At Waterloo the Marquis, then Lord Uxbridge, commanded the Anglo-Belgian cavalry, contributing to the victory but losing his right leg. In a garden near the church at Waterloo there is a monument to the leg which is buried there. He was made Field Marshal in 1846 and at the time of his death was the only Field Marshal outside the royal family.
