Happy Waterloo Day!

(Scotland Forever! Lady Butler's famous painting of the charge of Royal Scot Greys at Waterloo)
 
It's nearly two hundred years today that the Battle of Waterloo was fought on the flat plains of Waterloo but that won't happen until four years later (18th June 2015).

Coincidentally it's also Philip Jackson's birthday today (best known Chief Inspector James Japp from Poirot) so happy birthday, Mr Jackson!

Though it's just past the 18th now over here, just a post to commemorate the 195th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo which started in the late morning of Sunday, 18th June 1815.

Today's 18th June...(yep, this is going to be yet another random historical event-related post and yes, it's nearly the end of the 18th now)

It's the 194th anniversary of the famous Battle of Waterloo fought on the plains of Waterloo in Belgium between the Duke of Wellington, Prussia's Prince Blucher and Napoleon on 18th June 1815. Basically, this WAS the battle which decided the fate of Europe for the coming 100 years until 1914 and the advent of World War I.

*clears throat* Well, anyways...enough about that. Let's carry on, shall we? XD
