Infantry Company at Waterloo

A great posting of an article about a Highlander (73rd) company at Waterloo is available at the Research section of the Royal Welch Fusiliers website.

The company discussed is a Grenadier company, and much of the detail is taken from the memoirs of a soldier in the company, a Corporal Thomas Morris. Although later in life, he wrote a book about himself and two relatives called "The Three Sergeants", he himself never rose above the rank of Corporal.

The Article is quite informative, and if you are a fan of Infantry Warfare or Waterloo, or Highlanders, or Grenadiers, or Napoleonics then it is worth a read.
