Waterloo find

When we moved into our new home in 2012 I found a book in the attic on the battle of Waterloo I didn’t want to throw it out so it was ‘stored’ in a safe place.

Last year when we started the Waterloo200 project I wanted to find it and learn about the battle but it wasn’t to be found…Until last week when it turned up in one of the kids toy cupboards.

This is the first page i saw when I opened the book…

Very spooky as this time last year I was at the Musee Armee in Paris photographing the same object!
