P&O Steamship Nepaul - The Nepaul shown aground on the Shagstone, although she went aground further east. Nepaul was built by Alexander Stephan and Sons, Glasgow, and originally laid down as Theodor Korner for the short-lived German Transatlantic Steam Navigation Line. On 10 December 1890 the Nepaul was inbound from Calcutta when it was wrecked on Shagstone Rock off Plymouth at 19:20 having missed the pilot in thick fog. There were no casualties, and the passengers and specie were taken off the following morning, but most of the cargo was ruined. Date: 1890

Waterloo Medal 1815

Waterloo Medal 1815. One of two medals awarded to Surgeon William Jones. Surgeon Jones served as Regimental Surgeon to the 40th (2nd Somersetshire) Regiment in the Peninsular and at Waterloo. The surgeons in Wellington?s Army were barely able to cope with the thousands of casualties after Waterloo. Additional medical officers and civilian volunteers were sent from England to help, even then they were hopelessly overstretched. The Waterloo medal was the first ever ?campaign medal? issued by the British Army, given to every soldier regardless of their rank or role. It was awarded to all soldiers present at the Battle of Waterloo and the actions during the two previous days. Associated with Napoleonic Wars, Waterloo (1815). Date: 1815
