Author's Notes

"This is the third in a series regarding the conflict during the battle of Waterloo. Please read the first two 'The Square' and 'Screaming Horses'"

Wake to fire and thunder.

As the earth trembles.

Coffee and hardtack.

Light blowing rain.

Bugles calling.

Rattle of drums.

 

Orders barked.

Mighty mounts.

Hoofs pawing.

Saddles await.

Cheering troopers.

Look to the sergeants.

 

Shakos pulled down.

Power kept dry.

Sabres flashing.

Horses at the walk.

Greys wheel right.

Churning mud.

 

Sound of battle.

Time to be joined.

Thick French lines.

Command givens.

We dine on.

French quail today.

 

Frothing mounts.

Bloodied steel.

Sergeant Ewart exhausted.

Retiring with the Golden Eagle.

Roar goes up.

For King and Crown.
