal, in which he gives his experiences at Waterloo, is quoted from in Sir H. Havelock’s military work, entitled Three Main Questions of the Day (published in 1867) in order to show how the bravest cavalry failed again and again, at Waterloo, in breaking through the infantry squares when those squares were well provided with ammunition in addition to their bayonets. “Here come these fools again,” growled the 30th rank and file as they prepared to pour a destructive fire on the advancing French cuirassiers, which invariably emptied many saddles and sent the remainder from whence they came. Served at the siege of Asseerghur, and was aftds. milit. sec. to Sir John Wilson in Ceylon. Was promoted maj. h. p. unattached, 22nd Nov., 1839. Wrote the Life of Marshal Suvarow, which was published after his death. D. at Clevedon, 4th Nov., 1848.

34.  H. p. 1831.

35.  An amusing anecdote relative to this officer is given in the United Service Journal for 1838. Col. A. Hamilton of this regt., had a very valuable charger at Waterloo, and knowing that if it was shot in the battle he would only get the Government price of £20 for another charger, he exchanged horses, before going into action at Quatre Bras, with his steady old quartermaster, who, being a non-combatant, was to remain in the rear. The quartermaster’s horse was what is called a “safe convenience,” but the colonel’s charger was very high-spirited and fresh. Unaccustomed to the quietude of his position in the rear of the army, he fretted and fumed at being kept back from the excitement going on in front. His rider had a bad time of it, and was a source of much amusement to the idlers and 144“non-effectives” in the rearward. The narrator of this incident says that on the evening of the 16th June, 1815, Sir W. Ponsonby sent his A.D.C. to offer to buy Hamilton’s fine charger (his owner being wounded), but the bargain hung fire in some way, and the gallant Ponsonby lost his life on the 18th June, as we have seen, from being badly mounted.

36.  Appointed assistant-surgeon 24th July, 1808. Taken prisoner at Talavera and sent to France. Exchanged. Rejoined in Portugal, after Busaco. Served at Fuentes d’Onor, Ciudad Rodrigo, Badajoz, Salamanca, and capture of Madrid. Taken prisoner after siege of Burgos when in charge of the wounded. H. p. 1817.

K.  In 1793 the Hon. Arthur Wellesley was appointed lt.-col. of this regt. and commanded it for nearly ten eventful years. Wellington never forgot his old regiment, and it is recorded that he honoured Sir Colin Halkett’s brigade with several visits on Waterloo Day. In one visit late in the afternoon of that eventful day, he inquired “How they were?” The answer was that two-thirds of their number were down, and that the rest were so exhausted that leave to retire, even for a short time, was most desirable, some of the foreign corps, who had not suffered, to take their place. Gen. Halkett was told that the issue of the battle depended on the unflinching 151front of the British troops, and that even a change of place was hazardous in the extreme. Halkett impressively said, “Enough, my lord; we stand here until the last man falls.”

1.  The death of Sir R. Macara at Quatre Bras was inexpressibly sad. “He was wounded about the middle of the engagement, and was in the act of being carried off the field by four of his men, when a party of French unexpectedly surrounded and made them prisoners. Perceiving by the colonel’s decorations that he was an officer of rank they immediately cut him down with his attendants.” His relations obtained Macara’s Waterloo medal, which was for long in the Tancred Collection. A touching poem to Robert Macara’s memory is to be found in the Waterloo Memoirs; the following are the last three verses of a pæan of praise sung by the Goddess of Fame:—

“Here the Goddess ceased her lay;
Weak, her wings refused to fly;
Faint, her voice forbore to say
How Macara dared to die.
“Be it, then, to friendship giv’n
Such a warrior’s name to save,
While ’tis borne on breeze of heav’n
That he found a soldier’s grave.
“By unequal hosts oppos’d,
Still he proved his valour true;
For his bright career was clos’d
On the plains of Waterloo!”

2.  Succeeded to the command after Macara’s death. C.B. for Waterloo. Had served in the Pa., and received the gold medal and one clasp for Fuentes d’Onor and Salamanca. A.D.C. to George IV., 1825.

He had m., 11th April, 1818, Eliza., dau. of J. Macnabb, of Arthurstone, Perth.

