We only did 'The Prelude' by Wordsworth at school but that's Rastrick Grammar for you ;-) However, i ddi get my O-level in English Lit. I think. It was sooo long agao :-)
I have got to know him more having been to Dove Cottage and seeing Ken Russell's 'Clouds of Glory' duet of TV films on Wordsworth & Coleridge.

I found this limerick by Frank Richards:

An ancestor at Waterloo
Fought solidly all the day through;
He slashed and he hacked,
Through bodies tight packed,
And managed to reach platform two.
