Where are my Rubbers?

And by rubbers I mean my wellies, which are named after the Duke.

I have been negligent in my historical trivia and missed post number 1815, which of course corresponds with the year the Duke of Wellington led the armies of Britain and Prussia to victory over le Grande Armee of Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. This of course allowed the British Empire and British culture to flourish, which of course reached a pinnacle with the creation of Coronation Street.

Three cheers for the Duke of Wellington.
