    Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg Waterloo Medal

    Hello! This medal was issued on october 28 1816 to commemorate the campaigns of 1814 and 1815; the name Waterloo Medal is improper and only used by english dealers and collectors.
  8. Thank you very much, Peter. This helps me.
  9. Hello! I'm loocking for all informations about Isabel Constance Vesey, Voluntary Aid Organisation, officer of the Order of the British Empire (1 january 1920), commandant in Empress Eugenie's Hospital for officers in Farnborough during WW1. Thanks. Augustin1813.
  10. Hi Jaybo, All surviving récipients of the 1813, 1814 and 1815 campaign medals for combattants and not-combattants were eligible for this medall. They had to show the award document for the campaign medal to claim this 1863 commemorative medal. Approximately 60.000 were given. [Dietmar Raksch: Preussen Verleihungsurkunden und Besitzzeugnisse 1793 - 1972.]
  11. Jaybo, No difference between the medals issued to officers and other ranks. They are in bronze. Those for civilian are in black cast iron and those for the ladies of the Order of Louise, in sparkling steel. The colours of the ribbons are also différents.
