Re: British prisoners taken after Talavera

On an aside: Adjutant Scheltens of the Dutch-Belgian 7th Line infantry battalion captured 2 French officers of the 105eme at Waterloo during the counterattack on D'Erlon's divisions. They gave him the Masonic sign, and he arranged for their safe transport to Brussels. the moral of this story: in wartime, become a Mason ;-)

Just my $0.02,
