Boney Was a Warrior

 

Napoleon Bonaparte with his Currassier bodyguard on the field of Waterloo whilst the French infantry skirmish with Wellington's troops during the early phase of the Battle of Waterloo.

 

Every year in June the Battle of Waterloo is refought in Belgium with hundreds of re-enactors taking part.

 

Many years ago I came across a folk music LP that had on it a song about Napoleon that has stuck in my mind ever since. The version below is by folk singer Paul Clayton.

Les Auld: They do indeed Chris, but the big one will be in 2015. Thanks for the comment.
Fantastic piece Les - I'm assuming it's a montage of 2 pics but it works to great effect.
Les Auld: Indeed it is two images Fred but I thought they were made for each other, thanks for the comment.
Brilliant Les, excellent work.
