It was the first British campaign medal to be conferred upon every member of the British Army who served in the battle, regardless of rank. The Medal was also awarded to members of the King's German Legion and members of the British Army who served in the Battle of Ligny on June 16, 1815, and the Battle of Quatre Bras on June 16, 1815.
