Lieutenant General Sir Thomas Picton GCB (August 1758 – 18 June 1815) was a Welsh British Army officer who fought in a number of campaigns for Britain, and rose to the rank of lieutenant general. According to the historian Alessandro Barbero, Picton was "respected for his courage and feared for his irascible temperament." He is chiefly remembered for his exploits under the Duke of Wellington in the Iberian Peninsular War and at the Battle of Waterloo, where he was mortally wounded while his division stopped d'Erlon's corps attack against the allied centre left, and as a result became the most senior officer to die at Waterloo.                      Picton Wikipedia

Cockles have been harvested off Llansaint in Carmarthenshire for centuries. But the tradition of women supplementing the household income by gathering by hand and then transporting the shellfish on donkeys came to an end in 1973.
