Re: Database of British Combatants at Waterloo

Hi Mark

Yes I am thinking of selling it in some way. Not sure best way of going about it though!

Itīs just kept on a simple Excell workbook. There are seven fields. Division, Regiment, Rank, First name, Surname, casualty field (with entries either "wounded", "killed" or "died of wounds". The final field contains all the info on that person, at present often just one word (Discharged, Pensioned etc) but there are several thousand with much more info. I did a word count on this final info field the other day and it came to 110,000 words of bio details for combatants.

Iīm still copying up lots of stuff, thereī no light at the end of the tunnel yet!

A busy Christmas at Kew is coming up.

Regards

Mike
