About this Artefact by: Waterloo 200 Coordinator

Date added: 16 Mar 2015

This collection of miniature flat tin soldiers belonged to Winston Churchill. They are modelled on the French and British forces on opposite sides of the Battle of Waterloo. Waterloo captured the imagination of children for a hundred years, and small boys around the world learned the names Wellington and Napoleon.
