The oldest surviving combatant from Waterloo *PIC*

"Louis-Victor Baillot, the oldest surviving combatant from Waterloo, was born in Percey in Burgundy on April 7, 1793, a little over two months after Louis XVI was taken to the guillotine. He died, aged 104, on February 3, 1898, 15 days before the sports car pioneer Enzo Ferrari was born."
