  arthur wellesly, 1st duke of wellington   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, Marquess of Douro, Marquess of Wellington, Earl of Wellington, Viscount Wellington of Talavera and of Wellington, Baron Douro of Wellesley (May 1, 1769 - September 14, 1852) was an Anglo-Irish aristocrat who became a British soldier and politician.
Following the successful conclusion of that campaign, Arthur was appointed to the supreme military and political command in the Deccan; while in that position he defeated the robber chieftain Dhundia Wagh (who had ironically escaped prison in Seringapatam during the last battle of the Mysore war) and the Marathas (in 1803).
During this time, Wellington was greeted by a hostile reaction from the crowds at the opening of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, and eventually the bill was passed after the Whigs threatened to have the House of Lords packed with their own followers if it were not.

 Ha'penny Bridge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Ha'penny Bridge (known later for a time as the Penny Ha'penny Bridge) is a pedestrian bridge built in 1816 over the River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland.
Originally called the Wellington Bridge (after the Duke of Wellington), the bridge got its now ubiquitous name from both its distinct shape and the original toll of one halfpenny (later, one penny, two farthings).
The toll was dropped in 1919; before this, turnstiles lay on either side of it.

 The 78th Highland Regiment
The regiment which fought in the Battle of Assaye (considered by the Duke of Wellington to have been his most successful), which was hailed by an excited populace as the "Saviours of India", has as colourful and glorious a history as any regiment of its time.
In 1795 the 78th were attacking the Cape of Good Hope (the Dutch having become revolutionary allies of the French) and forcing the surrender of Cape Town and Wynberg.
The immensely long, hard marches in wretched climatic conditions at unaccustomed altitudes and over inhospitable terrain must have been an ordeal greater than the actual fighting and their sacrifices were later duly recognized.
