Another painting, ‘Marshal Ney at Waterloo’, signed and dated 1914, was presented by the artist to A. G. Temple in January 1916. It is on panel and of about the same size as N05204 and was in 1957 in the possession of D. G. C. Hicks, Leatherhead. It appears to be the last of the series of four depicting scenes from the Napoleonic campaigns. (See N05202 and N05205.)
