From the Napoleon-Series ….

That whole discussion on the Napoleon series forum is fascinating. We've all known that Ewart's story was not quite "reproducible" and assumed that Capt and corporal together took the Royals' eagle. The 6th Dragoons claim is rarely discussed in such detail. What is really new to me here is the other claims, to even a temporary seizure of an eagle, plus the fannions captured.

There is still enough material around for many a book I am beginning to realise…..but it needs expert research of primary sources (and a good command of European languages).

Thanks for highlighting this. Brilliant!
