British Sentry keeping watch on Nijmegen Bridge; Second Worl

Photograph showing aan Irish Guardsman keeping watch on the Bridge at Nijmegen, September 1944. On 17th September 1944 Operation 'Market Garden' was put into action; a bold plan devised by Field-Marshal Montgomery to drop thousands of airborne troops into Holland to capture an invasion route into Germany. The British First Airborne, American 81st and 101st Divisions took part in the plan, which was ultimately unsuccessful. This photographed was staged (for the Illustrated London News) and the soldier is James Lawler of the 1st Battalion Irish Guards. The sentry box was previously manned by Germans and a picture of the Fuhrer can be seen, still pinned to the side of the wooden position. Apparently the ILN correspondent had to be encouraged to make the high ascent to the box by ladder as he was scared of heights!!

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
