Perry Miniatures 1st Nassau Voltiguers and Grenadiers

1st Nassau Grenadier Company

Back to 1815 - Waterloo and the defence of La Haie Sainte - two companies of the 1st Nassauers, the Grenadier and Light companies. These were sent to reinforce the 2nd Light Battalion of the King's German Legion, the last troops to reach the farm house before it fell. They made good use of their camp kettles to put out the fires that the French had started. This was just before La Haie Sainte finally fell.
Below is the Voltiguer Company:
