Waterloo
BATTLE OF BRITAIN PIPES

THE BATTLE OF WATERLOO
18 June 1815

One of the most famous battles in world history and the most important land battle in British history the Battle of Waterloo was fought on Sunday, 18 June 1815 near Waterloo what is today part of Belgium.

The French Armée du Nord under Napoléon Bonaparte was defeated by the Anglo-allied army under the command of the Duke of Wellington and a Prussian army under the commander Field Marshal von Blücher.

The French army of around 69,000 consisted of 48,000 infantry, 14,000 cavalry, and 7,000 artillery and was equipped with 250 guns. The French troops were experienced soldiers, especially the cavalry had an excellent reputation, which included 14 regiments of heavy cavalry and 7 highly versatile lancers.

Wellington’s troops consisted of 50,000 infantry, 11,000 cavalry, and 6,000 artillery with 150 guns, totalling 67,000 soldiers. Of these, 25,000 were British (including a disproportionate number of Irishmen) and 6,000 were from the King's German Legion (KGL). All of the British Army troops were regular soldiers but were overall less experienced than their French counterparts. In addition, there were 17,000 Dutch and Belgian troops, 11,000 from Hanover, 6,000 from Brunswick, and 3,000 from Nassau, many of them inexperienced. Furthermore, Wellington was also short of heavy cavalry with only seven British and three Dutch regiments.

The Prussian army was in the midst of a major reorganisation integrating reserves and Landwehr (militia) regiments with mostly untrained and unequipped soldiers. The Prussian cavalry was in a similar state. However, the Prussian Army had an excellent leadership and very professional General Staff organisation. These officers came from four special schools developed for this purpose and thus worked to a common standard of training.

It was a closely fought battle. The Duke of Wellington later said “the nearest-run thing you ever saw in your life”. Two hundred thousand soldiers and three of the most splendid commanders of their age fought possibly the most intensive, bitter battle in the entire military history.

At the end of the battle - after nine hours of most intense fighting and within a six square kilometre area - 54,000 men lay dead or mortally wounded or were injured.

The defeat at Waterloo ended Napoleon's rule as French emperor and meant the end of his Hundred Days return from exile. He abdicated 4 days later, and on the 7 July coalition forces entered Paris.

THE LIMITED EDITION
WHITE SPOT WATERLOO PIPES

These three Battle of Waterloo pipes have been specifically created and manufactured to remember the 200th anniversary of the battle and to celebrate the victory at the Battle of Waterloo on 18 June 1815.

After launching the Battle of Trafalgar pipes in 2007 and the Battle of Britain pipes in 2010, this third limited edition collection concludes the trilogy of the most important battles in British history.

The Battle of Waterloo pipe is an elegant Quaint shape in size group 4, a shape specially made for this edition. The pipes have semi-bevel rims and are fitted with precious metal bands engraved with the inscription The Battle of Waterloo and 1815 - 2015.

The pipe tamper is shaped as a cannon of the period, with its main body cast from solid Sterling Silver, while the tamper for the Amber Root version has additionally been decorated with four elegant rings made from 18ct Gold.

What gives those pipe tampers indeed historic importance is that the Cascabel (knob) and Breech of the cannon tampers are made from pig iron that was recast from an original French 12-pounder cannon ball from the Waterloo battle field.

The deformed cannon ball was found buried into the Waterloo battle field ground in 1979 by a French metal detectorist and was subsequently purchased by the director of Alfred Dunhill’s White Spot division in 2012 in anticipation of this project.

The red circle on the right indicates the approximate position where the cannonball was found.

The highly collectable Battle of Waterloo editions are housed in a prestigious midnight blue leather box of generous dimensions. The lid bears the relief busts of the three generals – Feldmarschall von Blücher, the Duke of Wellington and Napoléon Bonaparte.

The pipe, the tamper and the certificate are presented in a removable tray.

Furthermore, each set is accompanied by the hardcover book ‘Waterloo – The decisive Victory” edited by Colonel Nick Lipscombe, which has been integrated with its slip case under the removable tray in the base of the presentation box.

Each set is accompanied by its numbered and hand-signed limited edition certificate.

This edition series is strictly limited to only 10 pipes in Amber Root, 140 pipes in Bruyere and 150 pipes in Shell Briar finish.

The respective number “1” of each edition are not for sale and stay in the White Spot archive.
