The only wound Napoleon Bonaparte ever received in battle- was at Ratisbon, in 1809, when he was struck by a piece of shell. The Emperor hastily bandaged the wound, and paid-no fur-ther-^attention to it till the battle was won. The splinter of shell is; now m the Army Museum in Paris. *A viscounty and a gift of £50,000 is being suggested as a reward tor bir Douglas Haig's great services to the country. This would be a similar reward to that bestowed on Lord Kitchener for his work in Boer War This was in addition to the £30,000 and a seat in the House of Lords which was given to Kitchener for sro.isiimg the Khalifa at Omdurman.
