VKGD – 2nd KING’S GERMAN DRAGOONS  at GARCIA HERNANDEZ 1812
In 1803, seeking to strike at the British but thwarted by the Royal Navy’s command of the English Channel, Napoleon sent an army corps to occupy the King of England’s Hanoverian electorate, over which Britain’s dynasty reigned, and forced her to adopt neutrality. The consequence of this particular aggression was a  continual movement of men from the former Hanoverian Army to England , where they were formed as the King’s German Legion. When the French invaded Portugal in the summer of 1810 for the third time, Wellington ’s rearguards held off Massena and his army, falling back in good order to Lisbon and the Lines of Torres Vedres. During this period the KGL were constantly on duty screening the rearguard, manning outposts, and gaining a reputation as superb horsemen and swordsmen during many clashes with enemy cavalry. During the winter of 1811-1812, Wellington successfully took the fortresses of Ciudad Rodrigo and Badajoz and advanced into Spain with an army of  50,000 men. In late June the Allies drove in the defences at Salamanca and occupied the city. It was the first Spanish city to be liberated from the French.
Next morning the pursuit was taken up by the KGL Dragoons led by Von Bock. They were to achieve lasting fame and the admiration of the Allied armies when, near the village of Garcia Hernandez , they attacked and destroyed French cavalry and several battalions of infantry in square.
During the charge on a large square of  elements of the French 6th Light Infantry which had ranks of men kneeling and standing with levelled bayonets, a loose horse was shot and fell thrashing in agony and scattering the French. Rittmeister Von Usslar
Gleichen saw this chaos and led his cheering squadron through the gap and in minutes destroyed the square, hacking down those who resisted and capturing the rest.

Features the wounded horse and rider pinning down an unfortunate victim, another  mounted Dragoon is in the act of
breaking the square and scattering the French 6th Light Infantry  in all directions. The seven French and two mounted Dragoons fit together as a vignette with our unique interlocking bases.
