As a French Grand Battery fires on the British Lines D'Erlon's 1st Corp moves up with Marcognet's and Durutte's Divisions setting of first -On the French left flank Jerome's Division watches Hougamont- meanwhile Jaquinot's Cavalry Division moves up to protect the right flank of D'Erlon's Corp as Vandeleur and 4 regiments of British Light cavalry move between Papelotte and La Haye to threaten it. Jaquinot's outnumbered cavalry charge the leading British Cavalry regiments whose commanders lead from the front to bolster their morale. The British cavalry are contained between Papeltte and Le Haye as the blown cavalry regiments of both sides fall back.
