    I have a couple of items which might be of interest in this anniversary year. One is an 'admit the bearer' to St Paul's Cathedral and the other is a cigar part smoked by the Duke of Wellington which was picked up by my Great Great Uncle who was with the Metropolitan Police. I recognise that there is little providence (other than possible DNA?) but I would not imagine anyone putting any ordinary part smoked cigar in a case for safe keeping. These can be viewed using the following link: http://i1113.photobucket.com/albums/k505/haptalon/DofW_zps23fd869f.jpg

    Lt Thomas Trotter of the Greys was my great, great,great Uncle and was killed in the Greys charge. He had previously served in the Peninsular with the 14th Light Dragoons and arrived in Belgium with no sword but was given one from an injured trooper. He was killed by a single musket bullet to the chest. His telescope, on loan from me, is in the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards museum in Edinburgh Castle
