PREFACE TO SECOND EDITION. 



TIME does not diminish the interest of Waterloo, for that combat 
of giants is iudissolubly 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, 1 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-com- 
missioned officers and men (given in Part III.) who served at 
Waterloo, and subsequently received commissions in the British 
army.

INTRODUCTION TO FIRST EDITION. 



Ah! Je les tiens done, ces Anglais I NAPOLEON. 

NEVER since the days of Oliver Cromwell bad 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 Con- 
siderations 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, 



INTRODUCTION TO FIRST EDITION. 



must be our efforts, but mighty also is the need." The idea of 
a Freiich 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 con- 
fiscating all British property. And yet in 1807 Napoleon 
had not yet reached the zenith of his power. For the next 



INTRODUCTION TO FIRST EDITION. XI 



five years he held the destinies of nearly the whole of Europe 
in his own hands. Monarchies of long standing were dis- 
established 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 Fontaiuebleau. 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 Ameiica 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 re- 
mainder 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 comrnissions 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 



Xll INTRODUCTION TO FIRST EDITION. 

" 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 lachete of their colonel, who, 
when ordered to lead his regiment to the charge, declined to do 
so, sayiog 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 
ouly 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 Bruns- 
wick) at Quatre Bras. Of the Nassau, Dutch, and Belgian troops 
it is ouly 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 iu 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 loth of June 
of about 128,000 men* 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 ^ere all equally devoted to their 
beloved emperor. " No army," says Colonel Chesney, iu 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 

* Lord Wolseley, in his Decline and Fall of A'apoleon, says the French 
army consisted of about 123,000 men of all arms and 344 guns. ED. 



INTRODUCTION TO FIRST EDITION. xiii 

day. 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 Liguy by Napoleon on the 
previous day, and which was supposed to be in full retreat on 
Namur and Liege, so that, in round numbers, Napoleon was him- 
self 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 Kellermanu, whose 
fame as a cavalry general dated from Marengo. And General 
Moutou (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 Liitzen, 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. "1 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 general- 
ship, 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 shire 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 



XIV INTRODUCTION TO FIRST EDITION. 

order, probably, as Blucher was able to do after his defeat at 
Ligny. As it was, our troops bore the whole bruut 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. 

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 com- 
missions 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" 



* " I should not do justice to my feelings, or to Marshal Blucher and the 
Prussian Army, if I did not attribute the success of this arduous day to the 
cordial and timely assistance 1 received from them." Wellington' 1 a despatch 
to Earl Bathurst.

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. 
Caesar, or Mr. Alexander, so why should I speak of Mr. Wellington ? "

With one stride he was beside the chair of the Frenchman, and with 
the sp. j ed of lightning, he seized his nose by one hand while with the

2nd son of Capt. Robert Lambert, R.N. (2nd son of Sir John Lambert,

ceeded 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 Americana 
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

MAJOR-GENERAL. 

Sir Colquboun 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 wheu 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 1 " 

Colquhoun Grant commanded the 72nd Regt. in the expedition to the 
Cape of Good Hope, under Sir David Baird, in 1806, and on 8'h 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 thou.ht 
proper to resent his conduct in so gross a manner, it remained for him to 
seek the usual reparation. " Oh 1 " exclaimed Mulcahy, " if it's for fight- 
ing 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 It.-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. Succeeded to a

MAJOR-GENERAL. 

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 1 " 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. Received the Russian Order 
of St. Vladimir and the Dutch Order of Wilhelm. C.-in-C. at Madras,

Killed at Quatre Bras. Had ridden and won a race at the Grammont 
Races on 13th June, and was dead on the 16th. Was acting as 
adjutant to Lord Saltoun. His horse, a fine thoroughbred, refused a 
fence, and tried to wheel round. As Lord Saltoun was passing down a 
path close by, a body fell across his horse's neck and rolled off. 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

In 1819 was on the staff in Ceylon, and in 1824 was appointed Gov. of

Wellington heard of this officer's capture, he quietly remarked, " Col. 
Waters will not remain long in the hands of the enemy." Being a 
reckless and dare-devil rider Waters made so sure of his speedy escape 
that he mockingly told his captors they would not have him on 
their hands for long. Such proved the case, for having managed to get 
his spurs sharpened, he literally " rode away " from his pursuers one fine

DEPUTY QUARTERMASTER-GENERAL. 

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 Lan- ey, 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. 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 B.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 ami 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 recog- 
nized, than the order to mount was given. Hervey and his orderly, 
finding the odda 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 tiying 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. 
1 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,

after Waterloo. 

Lt. Basil Jackson, Rl. Staff Corps. 

The following memoir of this distinguished veteran appeared in the

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 J815, 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

year 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 Kideau 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 Boss, 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. 



COMMANDANT AT HEAD-QUARTERS. 

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 wouuded. 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 
venezigi! Petlts potts allez la!'" (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.

1 3rd 8on of Sir Gervase Clifton, Bart., of Clifton, Notts, representative of a 
very ancient family. Served throughout the Par. War, and received the gold 
medal and one clasp for Fuentes d'Onor and Vittoria. On the death of 
Sir Wm. Ponsonby at Waterloo, the command of the 2nd Cavalry Brigade 
devolved upon Col. Clifton. G.C.B., K.C.H., K.S.A., gen. in the army and 
Col.-in-Chf. 1st Dgns. D. 7th March, 1869, unm. 

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 com- 
manded 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. Miss Dewar, 
of Clapham, and left at his death, 10th Nov., 1847, three daughters, who 
bequeathed the High Croft Estate at Malvern to their cousin, Admiral 
Dorville, the late possessor, the last male representative of an ancient 
family, on every page of whose eventful career in the navy the word 
t; Hero " is plainly visible. 

3 " A most scientific and dexterous swordsman." Did good work in the 
famous charge of his regt. at Waterloo. A musket ball lodged in his knee, 
which could never be extracted, and helped to shorten his life. Made bt.-lt.-

year. 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

was gone, but the scabbard and silken Fash remained. These relics were

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 scrv. d 
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-joiried 
the Greys before the close of the battle. Placed on h. p. 25th March, 1816. 
D. at Woodcot, co. Haddington, 15th Sept., 1820.

tery. 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.

1 Aftds. Maj.-Gen. Sir Frederick Cavendish Ponsonby, K.C.B. and K.M.T., 
Gov. of Malta. 2nd son of Frederick, 3rd Earl of Beasborough, 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: u Tit n'est pas wwrf, coquin," and struck his lance through the 
English officer's back. " My head dropped" (wrote Ponsonby in his subse- 
quent 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 English- 
man, 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. Ponsonby 
had received seven wounds ; a surgeon slept in his room, and he was saved 
by continual bleeding 120 ounces in two days, besides the great loss of 
blood on the field. Narratire. M., 1825, Emily, youngest dau. of 3rd Earl 
Bathurst, and had issue. D. llth Jan., 1837.

5 Had served with distinction in the Pa. D. of his wounds soon after

6 Quitted the service in 1822. 

7 Promoted bt.-maj. 21st Jan., 1819, for distinguished conduct in the field

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. 

2 Made C.B. for Waterloo. Served in the Pa. 2nd son of Samuel Boyse, 
of Barrow, New Ross, co. Wexford, by Dorothea, dau. of Shapland Carew, of 
Castleboro, same county. D., unm., 1833. 

