Thanks Dominique - I took a reading on Google Earth and mistyped the first 5. Now corrected.

I know it's off topic here, but I have done the same for all the 1815 landmarks and memorials on my website.

I've given the exact coordinates (Google Earth), but also the Garmin and TomTom files to have the coordinate ready in your GPS.

http://napoleon-monuments.eu/Napoleon1er/1815_EN.htm

I intend to do it for all 5500+ napoleonic memorials for the next "Guide Napoléon".

That's good to know, Dominique. When will the next Guide be published?
