Somehow -- I've even forgotten what I was originally looking for -- I arrived at this article in the Daily Mail.  If you click on it, you'll see a dozen or so photographs of a highly detailed and thoroughly fascinating scale model or diorama of the battle of Waterloo.  I loitered there for far too long;  loads of very detailed pictures.  But even so I need to go back and try to find some of the pipers.

And the 2d battalion the 44th regiment of foot was there.  An English regiment, so no pipers.  But since my great, great, great, grandfather was in that battalion at that time, I presume he was there, too. Haven't noticed any family resemblances amongst the model figures, though.   Yet.
