The Commissariat officers who served at Waterloo were not granted the Waterloo medal, nor were their names distinguished in the Army List with a ‘W’ to denote such service, although in after years those that had served in the Peninsula were granted the ‘P’ before their names and they subsequently received the M.G.S. medal in 1848. No officer of this name, however, has been traced for this period.
