His grace the Duke of Wellington consults with Lieutenant-General Sir Thomas Picton as the crisis in the centre develops. The Netherlands light cavalry, Lt-General Baron J.A. de Collaert commanding, are heavily engaged with the Guard Lancers and also the Carabiniers from the 12th Cavalry Division, Baron Nicholas Francois Roussel d'Hurbal commanding.
The 3rd Netherlands Division,Lt-General, Baron David-Hendrik Chasse, together with 10th British Brigade, Maj-General Sir John Lambert move to reinforce the Allied centre.
The Prussian 1st Cavalry Brigade, Count Von Schwerin commanding, has begun to deploy from the Bois de Paris.
His Majesty is unconcerned, Plancenoit is defended, the Guard are committed, 'on to Brussels', La Victoire est a Nous!
Many thanks to Mr. Dodson.
