Today is the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, fought on June 18, 1815. I suspect most, if not all, hobbyists will know a good deal about it already. If you are a UK citizen then you may already know that Royal Mail have released two sets of commemorative stamps, which feature some lovely artwork. For the benefit of non-stamp nerds and overseas visitors to the blog, I thought it was worth showing that artwork here. I can understand why so many people fall under the spell of collecting and gaming this era.
