[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.

Johannes Allart: Amsterdam. Mathieu Lgnace Van Bree. The moment the French. ' The Greys, who had been in a theoretical reserve position, moved straight to their front, which took them through the ranks of the Gordons. The head of the French Division was now only 20 yards away and the Greys simply walked into the 1st/45th Infantry of the Line. There was no gallop and no 'charge.' It is clear from the French report that they did not expect to see British cavalry materializing through the ranks of the British infantry. When the cavalry hit them, the 45th were in the act of forming line, and their 1st battalion was at once thrown into violent confusion, already shaken by the fire of the 92nd. The regimental eagles were carried by the 1st battalion of all French infantry regiments, and in a few minutes the Greys were in the midst of the battalion, at which stage Sergeant Charles Ewart of Captain Vernor's troop captured the eagle of the 45th. He was ordered to take it to the rear, which he reluctantly did, but sat on his horse for sometime watching the engagement before finally setting off for Brussels with his trophy. The rest of the French columns believed what they saw could only be an advance guard, and were now under the mistaken impression that they were being attacked by large numbers of cavalry. The Royal Dragoons and Inniskilling charged Donzelot's Division and the Eagle of the 105th Regiment was taken by the Royal Dragoons. These were the only two Eagles captured during the entire Waterloo campaign.'