3 There were three of this family in the regt. in 1815. Brook Lawrence 
served thirty-eight years in this regt., and waa made bt.-lt.-col. for Waterloo. 
He d. at Brompton llth Aug., 1823, aged 59. 

4 Son of Col. P. Doherty. Promoted maj. in this regt. 8th Dec., 1818. 
D. at Bangalore 12th June, 1819.

" Weep not ; he died as heroes die, 

The death permitted to the brave ; 
Mourn not ; he lies where soldiers lie,

through the slums of Bristol a burly blacksmith rushed out of his shop, 
sledge-hammer in hand, and aimed a blow at the officer's head. As the 
smith bent his head with the weight of the hammer the subaltern's sword

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 con- 
sequence 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 Portar- 
lington 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 Portar- 
lington 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. umn.

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

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 reed, 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 Coldstrsam 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.

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, regard- 
ing 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.

CoL-in-Chf. llth Hussars. Natural son of 3rd Earl of Egremont. Was in

to the Egremont estates. D. s. p. at Cockermouth Castle, 2nd Aug. 1860, 
aged 70. 

1 Afterwards Gen. Sir George Bowles, K.C.B., Col.-in-Chf. 1st West India

House, Wilts. Served in North Germany in 1805-1806, under Lord Cath- 
cart. Present at the siege and capture of Copenhagen in 1807. Served in

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 "Suerii" was "Lord of Sowerby" in Cumber- 
land. 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

under 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

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 Phila- 
delphia, dau. of Sir John Dyke, Bart. Bn. 9th Aug., 1 794. Lt.-col. unattached,

"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. 

"Against Sir Hugh Moutgomerie 

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

18 This officer's name is given as Crawford on the memorial tablet at 
Waterloo. 

19 The following -in menwrlam verses were written soon after Waterloo. 

"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 !

* The 3rd Batt. of the Royal Scots, which was reduced in 1817, dis- 
tinguished 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." Mud- 
ford's Historical Account of the Cunipaiyn in the Netherlands, in 1815.

THE WATERLOO ROLL CALL. 121 



* This 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 
briga le 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. 

1 Served throughout the Pa\ War and reed, the gold cross for the battles 
of Badajoz, Salamanca, Vittoria, and siege of St. Sebastian. C.B. for Water- 
loo. 2nd son of Francis Brooke, of Colebrooke, by Hannah, dau. of Henry

* 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 Mordauut, the " lighting " 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 war, soon 
gazetted an ensign. When serving with his regt. in the West Indies " a

THE WATERLOO ROLL CALL. 127 

England 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, 11 71) ) 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 sous 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 It.-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, arid 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 follow- 
ing Waterloo anecdote is given by Mrs. Ward in her memoir of Col. Tidy 
(already referred to), and ia 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.,185S; Lieut.-Gen., 1866; and Gen. 1874. M. 4th Aug.,

1885) had issue. D. 21st Feb., 1891,

36 u j? or S ome 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."

* 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.- ; n-Chf., 
Gen. Robert Prescott, had been closely associated with this regt. for no years 
or longer, and was It.-col. commanding for about 12 years. From 1780 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 
equalty attached to their old colonel, who had seen much service in America 
and the West Indies, where he held hiph 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 hi< own great importance. An amusing 
instance of this is found in an order issued by him when commanding the 
troops in Canada : 

LIEUT.-GENEBAL PRESCOTT' .4 ORDERS. 

"St. Pierres, 16th June, 1794. 

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



THE WATERLOO ROLL CALL. 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. 

1 Succeeded to the command of the 8th Brigade after Quatre Bras.

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. It.-col. and C.B. for his 
gallantry at Waterloo. He was son of Richard Lluellyn, of South Witham,

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 >f ought 
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. M'Nabb, from Canada, nephew of the 
above. The antiquity of the M'Nabb 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 M'Nabbs had a boat of their own ! "

family of Monypenny, of Pitmillie, co. Fife ; but his ancestor, C.ipt. James 
Monypenny, R.N., settled in Kent about 1714, since which date this branch 
of the family has chiefly resided in Kent. His father was Thos. Monypenny,

83 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 Q uest ions af .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 pro- 
vided 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.

84 H. p. 1831. 

85 An amusing anecdote relative to this officer is given in the United 
Serrice 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 quarter- 
master, 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

" 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.

* In 1793 the Hon. Arthur Wellesley was appointed It.-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 after- 
noon of that eventful day, he inquired " How they were ? " The answer wa- 
that two-thirds of their number were down, and that the rest were so ex- 
hausted 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

front 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."

friend," exclaimed a private of Capt. Fisher's company. ' I will be as good 
a friend to you," said the subaltern, who immediately took the deceased's 
place in the square. This produced a grim laugh among the men, as they 
knew what the subaltern did not that the private had spoken ironically, 
for he was an old offender, and had constantly been punished by Capt. Fisher.

1 The death of Sir R. Macara at Quatre Bras was inexpressibly sad. iC 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 un- 
expectedly 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 psean of praise sung by the Goddess of Fame : 

" Here the Goddess ceased her lay ; 
Weak, her wings refused to fly ; 
Faiut, 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 ! "

Had served in the Pa., and received the gold medal and one clasp for Fuentes

He had m., llth 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 



THE WATERLOO ROLL CALL. 159 



drummer left the horse to assist his friend Donald. A French lancer at- 
tempted 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 bod}- 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. This gallant officer's claymore (an Andrea Ferrara) is in the posses-

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 honour- 
able and most amiable gentleman, General Hamerton is deeply lamented by all 
who came within the influence of his high and endearing qualities." He

2 Was twice wounded at Waterloo and had two horses shot under him. 
C.B. Previous to entering the army had served as a volunteer with the

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. Placed on h. p. 25th March, 1816.

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 Ifemitii^encea of a Subaltern : 
"At ten o'clock at night, 200 men moved forward to the assault, Dyas lead- 
ing 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 more, 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 detach- 
ment had fallen, Major MacGeechy one of the first ; and at this moment 
Dyaa and about five-and-twenty men were all that remained of the 200. 



THE WATERLOO ROLL CALL. 167 



Undismayed 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 brearh, 
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

column of the Imperial Guard was gaining the summit of the British 
position, and was forcing back one of the companies of the 95th, Colborne, 
seeing his left endangered, started the 52nd on its advance. 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,

party of the stormers of the 52nd at Badajoz. An extract from his journal 
is given in Moorsom's Record* of the 62nd Regiment, and graphically 
describes the crisis of Waterloo. If Col. Gawler claims the whole credit for 
the 52nd, he is at one with the rest of the officers of that gallant regt. The 
truth seems to be that there were two distinct columns of Napoleon's Guards 
launched against our troops at the close of Waterloo, and that whilst one was 
met and routed by our Guards in the centre, the other was attacked in flank 
by the 52nd and hurled back. Promoted from the 52nd to an unattached

quietly remarked, " Aweel, it is time for a respectable non-combatant to gang

did the stern 73rd hesitate to fill up a gap which the relentless iron had torn 
in their square. Their Colonel, at once pushing his horse lengthwise across 
the space, said, with a smile, 'Well, my lads, if you won't, I must.' Imme- 
diately 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. Was

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. Faint, exhausted, and wet to the skin, having no other 
clothes but a black silk dress and light shawl, she yet happily surmounted all 
these difficulties, reached Brussels on the morning of the 18th, and found her 
husband in very comfortable quarters, where she also was accommodated, the 
next day giving birth to a fine girl, who was afterwards christened ' Waterloo 
Deacon.' "

* The Cameron Highlanders were raised in Jan., 1794, by Lt.-G-en. Sir Alan 
Cameron, K.C.B. (then Maj. Cameron), who was their first colonel. The 
officers were mostly selected from the half-pay list, and had served, like their 
colonel, in the American war. The regt. served during the campaign in 
Holland, and the mortality was so great that, in 1799, this Scotch regt. had 
to be again raised. The call for officers and men was nobly responded to by 
the Clan Cameron : 

" And wild and high the Cameron's gathering rose, 
The war-note of Lochiel, which Albyn's hills have heard, 
And heard, too, hare hr Saxon foes." 



