Waterloo Veteran of the Month: Monsieur Loria

Monsieur Loria of the 24th Mounted Chasseur Regiment (light cavalry) and a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor. Unfortunately he has lost his right eye. From the The Anne S. K. Brown Military Collection

next episode: Maude


  1. Sad about his eye loss, but he survived ...and his memories to comfort and urge him on in life!

  2. But he didn't lose his dignity and proud bearing.

  3. I never tire of these veteran photos as they are true works of art. I wonder if the photographer recognized the power of these images when he took them.


I love to read your remarks and suggestions!
