    Great photos. Thanks to you both.

    Shame about the graffiti on the Lion. I wonder how often they have to clean that thing?

    Nice pictures. When I visited they did not yet have digital camera's. One day I'll have to sit down and take the time to scan them all.

To me it is interesting to find a battlefield that has not changed that much and then stand there trying to imagine the thoughts that went through the soldiers. Brings it out of the books and into real life - at least for me. Thanks again for the wonderful pictures!
    The battlefield of Waterloo is protected, the Belgian government pay a quantity to the owners of the two farms, Hougoumont and La Haie Sainte, for keep all as the battle day. The north gate of Hougoumont has not been rebuilt.

    Did the approaching cavalry, in the last photo, attack you?
    No, they are from the Xeme Chasseurs de la Garde Imperiale. They are friends
