The Battle of Fishguard, which took place 22-24 February 1797, was the last time a hostile foreign force landed on British soil, and is therefore often referred to as “the last invasion of Britain”.

After the battle of Trafalgar in October 1805, there occurred the following year a land battle, which though small scale and unimportant in many ways, crucially showed that in the right circumstances that the British could also defeat the French on land.
In June 2016 the Waterloo Association ran a weekend trip to Waterloo looking at the campaign from the French perspective. Following the normal drinks reception at the Wellington Museum on the Friday evening Saturday saw 15 Association members visit Beaumont (Napoleon’s Headquarters on the night of 14th/15th June).
