He was the first to repulse the French attack at Brussels (Quatre Bras) in 1815 and held out so long that the Allies led by the English Commander-in-Chief Wellington arrived in time to defeat the French Emperor Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. The memorial was established in 1820. Olympus E-M10II + Olympus 12-40mm f2.8
