About this Artefact by: Waterloo 200 Coordinator

Date added: 13 Mar 2015

The British Army that fought at Waterloo used savage punishments on its own soldiers. Officers often believed that only fear of brutal discipline could keep their men obedient. This item was used to inflict whippings on any non-commissioned officer or private soldier for various offences.
