SHOW & TELL FRIDAY
More Show & Tell participants are at our host Kelly
As you maybe know I am living in Waterloo near Brussels the famous battle field of Napoleon.
And as a good Waterloo citizen I have a few items concerning this battle.
This is one of the very rare medals which Napoleon gave to his soldiers who shared the exile with him in St. Helena. I lent it already several times to the Wellington Museum in Waterloo. Apparently there are only about 160 of these medals remaining in the whole world.
Mr. Gattino of course has the whole battle with the French, German, Dutch, and British soldiers.
