Capt Shakespeare and Waterloo

I wonder if anyone can help me. I have recently discovered that an ancestor of mine, Capt Arthur Shakespeare was at Waterloo and promoted during the battle to Major acting as A.D.C.

Can anyone tell me more about him , particularly with regard to his actions during the day and what happened to him afterwards.

I have some way to go to catch up with him, I am a mere corporal at 1 Rifles.

Many thanks
