The latest addition to my collection of French personality figures is General Charles de la Bédoyére, ADC to Napoleon during the hundred days campaign. The figure is FN/371 Aide de Camp, holding letter (horse FNH/13).
La Bédoyére was played in the film Waterloo by Philippe Forquet who interestingly was at one time engaged to Sharon Tate. His acting career never really took off although he did have a part in a US TV series called The Young Rebels set in the American Revolution.
La Bédoyére was to meet an unfortunate fate after Waterloo being amongst the few French officers who were caught by the allies and shot by firing squad.