THE WATERLOO ROLL CALL. 191 



How the "Cameron men " fought at Waterloo is testified to by the number 
of their killed and wounded in that battle, and it is also recorded that, when 
all the field officers and captains of this regt. had been disabled, the regt. was 
led on to victory by Lieut. Cameron, a nephew of Sir Alan Cameron, the 
col.-in-chf. ; but which of the four lieutenants of this name cannot now be 
traced. On the evening of 18th June, 1815, 9 officers, 21 sergts., 7 drummers 
and 260 rank and file remained un wounded out of a total of 41 combatant 
officers, 40 sergts., 11 drummers, and 684 rank and file the effective strength

1 The heroic Fassifern, great-grandson of John Cameron, 18th of Lochiel, 
and one of the six children of Ewen Cameron of Inverscadale, on Loch Linnhe, 
by his first wife, Lucy Campbell, of Balmadine. In early life was articled to 
a Writer to the Signet at Edinburgh ; but when war broke out, in 1793, his 
military tastes inclined him to forsake the pen for a sword. Obtained a com- 
mission in the 26th Cameronians in 1793. His chief services were in the Pa. 
with above regt., and the honourable augmentation to his family arms, by 
the Prince Regent, 20th May, 1815, tells the true story of his exploits at 
" Almaraz" and the " Pass of Maya." K.T.S. He met his death at Quatre 
Bras whilst leading the 92nd against a large body of French troops. Never 
was a commanding officer more universally lamented. He was buried on the 
17th June during the height of the storm which raged that day. His grave 
was dug in a quiet lane by his devoted foster-brother, Ewen McMillan, a 
private in the 92nd, who had accompanied his master through all his cam- 
paigns. By desire of his family, Cameron's body was aftds. disinterred and 
removed to Scotland, where it was re-interred in Kilmallie churchyard, where 
a tall obelisk, with an inscription by Sir Walter Scott, marks his grave. 
His aged father, Ewen Cameron, was created a bart. in consideration of his 
gallant son's services. The title is now extinct. 

2 Succeeded to the command of the regt. when Cameron was wounded, but 
was himself soon disabled. C.B. Served in the Pa. and had the gold medal 
for Orthes. Commanded the regt. until 1819, when he quitted the service.

6 An interesting memoir of this gallant soldier appeared in the United 
Service Journal for 1837. He was a native of Dumfriesshire, where his father 
had a small property of his own. In 1805 he joined the 52nd L. I. as an 
ensign, and in the year following was appointed to a lieutenancy in the Rifle 
Brigade (as the old 95th is now styled). As a lieut. he had the good fortune 
to command one of the four companies of the Rifles which, under Sir S. 
Beck with, at the Pass of Barba del Puerco, on 19th March, 1810, so gallantly 
repulsed 600 chosen French troops who attempted to surprise them at mid- 
night. I extract the following from the above memoir : " On the 19th Jan., 
1812, he was one of the officers who volunteered and led the stormers at the 
taking of Ciudad Rodrigo, and was fortunate enough to come out unscathed, 
although one of the first to enter that deadly pass. At the storming of 
Badajoz on the 6th April, 1812, his name again stood on the list of volun- 
teers for the Forlorn Hope, but as it was claimed by a senior officer of the 
division, he was obliged to limit hia expectations to one of the posts of 
honour with the storming party. Sir Andrew Barnard, however, who com- 
manded the Light Division, knowing how peculiarly well qualified he was for 
desperate enterprise, assigned him a post in front of the Forlorn Hope, in the 
command of a party carrying ropes prepared with nooses to throw over the 
sword-blades which formed the chevaux-de-frise, in the hope of being able to 
displace.it by dragging it down the breach, but Johnstone and all his party 
were stricken down before they got within throwing distance. His appear- 
ance next morning is thus described by a brother officer, Capt. Kincaid, in 
Random Shots from a Rifleman, page 287 : 'The first tent that I entered 
was Johnstone' s. With his shattered arm bandaged, he was lying fast asleep, 
and coupling his appearance with the daring duty he had been called on to 
perform but a few hours before in front of the Forlorn Hope, I thought that 
I had never set my eyes upon a nobler picture of a soldier 1 His whole 
appearance, even in sleep, showed exactly as it had been in the execution of 
that duty ; his splendid figure was so disposed as if he was taking the first 
step in the breach his eyebrows were elevated his nostrils still distended, 
and altogether he looked as if he would clutch the castle in his remaining 
hand ! No one could have seen him at that moment without saying There 
lies a hero 1 ' ' Johnstone was wounded both at Quatre Bras and Waterloo. 
Promoted maj. 24th Dec., 1829. Quitted the service in 1831. Was Colonial 
Sec. at Cape of Good Hope, and d. at sea 6th April, 1836. 

' H. p. 21st May, 1818. 

8 Capt. 5th Aug., 1824. H. p. 28th May, 1829. Lt.-col. unatt. llth May, 
1851. Had the Par. medal with 8 clasps. See account of this officer in the 
Cji-nhill Magazine for Dec., 1897. 

9 Afterwards Maj. -Gen. John Cox, K.H. Was present at eleven general 
actions in the Pa. Had a compound fracture of his left arm at the storming 
of Ciudad Rodrigo. Defended a battery with his company at Waterloo. 
D. at Cheltenham, 7th Feb., 1863. There were two officers of this name in the

* In 1816 the Rl. Waggon Train took up a new position in the Ann- if List, 
viz., after the cavalry and newly-raised corps, the " Staff Corps of Cavalry," 
so called to distinguish it from the " Royal Staff Corps," which followed in 
the wake of the Rifle Brigade. The Waggon Train was reduced about twenty 
years after Waterloo, and after the Crimean War a corps called " The Military 
Train" sprung into existence, which, like its predecessor, was chiefly officered 
by old soldiers who had won their commissions while serving in the ranks. 
The Military Train was reduced in its turn, and " The Army Service Corps" 
may be said to be its present equivalent.

the Horse Artillery of Wellington's army, and served in this capacity until the 
conclusion of the war, winning for himself, and his branch of the service, a 
high reputation. K.C.B. and the gold cross, with one clasp. In the Waterloo 
campaign, Frazer again commanded the K.H.A., and " his high reputation 
as an artillery officer, combined with his firmness of character, prevailed on 
the Duke of Wellington, who was at first not favourable to the exchange, to 
permit him to substitute 9-pounders for 6-pounders in the troops of Horse 
Artillery serving with the army. To this exchange, which preceded the 
battle of Waterloo, may justly be ascribed muchot..the success of that memor-

able day." Another instance of Frazer's firmness of character is exhibited in 
the speedy way in which he made the Prussians, two days after Waterloo, 
surrender all the French guns which had been captured by the British, and 
which the rapacious Prussians had annexed, and "regularly parked with 
Prussian sentries.'' Frazer's interesting letters from the Pa. and the Nether- 
lands were published in 1859. These letters stamp the writer as a thorough 
soldier, a perfect gentleman, a delightful companion, and a modest and un- 
assuming man, possessing a heart that could feel for others' woes. He m., in

