Waterloo – a battle that lasted two years.

With the anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo only 4 days away, here’s an article concentrating on the experience of one ordinary cavalryman who survived it.

If anyone’s wondering why I’ve picked up on a piece featuring a ‘heavy’ regiment, the 1st (Kings) Regiment of Dragoon Guards’ most recent renaming was to that of 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards.

To the uninitiated, that’s The Welsh Cavalry! 🙂
