The Waterloo Medal for sale with impressed designation, ‘Trp.Serg.Maj.John White. 12th Regt.Light Dragoons’. The medal complete with a silver horizontal suspension with stylised loop for attachment to the disc ring. Complete with older (Victorian) ribbon.

Condition report: Some service wear to the obverse and reverse of the disc (as per images). Designation clear. The ribbon showing general use, and some stains.

Notes on John White: Confirmed on the medal roll and muster roll. White served at on the Expedition to Walcheren in 1809 and at the Battle of Waterloo. From 1823 White was promoted to Quarter Master of the Regiment from 1823. He died of Cholera in Manchester in 1833 whilst still serving with his regiment. After White’s death, his widow successfully obtained a Royal Bounty / Pension, based on his service with the regiment, and the fact she was left without any means of support. The service wear to White’s Waterloo Medal clearly shows he wore the medal with pride between 1816 and 1833. Various copy documents & research material included in the sale.

Notes on the suspension: There is a painting in the National Portrait Gallery dating from the 1835, and painted by William Salter. The painting depicts Samson Stawell, White’s commander at Waterloo. Stawell is wearing his Waterloo Medal with a very similar replacement suspension to this medal. In fact various Waterloo Medal’s from troops of the 12th Light Dragoons have been recorded with similar horizontal suspension.