9 Afterwards Gen. Sir Wm. Bell, K.C.B. Col.-comdt. R.H.A. His father 
was Wm. Bell, a native of Tanfield, Yorkshire, a cornet in the Yeomanry, 
but a surgeon by profession, who had a good practice in Ripon, and was 
twice mayor of that town. His mother was Ann Atkinson, one of the daughters 
of Henry Atkinson, town clerk of Ripon. The way W. Bell became an 
artilleryman was as follows : " Old Col. Quist of the R.A., head of the riding 
establishment (who belonged to a Dutch family), came to Ripon to buy 
horses when Bell was a boy in his teens, and happening to meet the youth 
in Ripon society, he took a fancy to him." Col. Quist used his interest in 
obtaining for Bell a nomination to a cadetship at Woolwich Academy. In 
due course Bell obtained a commission in the R.A., and soon evinced that he

had a talent for " the music of war." He served in the West Indies from

general actions. Slightly wounded at Toulouse. His duties were very 
onerous both at Quatre Bras and Waterloo, where he was employed in 
conveying instructions and orders to officers commanding batteries in all 
parts of the field. He had the narrowest escape of being crushed to death, in 
after life, that ever befell anyone. " He fell from his horse in front of a 
battery of R.H.A. at Norwich (or Ipswich), and the battery going over him 
at a gallop, the drag-shoe of one of the guns knocked his ear off ! " Sir W. 
Bell resided during the latter part of his life at Ripon, and d. there, unm.,

arriving in the Pa. by detachments, was prevented from taking the field for 
some time. During the interval Whinyates served on the artillery staff, 
and was present at the battle of Busaco. His troop took the field before the 
battle of Albuera, where Whinyates commanded the half-troop which was 
attached to the cavalry on the right. It was here that some of the severest 
fighting took place. He was mentioned in public despatches for his conduct

Served in South America in 1807-1808. His troop came in for the hottest 
part of the battle on Waterloo Day, and suffered considerably in loss of men 
and horses. Sir George Wood, R.A., paid the battery a visit on that memor- 
able afternoon, and was surprised to find so many cannon balls whizzing 

round his ears. " D n it, Mercer," he exclaimed, '" you seem to be having a 

hot time of it here." Hot it was for all parties concerned, but the gallant 
way in which the gunners worked their guns kept the French cavalry from 
reaching the infantry squares behind Mercer's battery. In after years 
Gen. Mercer published his Journal of the Waterloo Campaign, which is a 
delightful book in every respect. Attained the rank of gen. and col.-comdt., 
and d. at Cowley Cottage, Exeter, 9th Nov., 1868.

" Lt. Breton, who had already lost two horses and had mounted a troop horse, 
was conversing with me during a leisure moment. As his horse stood at 
right angles to mine, the poor jaded animal dozingly rested his muzzle on my 
thigh ; whilst I, the better to hear amidst the infernal din, leant forward, 
resting my arm between his ears. In this attitude a cannon ball smashed the 
horse's head to atoms, and the headless trunk sank to the ground ! " Retd.

1 This officer's name has been immortalised by Napier in his Peninsular 
War. He came of a Scottish family, and was the eldest of three sons of a 
retired naval officer who resided in Edinburgh. He was the pride and glory 
of the branch of the army to which he belonged, and the beau-ideal of what 
a Horse Artilleryman should be. He served with great credit in Maj. Bull's 
troop of R.H.A., in the Pa., from 1811 to 1813. It was in the campaign of 
1811 that he performed the brilliant action which Napier's facile pen has so 
strikingly illustrated. This happened on 5th May, 1811, when, the British 
cavalry out-guards being far outnumbered near Fuentes d'Onor, were driven 
in upon their supports, and Capt. Ramsay found himself cut off. It is a 
matter of history how Ramsay, at the head of his battery, charged like a 



218 THE WATERLOO ROLL CALL. 

whirlwind through the French squadrons who intervened between his handful 
of men and the British troops, and rejoined the latter in safety when given up 
for lost. And at the battle of Vittoria, Ramsay again distinguished himself, 
but, by an unfortunate act of disobedience to Wellington's orders, he incurred 
the Iron Duke's iron displeasure. The story has been told as follows by a 
well-known author, and differs somewhat from the account given by Col. 
Duncan in his History of the lloyal Artillery : " I remember hearing a 
striking instance of what, perhaps, 'might be called severe justice, which he 
exercised on a young and distinguished officer of artillery in Spain ; and 
though one cannot help pitying the case of the gallant young fellow who was 
the sacrifice, yet the question of strict duty, to the very word, was set at rest 
for ever under the Duke's command, and it saved much after trouble, by 
making every officer satisfied, however fiery his courage or tender his sense of 
being suspected of the white feather, that implicit obedience was the course 
he must pursue. The case was this : The army was going into action. The 
Duke posted an officer, with his six guns, at a certain point, telling him to 
remain there until he had orders from him. Away went the rest of the army, 
and the officer was left doing nothing at all, which he didn't like ; for he was 
one of those high-blooded gentlemen who are never so happy as when they 
are making other people miserable, and he was longing for the head of a 
French column to be hammering away at. In half an hour or so he heard 
the distant sound of action, and it approached nearer and nearer, until he 
heard it close beside him ; and he wondered rather that he was not invited to 
take a share in it, when, pat to his thought, up came an aide-de-camp at full 
speed, telling him that Gen. Somebody ordered him to bring up his guns. 
The officer asked, ' Did not the order come from Lord Wellington V The aide- 
de-camp said ' No,' but from the gen., whoever he was. The officer explained 
that he was placed there by Lord Wellington, under command not to move 
unless by an order from himself. The aide-de-camp stated that the general's 
entire brigade was being driven in, and must be annihilated without the aid 
of the guns, and asked, ^ Would he let a whole brigade be slaughtered } ' in a 
tone which wounded the young soldier's pride, savouring, as he thought it 
did, of an imputation on his courage. He immediately ordered his guns to 
move, and joined battle with the general ; but while he was away an aide-de- 
camp from Lord Wellington rode up to where the guns had been posted, and, 
of course, no gun was to be had for the service which Lord Wellington 
required. Well, the French were repulsed, as it happened ; but the want of 
those six guns seriously marred a pre-concerted movement of the Duke's, and 
the officer in command of them was immediately put in arrest. Almost every 
general officer in the army endeavoured to get this sentence revoked, lamenting 
the fate of a gallant fellow being sent away for a slight error in judgment 
while the army was in full action ; but Lord Wellington was inexorable, 
saying he must make an example to secure himself in the perfect obedience of 
officers to their orders, and it had the effect." Mr. Lover's Handy Andy. 
To a man of Norman Ramsay's highly honourable and sensitive nature the 
circumstances of his arrest, coupled with the omission of his name from the 
Vittoria despatches, and the loss of a brevet he had well earned, may be said 
to have inflicted a wound which neither time nor subsequent honours could 
heal. Three weeks after his arrest he was restored to the command of his 
battery, to the great joy of the whole army in Spain, and after the battle of 
the Bidassoa he was promoted bt. maj. At Waterloo he commanded the 
H Troop R.H.A., and his forward gallantry in that battle attracted the fatal 
bullet which put an end to his noble life. He was buried on the field by his 
great friend Sir Augustus Frazer, during a momentary lull in the battle, but 
three weeks later was disinterred and his body sent to Edinburgh, as the only

lose his three gallant sons in the short space of eight months. Norman 
Ramsay m., 14th June, 1808, Mary Emilia, eldest dau. of Lt.-Gen. MacLeod,

