    “Hand me Downs” I don't know whether I have ancestors who fought at Waterloo (a paternal great great grandfather joined the army later, in 1820) but I have a story. My maternal grandfather told me, when I was a child, that he had been taken to visit a very old lady when he was a child, and told to shake her hand. She then told him that he had 'shaken the hand of a lady who shook the hand of a man who fought at the battle of Waterloo'. I then solemnly shook my grandfather's hand, to be part of the story.

    Our town will celebrate it's 200th anniversary this year. It is called Waterlooville. Legend has it soldiers from the Battle of Waterloo drank and rested at the inn which was renamed The Heroes of Waterloo in their honour. Descendants from the battle are said to have settled here. Steve Mayne
