Very excited to share my favourite peice! I purchased a Waterloo medal from the SOS and am very pleased with this addition to my (limited) collection. I feel like a true collector now.
The medal is named to John Beaumont of the 33rd regiment of foot. This regiment served at the Battle of Quatre Bras and Waterloo immediately after. At waterloo they suffered 4 officers and 32 men killed; 8 officers and 92 men wounded; and 48 men missing. I am compiling a more thorough understanding of the regiment, which I may post later.
I have found the medalroll online and his name was written as "Jns" which was intruiging. Usually the shortform is Jno, however, I didn't see any of those. I stumbled across some other forums (which may have even been about this medal!), which stated that Jns was used for John.
The medal is one the original iron ring and suspension. There are also six stars engraved along the top of the rim, three on each side of the suspension.
I am still on the hunt for other information. If anyone has any resources or directions to point me in, that would be great. Otherwise, enjoy the photos!
