Waterloo

On this day in 1815, Napoleon led his 72,000-strong army into battle with 100,000 mostly British and Prussian soldiers on the fields near a little Belgian village about 9 miles south of Brussels.

It was there as the saying goes that “Napoleon met his Waterloo”.

Napoleon’s defeat ended 23 years of recurrent warfare between France and the other powers of Europe.

So what better excuse than to celebrate it than with a song …I wonder how may people have this as one of their guilty pleasures ? (and before you ask although this is the second clip of them this week it is pure co-incidence….or is it !!!)

And if the outfits and hairstyles themselves didn’t date the piece then check out the latest ‘compact’ camera the lady is using about a minute into the clip !
