The famous 1815 exploits of ‘G Troop’ RHA and their junior captain Alexander Cavalié Mercer are rightly celebrated. Mercer’s “Journal of the Waterloo Campaign” is often regarded as the finest campaign account ever written.
We hope you like the fresh look and feel of this site, but we have even more exciting news to share:
HOT OFF THE PRESS
It is an enormous pleasure to announce the launch of Campaigns & Culture, a new and high quality battlefield & cultural tour business with my friend and doyen of Napoleonic authors, Gareth Glover.
Join us for our journeys to the Battlefields of Waterloo, or follow Mercer’s Campaign through Bruges, Ghent and beautiful countryside taking in the best Chateaux and chocolate; or further afield with Wellington in The Peninsula with vineyards and port; or with Nelson & Wellington seizing the Danish fleet in Copenhagen.
We challenge accepted history with fresh insights, seen through the eyes of those who were there. We enjoy the best landscapes, art and architecture, great food and hospitality, so our tours are genuinely entertaining as great holidays for couples aswell as history buffs.
Please roam around the Campaigns & Culture site to learn more, and of course this GTroopRHA site remains here to inform you about the restoration, Mercer’s book of paintings, and our original research.
If you like what you see, please join the Campaigns & Culture News Club which will feature updates on our tours, the latest Mercer research and our talks.
