Is there a sticker for men who fought at the Battle of Waterloo?

I have added a category but it's not very visible. There are 2 profiles of mine that qualify. I'd like their service to stand out.

Southall-485 and Bye-406

Thanks, Irene

I did find this hiding out there:

It doesn't look like a whole lot has gone on with it. It came from this question on G2G.

I think it's noted on there that the Military and War Project seems like they would normally cover things of this nature, but oddly, there's no mention of the Napoleonic Era Wars on the page.

So I'm not sure if that helps, but I'm certain it didn't clearly answer your question.

There is this category as well, that you can put your ancestor's profile into.

It appears there are currently 77 profiles in that category.
You can use the generic Veteran's Recognition sticker:

Hi Irene, There is a temporary sticker to use on Napoleonic Wars Project page, that you could use. And as Scott said you can add the battle of Waterloo Category and the Veteran's Recognition sticker. Thank you Scott for finding that.

If you would like to join the project, Just add your name and what you're working on. Or if you would like I can do it for you.

Thanks, Richard. I had already added the Waterloo category but it's not obvious at first glance. I have now added the temporary sticker for the Napoleonic Wars. Both my men served longterm in the army through this campaign and afterwards. The sticker does draw attention to their service. Thanks again.
