Summary

Alasdair Mòr taken by the press gang to the Battle of Waterloo.

Before Alasdair Mòr was taken by the press gang to the Battle of Waterloo, an old woman made a charm for him saying he would never be killed by a bullet. He returned twenty years later. His mother didn't recognise him as he had a long beard, and wouldn't believe it was him until he had brought pail of water from a certain well.
