The Village of Waterloo, with travellers purchasing the relics that were found in the field of battle, 1815 (c).

Oil on panel by George Jones (1786-1869), 1821 (c).

A Prussian soldier offers items to a mounted hussar, while a woman sells military relics from the battlefield of Waterloo to a highlander and some tourists.

In the centre of the painting, a coach with basketwork panniers prepares to leave, possibly returning visitors to Brussels, just as a cartload of red-coated bodies, those of British soldiers, arrive in the village. Mounted lancers wait outside the public house, while one cavalryman on crutches hobbles towards the group.
