During the trooping of the colours this week an old battle cry was re-introduced with the army, as 1350 men shouted 'Oranje boven!' (Orange for ever!) in honour of king Willem-Alexander.
We found some other battle cries as well in several memoirs of men and officers who fought at both Quatre Bras and Waterloo, which were feverishly shouted moments before they attacked with lowered muskets and bayonets fixed. We like to share these with you here:
Commemorative led coin from 1865 for the battle of Waterloo with the Prince of Orange.
Inscription 'Held van Waterloo' (Hero of Waterloo)
