Motion text

That this House remembers the Battle of Waterloo two centuries ago this month; honours the 27th Inniskilling Fusiliers who were the antecedents of today's Royal Irish Regiment and who fought so bravely to defeat Napoleon at Waterloo; pays homage in particular to the Duke of Wellington, a native of Ireland as it was then; and reaffirms its pledge never to forget those who fell so gallantly for freedom and democracy and who paved the way for the UK's tremendous armed forces of today.
