Listing Detail Tabs

he King's German Legion (KGL) was a British Army unit of expatriate German
personnel, known for its excellent discipline and fighting ability.

The Legion was formed within months of the dissolution of the Electorate of
Hanover in 1803, and constituted as a mixed corps by the end of 1803. Although
the Legion didn't ever fight autonomously and remained a part of the British
Army during the Napoleonic Wars (1804-15), it played a vital role in several
campaigns, most notably the Walcheren Campaign, the Peninsular War, and the
Hundred Days (1815).

At the Battle of Waterloo, the 2nd Light Battalion - with members of the
1st Light Battalion and the 5th Line Battalion - famously defended the
farmhouse and road at La Haye Sainte. As the 5th Line Battalion was on its way
to reinforce the defenders of La Haye Sainte, the French cavalry rode them down;
only a few of the intended relievers survived. After a six hour defence, without
ammunition, or reinforcements, the Germans were forced to abandon the farm,
leaving the buildings in shambles and their dead behind.
