Part of Ponsonby's Union Brigade - so named because it contained a regiment each from England, Scotland and Ireland - the 'Skins' took part in the famous charge against D'Erlon's infantry corps just after 2 p.m. With a strength of 453, they scattered Donzelot's entire Division, numbering 5,250 men.
