Sir Hussey Vivian Exhibition at Royal Cornwall Museum

Waterloo is one of the world’s most famous and important battles. We all know it was a showdown between the military giants of the time, Napoleon and Wellington, but was a Cornish man, Sir Richard Hussey Vivian, really crucial to securing battle victory?

A new exhibition at the Royal Cornwall Museum explores his personal story and political career featuring original weapons, Vivian’s own essentials for the military front line, medals and paintings from the time.

Vivian was Emma’s great, great, great grandfather, and we have produced a limited edition of our Waterloo mug with a special backstamp in support of the exhibition and to commemorate Vivian’s involvement. Because of the small quantity these are fast becoming a collector’s item, and a small number of these mugs are now available at the museum.

The exhibition opens on Saturday 13th June; see here for further details.
