  1. David, it's hard to say what regiment was there at what moment of the day. Sure is that whole day the defenders had reinforcements. Even some soldiers from teh 95th Rifles.
    And I'm not sure about that artillery neither. As far as I know they had no shooting range for them.
    Where did you get this information?


  2. Peter, it's a crossed info between Wikipedia, Hougoumont - Waterloo 1815 Les Carnets de la Campagne N°1 and Napoleon, His Armies and Enemies site.

    The artillery wasn't there, but being on the right of the Allied army, exchanged fire with the french artillery on that side. Or it's what I am picturing in my mind...