After the battle Wellington rode to Brussels, and the first person who 
entered his room on the morning of the 19th was Dr. Hume. ' He had, as 
usual,' saya the doctor, ' taken off his clothes, but his face was covered with 
the dust and sweat of the previous day. He extended his hand to me, which 
I held in mine while I told him of Alexander Gordon's death. He was much 
affected. I felt his tears dropping fast upon my hand, and, looking towards 
him, saw them chasing one another in a stream over his dusty cheeks. He 
brushed them suddenly away with his left hand, and said to me, in a voice 
tremulous with emotion " Well, thank God, I don't know what it is to lose 
a battle, but certainly nothing can be more painful than to gain one with the 
loss of so many of one's friends."'" Fifty Years' Biographical Reminis- 
cences, by Lord William Lennox

FIELD TRAIN DEPARTMENT OF THE ORDNANCE.* 

* The Editor has no means of tracing the war services of the officers of this 
department, and can only give two Waterloo representatives of the above. 

ASSISTANT-COMMISSARIES. 

Date of Commission. 

1 Samuel J. Tibbs 1 June, 1814 

2 Richard Bant 1 June, 1815 

1 Served through the whole of the Par. war, and in 1848 reed, the medal 
with fourteen clasps. He also reed, the Waterloo medal. H, p. 6th Aug.,

The Regiment, 29th Aug., 1896. 

2 H. p. 27th March, 1816. D. in 1818. His Waterloo medal was for long 
in the Seaforth collection. 



COMMISSARIAT DEPARTMENT.* 

* The Commissariat officers who served at Waterloo were not granted the 
Waterloo medal, and none of them ever appeared in any Army List with the 
glorious " W " before their names, although, in after years, those who had 
served in the Pa. had the " P " before their names in the Army Lists, and they 
reed, the Par. medal in 1848. It is, therefore, impossible, to give any correct 
list of officers belonging to the above department, but the Editor gives the 
names of six officers who were undoubtedly at Waterloo.

service, but the word " Waterloo " is not to be found on the colours of the 
above four regts.

* The col.-in-chf. of this regt. was Charles, 4th Duke of Richmond, K.G., 
a gen. and gov. of Plymouth. He was present at Waterloo as a spectator, 
and although Wellington, his personal friend, implored him early in the day 
to retire to Brussels, the Duke did not beat a retreat until the battle waa half 
over. He was accompanied by his son, Lord William Lennox (a boy of 15), 
a cornet in the Horse Guards, and extra A.D.C. to Gen. Maitland. By an 
unfortunate accident, a few days before the battle, Lord William fractured 
his right arm, and had the sight of one of his eyes destroyed, and although 
he left his sick bed at Brussels to proffer his services to Gen. Maitland, the 
latter felt himself obliged to decline them, so the disappointed youth followed 
his father and another bivther to the field, en amateur. Gen. Mercer records 
in hia Waterloo Journal how surprised he w r as to see " a fine, tall, upright 
old gentleman, in plain clothes, followed by two young ones, come across our 
front at a gallop, from the Brussels road, and press forward to so hot a fight." 
This fine old veteran died from hydrophobia, while holding the appointment 
of Gov.-Gen. of Canada, 28th Aug., 1819.

This brave soldier was promoted sergt. in the 1st Dns., and aftds. Ensign

gallantry he displayed at Waterloo, in helping Capt. Clark of the same regt.

from the original in the United Service Museum, throws additional light on 
the above exploit : 

IPSWICH BAREACKS, 31-tf Jan., 1816. 

SIR, This day Col. Clifton sent for me about the taking the Eagle and 
colours. He asked me if I had any person that see me take the Eagle ; I 
told him that you see me, I believe, as the officer of the French was making 
away with it. I belonged to your troop at that time, and you gave me orders 
to charge him, which I did, and took it from him. When I stated it to him 
this day he wants to know the particulars about it, and me to rite to you for 
you to state to him how it was. I would thank you to rite to the Colonel, as 
you was the nearest officer to me that day. Sir, by so doing you will much 
oblige, Your most obedient humble servant,

H. p. 1849. Living in 1855. 

2 Captured the Eagle of the 45th French Regt. at Waterloo. This daring 
act won the admiration of the whole British Army. Ewart was rewarded 
with an ensigncy in the 5th Royal Veteran Battalion, 22nd Feb., 1816, and 
on the reduction of this regt. in 1821 he reed, a retiring pens, of 5s. Wd. per 
day. He was a native of Kilmarnock. D. at Davyhulme, near Manchester, 
17th March, 1846. The Edinburgh Advertiser for 21st June, 1816, has the 
following : 

" Extract of a letter from Sergt. Ewart, of the Scots Greys, dated Rouen, 
16th Aug., 1815 : 

" The enemy began forming their line of battle about nine in the morning 
of the 18th. They came down to the left, where they were received by our 
brave Highlanders. No men could ever behave better ; our brigade of 
cavalry covered them. Owing to a column of foreign troops giving way, our 
brigade was forced to advance to the support of our brave fellows, and which 
we certainly did in style ; we charged through two of their columns, each 
about 500. It was in the first charge I took the Eagle from the enemy ; he 
and I had a hard contest for it ; he thrust for my groin I parried it off, ami 
1 cut him through the head ; after which I was attacked by one of their 
Lancers, who threw his lance at me, but missed the mark by my throwing it 
off with my sword by my right side ; then I cut him from the chin upwards, 
which cut went through his teeth. Next I was attacked by a foot soldier, 
who, after firing at me, charged me with his bayonet ; but he very soon lost 
the combat, for I parried it, and cut him down through the head ; so that 
finished the contest for the Eagle. After which I presumed to follow my 
comrades, Eagle and all, but was stopped by the General saying to me, ' You 
brave fellow, take that to the rear ; you have done enough until you get quit 
of it,' which I was obliged to do, but with great reluctance. I retired to a 
l:eight, and stood there for upwards of an hour, which gave me a general 
view of the field, but I cannot express the sight I beheld ; the bodies of my 
brave comrades were lying so thick upon the field that it was scarcely possible 
to pass, and horses innumerable. 1 took the Eagle into Brussels, amidst the 
acclamation of thousands of the spectators that saw it." 

On 18th June, 1816, Ensign Ewart, and other Waterloo officers, were 
entertained at a public banquet in Edinburgh. " Nearly 400 noblemen and 
gentlemen sat down to an elegant dinner in the Assembly Rooms, the Rt. 
Hon. Wm. Arbuthnot, Lord Provost of the city, in the chair. After several 
toasts had been given and duly honoured, Sir Walter (then Mr.) Scott pro- 
posed a bumper to the health of Ensign Ewart, late of the Scots Greys, 
whose bravery was conspicuous where he took a French Eagle, and killed 
with his own hand three of Napoleon's guard. The toast was drank with 
great acclamation, and a general expectation prevailed that Ensign Ewart, 
who was present, would address the company. After a short pause, the 
Lord Provost rose, and, at the request of Mr. Ewart, stated how much he felt 
honoured by this mark of the company's approbation, but that he would 
much rather fight the battle over again and take another Eagle, than make 
a speech."

