The Tenth Royal Hussars at Waterloo

The 10th Hussars' part in the defeat of Napoleon


The Battle- Waterloo

The following account of the part played in the Battle at Waterloo by the Tenth Royal Hussars has been taken, unedited, from the Memoirs of the Tenth Royal Hussars written by Colonel R. S. Liddell, and published in 1891 by Longmans, Green and Co, in London.


Help with other material, information and pictures has been generously provided by The Horsepower Museum, Winchester, and their aid in providing photographs of paintings of the battle which are housed at the Museum is very gratefully acknowledged. I am also indebted to members of the Napoleonic Wars Forum for their help and advice with additional material.
