Military General Service Medal, Private Charles Gunter, 1st Line Battalion, King's German Legion

6 Clasps - TALAVERA, BUSACO, FUENTES D'ONOR, CUIDAD RODRIGO, SALAMANCA, NIVELLE (CHARLES GUNTER, 1st LINE Bn K.G.L.). Naming is officially impressed, extremely fine. Accompanied by documentation from the National Archives confirming him being awarded the MGSM with the six clasps, as well as being on the Waterloo Roll, plus related Pay Lists, along with other assorted research papers. Footnote: Charles Gunter is first traced as a Private on the muster rolls for the 1st Line Battalion, King's German Legion on December 25, 1803, having joined from the Depot at Hilsea Barracks, Gosport. His military history includes stops at Bexhill, Sheerness, Stade (Hanover), Kinsale (Regimental Hospital), Gibraltar, Sorgenfreg (Baltic Expedition), Zeeland, Ramsgate; Lisbon, Paze Leonia, Badajoz, Vizes, Celerico, Elvas and Almeida: Regimental Hospital (Portugal), Spain, Estende, Peninsula; Tournay and Bois de Boulogne (France), Flanders (Netherlands). According to Mullens' MGS report, Gunter was discharged from service on August 4, 1815, which contradicts other documentation that he was at Depot in Hanover and that he was discharged on February 8, 1816.