Sergfc. John Payne. 

Afterwards Capt. J. Payne, late quartermaster of the Grenadier Guards. 
Served in Sicily in 1806-7 and in Spain in 1808-9, and was present in several 
actions, including Corunna. He was also, at Walcheren. He served in the 
campaigns of 1812 to 1815, and was present at the actions in the Pyrenees, 
capture of San Seb istian, passage of the Bidassoa, Nive, Nivelle, investment 
of Bayonne, Quatre Bras, and Waterloo. He was commissioned as a quarter- 
master the 31st Aug., 1815, and retd. with the rank of capt. in Dec., 1855. 
Living 1876. The following description of the square of the Grenadier Guards 
during the afternoon of Waterloo day is by Capt. Gronow of that regt., and 
is certainly worthy of remembrance, exhibiting as it does the desperate 
heroism of the British resistance : 

" During the battle our spares presented a shocking sight. Inside we 
were nearly suffocated by the smoke and smell from burnt cartridges. It 
was impossible to move a yard without treading upon a wounded comrade, or 
upon the bodies of the dead ; and the loud groans of the wounded and dying 
were most appalling. 

"At four o'clock our square was a perfect hospital being full of dead, 
dying, and mutilated soldiers. The charges of cavalry were in appearance 
very formidable, but in reality a great relief, as the artillery could no longer 
fire on us ; the very earth shook under the enormous mass of men and horses. 
I shall never forget the strange noise our bullets made against the breast- 
plates of Kellerman's and Millhaud's cuirassiers, six or seven thousand in 
number, who attacked us with great fury. 1 can only compare it, with a 
somewhat homely simile, to the noise of a violent hailstorm beating against 
panes of glass. 

" The artillery did great execution ; but our musketry did not at first seem 
to kill many men, though it brought down a large number of horses, and 
created indescribable confusion. The horses of the first rank of cuirassiers, 
in spite of all the efforts of their riders, came to a standstill, shaking and 
covered with foam, at about twenty yards' distance from our squares, and 
generally resisted all attempts to force them to charge the line of serried 
steel. On one occasion two gallant French officers forced their way into a 

tap momentarily created by the discharge of artillery ; one was killed by 
tables, the other by Adair. Nothing could be more gallant than the 
behaviour of those veterans, many of whom had distinguished themselves on 
half the battle-fields of Europe. 

"In the midst of our terrible fire, their officers were seen as if on parade, 
keeping order in their ranks, and encouraging them. Unable to renew the 
charge, but unwilling to retreat, they brandished their swords with loud 
cries of 'Vive 1'Empereur 1 ' and allowed themselves to be mowed down by 
hundreds rather than yield. Our men, who shot them down, could not help 
admiring the gallant bearing and heroic resignation of their enemies."

Sergt. Samuel Goddard (3rd Batr.). 

In the Standard of 5th Jan., 1868, appeared the following obituary notice 
regarding this gallant soldier : 

"DEATH OF A MILITARY KNIGHT, AT WINDSOR CASTLE. On Sunday 
last Capt. Samuel Goddard, Military Knight of Windsor, died at his residence 
in the Lower Ward, Windsor Castle. This veteran and gallant officer was 
formerly of the 14th or Buckinghamshire Regt. of Foot, and had seen very 
lengthened service in the army, having served in the campaign of 1815, 
including the battle of Waterloo and the storming of Cambray ; in 1817, in 
the East Indies, he was present at the siege of Hattrass, and in the campaign 
of 1817-18, in the Deccan ; also at the siege and storming of Bhurtpore, in 
1825-26. With the medal so well earned, he was one of the officers receiving 
rewards for distinguished service ; moreover, as having originated the 
measure by which was accorded to meritorious quartermasters of long service 
the nominal rank of captain, several of whom, many years since, presented 
him with a handsome testimonial, expressive of their obligation, and of his 
efficient aid.' 



THE WATERLOO ROLL GALL. 2G3 

On Waterloo day, Sergt. Goddard was with an advanced party of 
skirmishers of the 14th, and about four o'clock the reflux wave of some. 
French cuirassiers passed through them. They were, of course, fired at by 
the 14th skirmishers, and several bit the dust. One poor wounded French- 
man was thrown from his horse, and a comrade nobly returned and offered 
the soldier the help of his stirrup. An active light infantry man of the 14th, 
Whitney by name, who had shot one cuirassier, having reloaded, was about 
to fire at the mounted Frenchman, who was then rescuing his comrade, when 
Goddard interfered and said, " No, Whitney, don't fire ; let him off, he is a 
noble fellow." (Communicated by a friend of Capt. Goddard.)

Field-Trumpeter J. Edwards. 

Sounded the bugle for the decisive charge of the 1st Life Guards at 
Waterloo. Was 32 years in the regt., and received a pension in June, 1841 
His medal and bugle are still preserved in the regiment.

2 Private Samuel Godley. 
8 Johnson. 

Dakin. 
Hodgson. 

1 The well-known pugilist and "fancy man" of this regt. His prowess 
when charging with the Life Guards at Waterloo was exemplified by the 
number of cuirassiers he slew. The little that is known of his early life, and 
the account of his death at Waterloo, are given in his biography by Lt.-Col. 
Knollys, who, out of very scanty material, has compiled a very interesting 
little book, Shaw was born at Woolaston, co. Notts, in 1789, and enlisted 
15th Oct., 1807. 

2 Known in the regt. as " Marquis of Granby," from the fact of his having 
a bald head. Had his horse shot under him in one of the charges at Waterloo, 
and was thrown. As he got up, minus his helmet, which had fallen off, a 
cuirassier rode at him and attempted to cut him down. Godley managed to 
kill his assailant, and mounting the Frenchman's horse, rode back to his regt. 
who welcomed him with shouts of " Well done, Marquis of Granby 1 " Dis- 
charged in 1824. D. in 1831. M. I. St. John's Wood Cemetery. 

8 Immediately after the first charge of his regt. at Waterloo, when the 
French cavalry were being pursued by ours, Johnson pursued three cuirassiers 
who, with a view of escaping, turned down a narrow lane. "There proved to 
be no thoroughfare at the end of the road, when Johnson, though alone, 
attacked the three, and, after a slight resistance, they surrendered themselves 
prisoners."

3 Private Thos. Stobo. 

1 A native of Renfrewshire. Aftds. sergt.-major of the Rl. Fifeshire 
Yeomanry. Was in every charge made by his regt. at Waterloo. D., at 
Kirkcaldy, in Dec., 1825. 

2 " Sergeant Weir of the Scots Greys was pay-sergt. of his troop, and as 
such might have been excused serving in action, and perhaps he should not 
have been forward; but, on such a day as Waterloo, he requested to be 
allowed to charge with the regt. In one of the charges he fell mortally 
wounded, and was left on the field. Corporal Scott of the same regt. (who 
lost a leg) asserts that when the field was searched for the wounded and 
slain, the body of Sergt. Weir was found with his name written on his fore- 
head by his own hand, dipped in his own blood. This, his comrade said, he 
was supposed to have done that his body might be found and known, and 
that it might not be imagined he had disappeared with the money of the 
troop. John Weir joined the Greys about 1798, and was a native of Mauch- 
line, Ayrshire." Copied from a MS. in possession of the regt., and communi- 
cated by Capt. G. Tancred.

