Relics from the battlefield of Quatre Bras June 16th 1815

The battle of Quatre Bras on June 16th 1815 was a crucial holding engagement fought between British and Brunswick troops and the Infantry and Cavalry commanded by Ney. Centred around a crossroads hence the name Quatre Bras where 4 roads met. This was a fierce fight which ended in virtual stalemate but bought the allies vital time to bring up reinforcements.

I have only very few relics from this battle consisting of two lots of Canister rounds.
