I have been so caught up with the anniversary of D-Day and it being 100 years since the outbreak of The Great War in 1914, that it came as a slight shock yesterday to realise that 2015 will mark 300 years since the Battle of Waterloo.

Might your ancestors have been in the thick of the fighting on 18th June, 1815? Click here to see why.


‘My heart is broken by the terrible loss I have sustained in my old friends and companions and my poor soldiers. Believe me, nothing except a battle lost can be half so melancholy as a battle won.’ Letter from the field of Waterloo (June 1815), as quoted in Decisive Battles of the World (1899) by Edward Shepherd Creasy.
