6th (Inniskilling) Regiment of Dragoons, 1815

Using my new light box, I have taken some new photographs of my Inniskillings. The Regiment formed part of Major General Sir William Ponsonby's 2nd (Union ) Cavalry Brigade at Waterloo under the command of Lt. Colonel Joseph Muter.

The unit is based per General de Brigade rules and was painted for me by Carl Robson using Perry 28mm figures.

I took the helpful advise of one of my readers, "Heinz-Ulrich von Boffke" and used a blue graduated backdrop this time.