3.  In Capt. George Jones’s Waterloo Memoirs is to be found an interesting letter regarding Major Menzies of the 42nd, who was dangerously wounded at Quatre Bras. The major’s name is omitted in this letter:—“On the 16th June, Major ——, of the 42nd, preferring to fight on foot, in front of his men, had given his horse to hold to a little drummer-boy. After severe fighting he fell wounded near a brave private, Donald Mackintosh. The 159drummer left the horse to assist his friend Donald. A French lancer attempted to seize the horse, on which the prostrate Donald exclaimed, ‘Hoot man, ye mauna tak that beast, ’t belangs to our captain here!’ The lancer, little heeding, seized the horse. Donald, with a last expiring effort, loaded his musket and shot the lancer dead. A French cavalry officer, seeing the major bestirring himself, rode up and attempted to dispatch him with his sword. As he stooped from his saddle, the major seized his leg, and managed to pull him off his horse upon him. Another lancer, observing this struggle, galloped up and tried to spear the major and relieve his officer; but the former, by a sudden jerk and desperate exertion, placed the French officer uppermost, who received the mortal thrust below his cuirass and continued lying upon the major’s body for near ten minutes, sword in hand. A pause in the battle permitted some men of the 42nd to carry their officer into the square of the 92nd, where he was found to have received sixteen wounds.” Acted as major after Sir R. Macara’s death at Quatre Bras until wounded himself. Promoted maj. 18th June, 1815. Left the regt. in 1828. D. in 1854.

1.  Afterwards Gen. John Millett Hamerton, C.B., Col.-in-Chf. 55th Regt. The following obituary notice appeared in the Illustrated London News in Feb., 1855:—“This highly-distinguished officer died on the 27th ult., at Orchardstown, his country residence in Tipperary, after a short illness. He was a soldier from his youth, and obtained his first commission of cornet at the early age of fifteen, in 1792. In 1794 he served under the Duke of York; in 1795 embarked for the West Indies; in 1796 assisted at the capture of St. Lucia; and, in 1801, fought with distinction in Egypt. Subsequently he took part in the Pa. campaigns, in command of the 1st Batt. of the 44th. At Waterloo he bravely led on the 2nd Batt. of the same gallant regiment, and was left for dead on that bloody field, having received several severe wounds in the head and thigh. Owing to the attachment of a faithful non-commissioned officer, Sergeant Ryan, who brought his wounded and insensible commander under the care of skilful medical treatment, he slowly recovered, and with his devoted follower returned home. A chivalric soldier, an honourable and most amiable gentleman, General Hamerton is deeply lamented by all who came within the influence of his high and endearing qualities.” He m. Mrs. Hennessy (née Sullivan), and had issue.

17.  Siborne immortalises the name of this officer, in his history of the battle of Quatre Bras, as follows:—“A French lancer gallantly charged at the colours of the 44th, and severely wounded Ensign Christie, who carried one of them, by a thrust of his lance, which, entering the left eye, penetrated to the lower jaw. The Frenchman then endeavoured to seize the standard, but the brave Christie, notwithstanding the agony of his wound, with a presence of mind almost unequalled, flung himself upon it—not to save himself, but to preserve the honour of his regiment. As the colour fluttered in its fall, the Frenchman tore off a portion of the silk with the point of his lance; but he was not permitted to bear the fragment beyond the ranks. Both shot and bayoneted by the nearest of the soldiers of the 44th, he was borne to the earth, paying with the sacrifice of his life for his display of unavailing bravery.” Promoted lieut. 26th Oct., 1815.

