Lt. P. T. de Barrailler, 33rd Foot.

Peter Toussaint de Barrailler was, as his name implies, of Gallic origin.
The irony of fate decreed that he should use his Bword against the Gallic

after Waterloo.

Lt. Basil Jackson, Rl. Staff Corps.

The following memoir of this distinguished veteran appeared in the
Illustrated London News of 9th Nov., 1889 : " A gallant military
veteran, who has died at the great age of ninety-four, was reckoned one
of the four surviving officers of the British Army present at the battle
of Waterloo. Colonel Basil Jackson, born at Glasgow on June 27,
1795, was son of Major Basil Jackson ; he entered the Military College
in 1808, and, having received his commission as ensign, did not join a
Line regiment, but was transferred to the Royal Staff Corps, where he
learned the duties of the Quartermaster-General's Department and
engineering. In that branch of the Army he was employed in Holland
and Belgium, in 1814 and J 815, and in the Waterloo campaign did good
service in clearing the roads, and on the Duke of Wellington's Staff.
He accompanied the army to Paris, and was afterwards selected to go
to St. Helena with Napoleon. In that island he remained till about a



THE WATERLOO ROLL CALL. 39

year and a half before Napoleon's death. At a later period he was
employed in Nova Scotia and in Canada, taking part in the construction
of the Rideau Canal. He held the Professorship of Military Surveying
in the East India Company's Military College at Addiscombe during
twenty years. After retiring from the army he lived at Hillsborough,
near Ross, in Herefordshire/' M. 28th March, 1828, the dau. of Col.
Muttlebury, C.B.

Lt. A. Brauns, Rl. Staff Corps.

Probably a son of the Col. John Brauns, of the German Legion, who
was killed at the battle of Talavera. The above officer bore the names
of " Augustus Christ. Gotleib." Was placed on h. p. as lieut., in 1819.
Living 1846.



COMMANDANT AT HEAD-QUARTERS.

Col. Sir Colin Campbell, K.C.B., 2nd Ft. Gds.

5th son of John Campbell, of Melfort, by Colina, dau. of John Campbell,
of Auchalader. In 1792 he ran away from Perth Academy, and entered
himself on the books of a ship bound for the West Indies. He was met
in the fruit market at Kingston, Jamaica, by his brother Patrick (aftds.
an admiral), a lieut. on board a man-of-war, who brought him home.
In 1793 became a midshipman on board an East Indiaman. Two years
later we find him serving as a lieut. in the 3rd Batt. Breadalbane
Fencibles, and in 1799 he was appointed ens. in a West India Kegt.
Exchanged to the Ross-shire Buffs, and as eapt., served Under Sir
A. Wellesley at the storming of Ahmednuggur, where his distinguished
gallantry won him a brevet majority. At Assaye he had two horses
shot under him, and was severely wounded. He accompanied ISir
A. Wellesley to the Peninsula, and was for a considerable time on the
staff of the army. For his services in Spain he obtained the gold cross
with six clasps, and in Jan., 1815, was made K.C.B. He was a splendid
soldier, but a bad French scholar. " When he wished his dinner to be
arranged on the table, he used, as it were, to address the dishes, 'Bif-teck
venezigi! Pet its path allez la!'*' (anecdote by Wellington). Was
Governor of Ceylon from 1840-7. During his residence there he
frequently heard from his great chief, Wellington, his attached friend.
" We are both growing old," wrote the Duke to Campbell ; " God knows
if we shall ever meet again. Happen what may, I shall never forget
our first meeting under the walls of Ahmednuggur." Sir Colin returned
to England in June, 1847, and d. on the 13th of same month, in London,
aged seventy-one, and was buried in St. James's Church, Piccadilly.