1 " The Enniskilleners charged in line when Marshall's squadron dashed 
into the thickest of the enemy's phalanx, and were cut off from thb other 
troops of the regt, Marshall, while sabreing a cuirassier on his right, had his 
bridle-arm broken by a stroke from his enemy on his left, and had not 
proceeded much further when he was beset by another crowd of French 
cavalry and hurled from his horse by a lance which penetrated his side. 
While he was falling he received a heavy blow across the body, and another 
which broke his right thigh. He lay unconscious except when goaded into 
sensibility by the hoofs of the enemy's horses passing over his mangled body. 
The ground afterwards becoming somewhat clear he espied a horse without 
any rider, towards which he crawled, and was about to mount, when a French 
trooper galloping up cut him down in the midst of his hopes, inflicting several 
severe wounds on his body. This part of the field being again occupied by 
the French, a French artilleryman made Marshall's body a resting-place for 
his foot while he rammed his gun. For two days and three nights Marshall 
remained on the field with 19 lance and sabre wounds. On the regt, returning 
home he was discharged with 2*. per day. Resided at Belfast, where he was 
much respected. D. there, 28th Sept., 1825." Scots' Maga-'uie.

TTH HUSSARS. 

Sergt.-Maj. Edward Cotton. 

Had his horse killed under him at Waterloo. After being discharged from 
the regt. he took up his abode at Waterloo, and became a guide to the battle- 
field. Being a clever and well-educated man, he was able to compile a very 
interesting little book called A Voice from Waterloo, which held its own 
among the many accounts of the great battle. Besides this he formed a 
Waterloo Museum, which has always been a great attraction to visitors. In 
1875, when the Editor was at Waterloo, the Museum was kept by a niece of 
the late sergt.-maj., who d. 1st July, 1849, and was bd. in the orchard of 
Hougomont, by the side of Capt. Blackwood, who fell in the battle.

18TH HUSSARS. 

Sergt. John Taylor. 

Belonged to Capt. Ellis's troop. In the charge at Waterloo he made a cut 
at the head of one of the French cuirassiers, which had no other effect on the 
Frenchman than to induce him to cry out, in derision, " Ha I ha I " and to 
return a severe blow at the sergt, which was admirably parried, and then 
Taylor thrust his sabre into the mouth of the cuirassier, who immediately 
fell, and the conqueror cried, " Ha ! ha ! " 



COLDSTREAM GUARDS. 

Sergt. John Graham, Light Company, 2nd Batt. 

Distinguished himself in the defence of Hougomont, and by his great 
personal strength was of great assistance in helping to close the courtyard 
gate against the French. " At a later period of the day, when in the ranks 
along the garden wall facing the wood, and when the struggle was most 
severe in that quarter, he asked Lt.-Col. Macdonell's permission to fall out. 
The colonel, knowing the character of the man, expressed his surprise at the 
request made at such a moment. Graham explained that his brother lay 
wounded in one of the buildings then on fire ; that he wished to remove him 
to a place of safety, and that he would then lose no time in rejoining the 
ranks. The request was granted ; Graham succeeded in snatching his 
brother from the terrible fate which menaced him, laid him in a ditch in rear 
of the enclosure, and true to his word, was again at his post." Col. Mackinnon's 
History of the Coldstreams. Was selected in August, 1815, for the pension 
granted by the Rev. Norcross, Rector of Framlingham, "to the most

" There died at the village of Ardisier, Inverness-shire, a few days ago, an 
old veteran named Donald Davidson, one of the fast diminishing baud of 
Waterloo heroes. Donald, who, it may be mentioned, had six toes on each

enlisted in the 42nd Highlanders in June, 1813. He served with his regt. in 
the Pa., France, and the Netherlands, from February, 1814, to December, 
1816. He was wounded at the battle of Toulouse, and slightly on the head 
at Quatre Bras. Notwithstanding, he stuck to his regt., and was one ot the 
gallant few who repulsed the grand charge of cavalry in the cornfield at

92ND REGIMENT OF FOOT. 

Sergt. Alexander Cameron, Piper Major. 

Served in the Pa. during the whole of the late war, and for his zeal 
attracted the attention of several officers of high rank. Lt.-Gen. Sir Wm 
Erskine, in a letter to a friend, after the affair at Kio del Molinos, says : 
" The first intimation the enemy had of our approach was the piper of the 
92nd playing l Hey, Johnnie Coup, are ye waukin' yet 1 ' " To this favourite 
air from Cameron's pipe the streets of Brussels re-echoed on the night of the 
15th June, 1815, when the regt. assembled to march out to the field of 
Waterloo. It is recorded of this gallant Scot, on the 18th June, 1815, that 
" not content with piping at the head of his regt. he marched forward with a 
party of skirmishers, and placing himself on a height, in full view of the 
enemy, continued to animate by playing favourite national airs." D. at 
Belfast 18th Oct., 1817. Scots' Magazine. 



ROYAL HORSE ARTILLERY. 

Sergt. Daniel Dunuett. 

Belonged to Capt. Whinyates's Kocket Battery. The Waterloo historian 
(Siborne) gives the following : " A party of horse artillery proceeded under 
Capt. Dansey along the Charleroi road, to the front of the centre of the 
Anglo-allied line, and came into action with rockets near the farm of La 
Haye Sainte, leaving its two guns in the rear under Lt. Wright. Capt. 
Dansey very soon received a severe wound which obliged him to retire ; 
and the party, after firing a few rockets, fell back a little to where its horses 
were standing. It was then commanded by a sergeant (Daniel Dunnett), 
who, on perceiving the advance of the nearest French column towards the 
farm, dismounted his men as coolly and deliberately as if exercising on 
Woolwich Common, though without any support whatever, laid rockets on 
the ground, and discharged them in succession into the mass, every one of 
them appearing to take effect. The advance of the column was checked, 
and was not resumed until Dunnett, having expended all his rockets, retired 
with his party to rejoin the guns in rear."

STAFF. 

Col. C. H. Churchill was son of Maj.-Gen. Horace Churchill, and a descen- 
dant of the Earl of Ort'ord. In a letter to his father from " Le Gateau, 24th 
June, 1815," Churchill thus graphically describes Napoleon's final effort at 
Waterloo : 

" It was about four o'clock. The enemy had made great efforts, but our 
troops foiled them everywhere. We could not follow him ; he had retired 
rather than be beaten back. His position was very strong. About six o'clock 
we perceived formation columna, cavalry and infantry, formed in a great 
masa the enemy's artillery was brought to a more forward position and 
again he began to cannonade us. He opened a fire, the most tremendous 
ever known, I believe, in the annals of war 250 pieces, very close, throwing 
shells and round shot, grape, and every instrument of destruction. It is 
really not exaggeration to say we could not ride quick over the ground for 
the bodies of men and horses. Under cover of this cannonade advanced 
Bonaparte at the head of his Imperial Guards ; cavalry in a column on the 
left flank, and the Grenadiers of the Guard on their right flank. They 
advanced most steadily up to our line in one great mass. They halted and 
commenced firing. Our troops were literally mowed down. The fire was so 
great nothing could stand." The writer then goes on to describe how he had 
two horses killed under him, and a third disabled by a shot in the knee 
before the advancing French columns were u licked back." "The Prussians," 
continues Churchill, " now came upon the enemy's flank, and this obliged 
them to hurry their retreat."

