    I don't want to hijack this thread and detract from John's superb work, but I'm hoping the collective knowledge of the contributors here can help me with a problem.
    For the past two years I've been researching the local men who fought during the Napoleonic Wars on behalf of the Ilkeston & District Local History Society (ilkestonhistory.org.uk), John Shaw being one of them. I have always hoped to present the findings with illustrations by a local artist, the late Rick Scollins.
    While I knew Rick quite well, the intervening years have meant that I and my colleagues have lost touch with his family and the originals of all his wonderful work. I can't tell you how much it means to finally come across, not just a Rick Scollins illustration, but a Rick Scollins illustration of John Shaw.
    If it's at all possible, I would really appreciate a high-quality scan of this graphic and, to really ask for the moon, any other of Rick's pictures that may be relevant.

    The illustration was originaly in a magazine called "Military Illustrated" which is no longer published, so I have no idea who has the original.
    Have you contacted the Household Cavalry museum?

    I am late to this as Google search led me to it, as I am making Two of these figures (with some scratching) to my 28mm cavalry figures, as I am hoping to display two of the 2nd charging past LHS on their way to attack the 54/55th Ligne and the other French Ligne units.

    An interesting question at Waterloo did the 2nd carry a Carbine as I read in 1815 they where instructed to carry them.
