The Association of Friends of the Waterloo Committee

Postby Mark » June 26th, 2011, 3:20 pm

The Association is a non-profit making charity which was established in 1973 to preserve and protect the battlefield at a time when the Belgian Authorities were planning to put a motorway through the site. The secondary aim of the Association is to promote a greater understanding of the Battle of Waterloo and Britain's role in the Napoleonic era.

The first volume of the 'register of memorials' (see links) is nearing completion and will be published sometime in the new year (the dates mentioned have been amended since). Janet and David Bromley, the authors of this work, would still be interested to hear from anybody who has a grave, memorial etc that forum members may be aware of, they will in all probability already have it, if it is a well known person they certainly will (they have well over 3000 now!) but you never know.

This work will be a monumental aid to medal collectors, family historians etc and i personally can't wait :)

I got my copy this morning : GREAT job ! TREMENDOUS !

And thanks for mentioning me ! ;)

Just a small problem, when I use the CD, I get the names, but no picture, just the button "enlarge image" which gives nothing.

All the pictures are there, numbered 0001 - 1747 !

And I've heard of someone who's having the same problem. Any clue ?
