Comments

This was the first true campaign medal issued to all ranks who took part in the battles of Waterloo.

It should be noted that the condition of this medal is usually not quite as good as slightly later awards, the reason for this was that the Waterloo Medal was widely and proudly worn by many recipients both in uniform and in civilian clothes for years after the Napoleonic Wars ended.
