You can see from that viddie- shrapnel.

The Prussians.

The Scots Greys.

General Picton.

Oh, and the British Army.

Thank you for the notice, it was not in mind today.

I read somewhere that it came down to a "fistful of nails".  Napoleon's cavalry had captured the British guns, but couldn't spike them to take them out of action.  They eventually moved off and the British artillerymen reoccupied the position.

I build 1/48 scale WW2 fighters.

Have fun.
