Negatives Collection, Leicestershire Record Office

In this satirical cartoon, Daniel Lambert (the then-largest man in England) is riding Monarch (the then-largest horse in England), and terrifying Napoleon Bonaparte. Napoleon is declaring he'll put off the invasion on the British Isles, as if this is what the English light cavalry is, then what must the heavy cavalry be like?!
