About this Artefact by: Clare BCN Administrator

Date added: 13 Mar 2015

This painting by John Cawse, produced in 1821, just 6 years after the Battle of Waterloo, shows a soldier regaling a tavern full of people with stories of his adventures. From the medal of the soldier’s chest we know he is a “Waterloo Man”. On a variety of levels, Cawse’s painting shows how significant and interesting an event the Battle of Waterloo had become within British culture.
