    I thought Waterloo was in 1815? Regardless, here's another 'captured' French breastplate from the battle worn by a Carabinier named Antoine Favreau, it's not really in as good condition.....

    I think you can forget that idea of them wearing captured French breastplates from Waterloo. Such items would be far too valuable to be used for a start! If I remember correctly, a while back the military were trying out plastic back and breastplates for reasons of cost. No longer having to face cannon balls or grapeshot 'Elf n Safety' probably wouldn't have any objections!

    Certainly couldn't be described as just a flesh wound that's for sure.

    It was probably an 'inoperable solid object trauma wound.'

    Yes Ned it was 1815, but I can not remember what the exact date of the capture of these plates was.
    I remember not long ago The last Queens birthday THE BBC was covering it and the narrator was giving information about the Guards wearing these plates and they were from European campaign.