R.H.A. : 

"Amiens, 7th August, 1815. 

" MY DEAR SIR WILLIAM, I should have written to you long ere this had 
not a wound, which deprived me of the use of my arm, prevented me. As to 
the fall of your son, and my esteemed friend, I can only say that few young 
men have left this life more sincerely regretted, and his exertions on the 
18th will ever endear his memory to all who witnessed his noble conduct on 
that day. Major Ramsay's last words to me were as follows : ' Did you ever 
witness such noble conduct as that of Brereton and Robe ? ' In short, it is a 
most painful task to relate the history of a man whose fall I sincerely lament, 
and I cannot without tears of sorrow think of your son, and my esteemed 
friend Major Ramsay. About five o'clock on the 18th your son received a 
mortal wound, and about the same time the following day he died at the 
village of Waterloo, after twice having taken leave of me in the most 
friendly and affectionate manner. I was too ill to ask him any questions ; 
indeed, I was so distressed when I saw him at his last moments, that I could 
only shake him by the hand, and in the course of a few minutes he expired. 
His remains were interred in a beautiful spot of ground in the village of 
Waterloo, where I intend to raise a monument to his memory. Yours 
most truly, 

"A. MCDONALD." 



REMINISCENCES OF WATERLOO [? 1895]. 

" Our Paris correspondent states that a correspondent of the Gaulols gives 
an interesting account of a conversation with one of the very few surviving 
spectators of the battle of Waterloo, a widow named Givron, the hundredth 
anniversary of whose birth is about to be celebrated in the little village of 
Viesville, Hainault. She relates that on the morning of the day of the great 
battle she ran away from her parents and made her way through the woods, 
being curious to see what was going on. She was close to Hougomont when 
the place was attacked by the French troops, and remained in hiding for 
hours, not daring to move. The cannonade having diminished she ventured 
towards the farm, but fled horror-stricken at the sight the ground, as she 
expresses it, being like red mud, so drenched was it with blood. She ran 
across the fields and reached the Bois de Flanchenoit, where she fell asleep, 
worn out by fatigue and excitement. At dusk she was awakened by the 
noise of horses' hoofs, and saw a troop of cavalry, headed by a man of short 
stature mounted on a curveting grey horse. He was riding slowly on as if in 
a dream, looking straight ahead and paying no heed to what went on about 
him. The girl learnt on the same evening from her relatives, when she finally 
reached home, that the rider was Napoleon. Madame Givron is remarkably 
active, and is particularly proud of her eyesight, which, she declares, is as 
good as it was seventy-five years ago. When her daughter Marceline, who, 
as she says, is only seventy-two, sits down to sew, her mother threads the 
needles for her. The old lady has had seven children, and her descendants 
number ninety-two." Morning Post.

A CENTENARIAN. 

Commissary-Gen. Downs writes to the Army and Navy Gazette in July, 
1891, as follows : 

" Samuel Gibson an inmate of the Metropolitan Asylum, Caterham is 
now in his 101st year. He enlisted about the year 1803 at Sanderage, county 
Armagh, as a boy in the 27th Regt., his father being at that time a private in 
the Monaghan militia. Young Gibson accompanied the Inniskillings to the 
Peninsula and also served with the regt. at Waterloo. He was discharged 
from the army soon after on a pension of one shilling per diem, which he 
afterwards commuted, receiving besides, he states, 74. He has been an 
iamate of Caterham Asylum for some years, and although unable to leave 
his bed he still enjoys a pipe of tobacco, which he indulges in frequently." 



INTERESTING SURVIVOR. 

" In the village of Rolvenden, in the Weald of Kent, there is living an 
old woman named Moon, who was present at the battles of Quatre Bras and 
Waterloo. Her father, a col.-sergt. of the 3rd batt. Rifle Brigade, served 
throughout the Peninsular war, and took part in the battles of Badajoz, 
Salamanca, and other conflicts. He died of wounds received at Waterloo 
some months after the battle and before he had received his pension. 
Mrs. Moon was born in the Peninsula, her mother doing work for the forces 
when operating there. Though Mrs. Moon is now infirm, her intellect is clear 
and her memory good." Miti-nlng JW-, 27th March, 181)9. 

NOTE BY THE EDITOR. Mrs. Barbara Moon d. at Rolvenden in Oct., 1903. 
It was stated in an obituary notice that she was four years old at the time of 
the battle of Waterloo and rode in a waggon over the field on the evening of 
18th June, 1815.

278 THE WATERLOO ROLL CALL. 



AN EYE-WITNESS OF WATERLOO. 

From a Correspondent. 

In a small cottage at the little village of Chapelle, within eye-shot of the 
meeting-place of Wellington and Bliicher after the most tremendous and 
fateful struggle in the world's history, there was living on June 18, 1815, a 
little girl, Therese Roland, thirteen years of age, who witnessed all that took 
place on that historic day. Eighty-nine years later she is still living there, 
a widow now, with her two sons of eighty and seventy-eight, herself a bowed 
and wrinkled old dame of 103 years. This aged peasant, with faculties 
still clear and memory unimpaired, is probably the only living witness of 
the death-blow dealt to all Napoleon's hopes on that midsummer day, which 
moulded the future history of an entire continent, and altered the balance of 
power of the entire world. 

A representative of the Patrie has recently visited the battlefield, and 
obtained from this interesting old character, now Mme. Dupuis, some remi- 
niscences of much that happened that day. She says : 

" As a little girl, stirred and fascinated by the long lines of horsemen, guns, 
and tired foot regiments passing our cottage, I stood at our door and served 
out water to the ' beaux soldats.' Afterwards I followed them to Waterloo. 
In the evening we heard the booming of great cannon, and from the win- 
dows I could see the clouds of smoke rising into the air like trees. I was in 
the mill, and the windows rattled. All night long we heard the tramp of 
silent men and the creaking, stumbling guns passing our doors. When I 
looked out next morning I saw wounded men lying by the roadside. In the 
distance I could hear a sound like a rough sea breaking against the rocks. 
There were clouds of smoke, and I saw men galloping, and masses of my brave 
soldiers moving hurriedly across the fields. Then the doctors came, and took 
out the bullets from the wounds of the soldiers. . . . The Prussians 
came by, and then the English, shouting their cries of victory. 

" Not far away soldiers were digging trenches in our fields to bury the dead. 
There were so many of them, so many of them " and the old peasant covered 
her face with her hands as though to shut out the terrible picture. " I saw 
one woman of Gotarville cut off the fingers of a Prussian officer, sorely hurt 
but still living, to secure the jewelled rings that he wore. 

" At Planchenoit, a little further away, they tell me that the brave French 
were so beaten down by bayonet charges that the river ran with blood. 
Near the hill above a general was killed. 

" No ; I did not see Napoleon, and I still regret it. Poor Napoleon !. . . 
We did not like the English or the Prussians. . . . The next day we 
knew that Napoleon's power was broken, by the lines we heard the people 
singing," and raising herself in her chair, the tottering old dame sang in a 
feeble voice : 

Les cannoniera bombardaient a feu et a flamme, 
Les cuirassiers, les gardes d'honneur, sont renverses, 
Bonaparte, en fin voila ta fiu. II faut te rendre 
Te voila battu, convaincu, tu n'en peux plus I
