Although surely it should be the Retreat and Rout of the Guards? :)

Duly noted :)

I believe the count was one retreating never to return, the other destroyed by the combined flank charge of the Royals and Enniskillings(the fact they were then destroyed by the lancers is neither here nor there ;) )

When you add those to the two Middle Guard battalions I routed and forced to retire that's a lot of French guard going backwards and not a mention in Barry's report. :lol:

Why would he? In the words of Tom Jones (well known Napoleonic Karioke singer and part time trapeze artist) .. "Snot unusual"

Aren't the French always going backwards :lol:
