It's been a while, but I'm back, and it's a big one. The 3rd British infantry division was the strongest division in battalions 13 in all plus 2 coys of field jaegers.
Let's have a closer look.
The 3rd British Infantry Division
Commanded by Lt. Gen Charles Count Alten
strength at Waterloo 8,091
casualties at Waterloo 3,725
Deployed on the right/centre on the ridge.
In the next part of the Mini Muster, I will post a battle report on a larger fictional battle between the advancing French under Nay and the withdrawing allies under William Prince of Orange. Not quite on the scale of Quatre Bras, which went almost as historically as it could, with the French having the better of the early stages but the reinforcements just kept coming which slowly ground the French assaults to a halt, but the French under Nay almost pulled off a bit of a moment when their cavalry smashed through the allies left and the allies almost bolted. A real brown trousers moment.
Till next time.
