Scotland for Ever'; the charge of the Scots Greys at Waterloo, 18 June 1815

Scotland for Ever'; the charge of the Scots Greys at Waterloo, 18 June 1815. The attack by the Royal Scots Greys cavalry regiment on the French 45th infantry was immortalised in this famous painting of 1881 by Lady Elizabeth Butler (1846-1933). The wife of a general as well as a popular Victorian painter, she persuaded the commander of the regiment to reconstruct the charge so she could make the painting. Some military historians doubt that the action actually took the form of the spectacular headlong charge depicted in the picture. What is known however is that the Scots Greys overpursued the French infantry, became split into disorganised small groups, and suffered heavy casualties at the hands of French cavalry formations before they were able to regain the British lines

Mounted Arab courier, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Mounted Arab courier, 1845. British naval officer Thomas Fletcher Waghorn pioneered a new route from Great Britain to India overland through Egypt before the construction of the Suez Canal in the 1860s. Waghorn claimed his route reduced the journey from over 11,000 miles (18,000 km) to 6,000 miles (9,700 km), taking between 35 and 45 days. At the time, steamships carrying mail took about three months to sail via the Cape of Good Hope. Waghorn's route consisted of a combination of steamship and horses. From Suez, ...the Express passed on to Cairo, carried by Couriers on horseback, 84 miles across the Desert'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII
