A Waterloo Pair to the King's German Legion; Wounded at Battle of Ordal

A Waterloo Pair to the King's German Legion; Wounded at Battle of Ordal - Guelphen Military Merit Medal (CHRISTIAN SCHWARTZE CORPORAL im JNFAN ______ LLE); and Great Britain: Waterloo Medal (CHRISTIAN SCHWARTZE, 4th LINE BATT. K.G.L.). Naming is officially impressed. Naming is partially obscured on both, better than fair. Accompanied by documentation from the National Archives confirming Schwartze on the Nominal List and on the Pay List, as having fought at the Battle of Waterloo with the 4th Line Battalion and assorted research papers. Footnote: Christian Schwartze enlisted as a Private with the 4th Battalion, King's German Legion on December 12, 1805. His military history includes stops at Verden, Clooney Barracks, Tullamore, Blagdam, Zeeland; Messina, Gisso, Contessa, Augusta, Syracuse and Gauzien (Sicily); St. Vincente, St. Culgat, Valls and Esplugas (Spain); Oudres, Deal, Mons, Bois de Boulogne and Neuilly (France); and Barnstorff (Hanover). He was with the 4th Line Battalion and awarded the Guelphen Military Merit Medal for participation and being wounded three times at the Battle of Ordal, September 13, 1813. As noted by von Wissel: "Schutze Christian Schwartze, 4th Line Battalion, was leading his mortally wounded Lieutenant Graffe out of the battle at Ordal to the rear and went directly back to his unit, although already wounded himself. Shortly after, he received two more wounds which left him on the ground. Again, at Waterloo, he distinguished himself." Schwartze was only one of fifteen men to receive the Guelphen Military Merit Medal with the 4th Line Battalion.
