Waterloo 1815 (Lieut. J. Anthony 1st Battn. 40 Regt.), fitted with ornate replacement silver ring, large ball and straight-bar suspension, unofficially, but contemporarily re-engraved naming, very fine, with original riband

James Anthony, who was commissioned Lieutenant in May 1811, was severely wounded at the Battle of Vittoria, 21 June 1813 and led the burial of Lieutenant Anthony Malone following the Battle of Toulouse, 10 April 1814. Serving in Captain C. Ellis's Company at Waterloo, Anthony was wounded for a second time and placed on Half-Pay in November 1819. He appears to have re-purchased his commission into the 22nd Foot in September 1832 but did not live to claim his Military General Service Medal.
