About this Artefact by: Waterloo 200 Coordinator

Date added: 13 Mar 2015

This kettle was used by an unknown British soldier on the stormy night before the Battle of Waterloo. This was almost certainly an officer’s item, in which he or his servant could have boiled water. Officers paid for their own equipment and could afford to take luxurious items on campaign in order to make their lives easier in often difficult conditions.
