This includes a short account of the 2/69th in the campaign of 1815. It includes an account of private Dooley being wounded by a lancer whilst he was in square at Waterloo which prompted him to quit the formation and attack his tormentor, succeeding in parrying a lance charge and bayonetting the horse man (to the surprise and joy of his comrades).

Does anyone know the source of this account and whether Dooley existed?
