Oswestry Commemorative Scroll

Commissioned by the Shropshire War Memorials Association and on permanent display at the Oswestry Town Museum (Shropshire) this Scroll commemorates the soldiers from Oswestry who fought in the Peninsular War 1808-1814 and the Battle of Waterloo 1815.

The scroll shows renditions, in gouache paint and graphite pencil, of the medals awarded for both of those Campaigns along with their medal ribbons with, in the case of the Peninsular War, the full collection of clasps that denoted engagement in a particular arena.
