  Ah I remember when that came out, think I still have a few figures laying around somewhere, might have that book you are talking about somewhere as well. They refer to the initials of the generals from what I remember so presumably 'KEL' would be General Kellerman who commanded the French Third Cavalry Corps, which had a fair few Cuirassiers in it. 'NEY ' is presumably Marshall Ney. 'PAC' would be Sir Dennis Pack I imagine whose brigade included the 42nd and 92nd Highlanders. 'UXB' would be Uxbridge (the saw they used to amputate his leg is still in a museum somewhere I think). 'ZIE' would be General Zieten, who commanded one of the Prussian Corps. 'HAL', is perhaps either Sir Colin Halkett who commanded the fifth brigade or Hugh Halkett who commanded one of the Hanoverian Brigades. 'WEL' is Wellington I presume and 'HIL' would be Lord Hill. 'BUL' could be von Bulow, another Prussian General.
