The Scots Greys formed part of the Union Brigade. Originally in reserve, the Greys counter-attacked to great effect against the disorganised French columns of Drouet D Erlons I Corps. Carried away by their initial success, however, the brigade failed to rally and continued towards the French positions. The Scots Greys in particular, forgetting their supporting role and ignoring the “recall”, charged on in disordered groups, some of whom reached the French guns on the other side of the valley. By this time their horses were blown and a swift retribution followed in the shape of a counter-attack by the French Lancers. The brigade suffered very heavy losses, being effectively destroyed, and it played no further part in the battle.
