[The Capture of French trophies during the Battle of Waterloo]
[The Capture of French trophies during the Battle of Waterloo] Among the Trophies of the memorable 18th of June the Standard of the 45th and 105th Reg.ts form no inconsiderable feature [...]
J Atkinson del.t / R Ackermann's Lithography [n.d., c.1815]
Lithograph, printed area 210 x 300mm (8¼ x 12").
Print made to commemorate the famous capture of two French standards (those of the 45eme and 105eme de la ligne) during the Seventh Coalition's victory in the Battle of Waterloo. It is not known who captured the eagle of the 45eme (the text here only noting it was taken by Scotch Greys), but Corporal F. Stiles was credited with the capture of the 105eme eagle, as recorded here. Stiles was the only officer rewarded for the capture by being made a sergeant and later given and ensigncy, although competing accounts credit another officer, Captain Alexander Clark, with the capture. The eagle standard of the 105eme is now in the collection of the National Army Museum, London. By John Augustus Atkinson (1775 - 1830), painter, draughtsman and printmaker. He spent 1784-1801 in Russia and subsequently made many prints during the Napoleonic Wars. Following the Battle of Waterloo Atkinson actually visited the battlefield as research for a large painting of the battle (exhibited 1817). The duke of Wellington was one of Atkinson's patrons.
