      Efforts are under way to restore the Hougoumont Farm on the site of the 1815 Battle of Waterloo in Belgium. Wellington later said the outcome of the battle was decided here. In addition to restoring the structures on the farm, the Project Hougoumont aim is to preserve the few remaining trees that still bear the riddle marks of musketballs.


      Project Hougoumont, chaired by Professor Richard Holmes, is supported by many historical authors including Bernard Cornwell and Simon Scarrow, and such distinguished personages as the present Duke of Wellington .


      To find out how you can help preserve and restore the battlefield site in time for the 2015 commemoration of the Battle of Waterloo, go to http://www.projecthougoumont.com
