VXFB008 54mm Flags. 69th Regiment of Foot (South Lincoln). - Victrix Limited. The 69th actually lost their King's Colour two days previously at Quatre Bras to a French cuirassier, and had their seamsters make another quickly, but the word was out, partly because the French flaunted it; and the regiment felt shame. The flag, however, was found in France and returned to the regiment. It rests securely in a museum in England today.
The Battle of Waterloo which ended the twenty-three years' war of the first French Revolution. It was a period of violence, of tumult, of unrestingly destructive energy-a period throughout which the wealth of nations was scattered like sand, and the blood of nations lavished like water. The Battle of Waterloo quelled Napoleon Bonaparte whose genius and ambition had so long disturbed and desolated the world, deserves to be regarded by us as one of the greatest victories.