20.  One of the greatest heroes of the Par. War. Led the Forlorn Hope on two successive occasions during the siege of Badajoz, in 1811, when Fort San Christoval was assaulted by the British. The second assault, on the night of 9th June, is graphically described in Reminiscences of a Subaltern:—“At ten o’clock at night, 200 men moved forward to the assault, Dyas leading the advance. He made a circuit until he came exactly opposite to the breach instead of entering the ditch as before; a sheep-path, which he remembered in the evening while he and Major MacGeechy made their observations, served to guide them to the part of the glacis in front of the breach. Arrived at this spot, the detachment descended the ditch, and found themselves at the foot of the breach; but here an unlooked-for event stopped their further progress, and would have been in itself sufficient to have caused the failure of the attack. The ladders were entrusted to a party composed of a foreign corps in our pay, called ‘the Chasseurs Britanniques’; these men, the moment they reached the glacis, glad to rid themselves of their load, flung the ladders into the ditch, instead of sliding them between the palisadoes; they fell across them, and so stuck fast, and being made of heavy green wood, it was next to impossible to move, much less place them upright against the breach, and almost all the storming party were massacred in the attempt. Placed in a situation so frightful, it required a man of the most determined character to continue the attack. Every officer of the detachment had fallen, Major MacGeechy one of the first; and at this moment Dyas and about five-and-twenty men were all that remained of the 200. 167Undismayed by these circumstances, the soldiers persevered, and Dyas, although wounded and bleeding, succeeded in disentangling one ladder, and placing it against what was considered to be the breach, it was speedily mounted, but upon arriving at the top of the ladder, instead of the breach, it was found to be a stone wall that had been constructed in the night, and which completely cut off all communication between the ditch and the bastion, so that when the men reached the top of this wall, they were, in effect, as far from the breach as if they had been in their own batteries. From this faithful detail it is evident that the soldiers did as much as possible to ensure success, and that failure was owing to a combination of untoward circumstances over which the troops had no control. Nineteen men were all that escaped.” The gallantry of Ensign Joseph Dyas was proclaimed to the world in Wellington’s account of the two assaults of San Christoval, but for all that a grateful War Office allowed him to remain a subaltern for ten years longer!

“I know a man of whom ’tis truly said
He bravely twice a storming party led,
And volunteered both times; now here’s the rub,
The gallant fellow still remains a sub.”

In Dec. 1820, owing to the representations of Col. Gurwood and Sir H. Torrens, the Duke of York promoted Dyas a capt. in the 2nd Ceylon Regt., but impaired health obliged him to retire on h. p. 9th Aug., 1821. D. 28th Apr., 1850 at Ballymuir, Ireland.

Wellington saw the movement, and instantly sent to desire him to continue it.” Col. Chesney, the able author of Waterloo Lectures in commenting on the steadfast manner in which the British Guards faced the advancing Imperial Guards on the summit of the hill, says: “While on their left, Colborne, peerless among all the brave men who led Wellington’s battalions, coolly formed in line the 52nd, and without other prompting than that of his own genius for battle, advanced against their flank.” Created Baron Seaton, of Seaton, Devon, 14th Dec., 1839.

On the 25th June, the landing of this small force was effected at the point of Quilmes, up the River Plate, without opposition. He was present in the affairs of the 26th and 27th, which terminated in the surrender of the city of Buenos Ayres to the British; and was with the troops employed in dispersing the enemy from the vicinity of the city, on the 1st August; at the defending of the city on the 10th, 11th, and 12th, when the British were obliged to capitulate, and become prisoners of war; and was marched, as such, a considerable distance into the interior of the country. He next served with the army in Portugal, and was present at the action of Roleia, and battle of Vimiero. He served under the late Sir John Moore in Spain; was present the whole of that campaign, and at the battle of Corunna. He embarked in July, 1809, on the expedition to the Scheldt, and was present at the siege of Flushing; he returned with his regt. to England in December, and in May, 1810, was ordered to join the 2nd batt. in Scotland; and shortly after the command of the batt. devolved on him. In Jan., 1814, he proceeded to join the 1st batt. in Spain, landed at St. Sebastian, and marched in charge of a detachment for the 2nd division of the army, which he joined in Aire on the 10th of March, and served with it in the different operations that took place against the enemy from that period until a short time after the battle of Toulouse, 10th April, 1814.

Their Colonel, at once pushing his horse lengthwise across the space, said, with a smile, ‘Well, my lads, if you won’t, I must.’ Immediately his horse was led back to his proper place and the ranks closed up by men still more devoted than before.” C.B. and K.W. for Waterloo.

He was in most of the Peninsular battles, and was desperately wounded at Waterloo at the close of the action, only two men of his company being then left, and was confined at Brussels until his recent return to England.” 187But John Garland did not die in 1816, and lived to become a bt. maj. on unattached list in 1825, and a bt. lt.-col. in 1838.

Morris, of the 73rd, in his Recollections of Military Service, records that Ensign Deacon was shot through an arm at Quatre Bras and conveyed by the baggage-train to Brussels. “The officer’s wife, who with her three children had been left with the baggage guard, passed the whole night in searching for her husband among the wounded. At length she was informed he had been conveyed to Brussels.... Conveyances there were none to be had, and she was in the last state of pregnancy. She made the best of her way on foot with her children, exposed to the terrific storm of thunder, lightning, and rain, which continued without intermission for about ten hours.
