After the Battle of Waterloo was the first time a medal was given to everyone who took part. Medals and a variety of items were passed round, including khaki armbands which were worn by persons not in uniform who were engaged in other activities such as farmers, business owners, but later on they may have been called up.

They can also be times of stress. In some cases these overwhelming feelings can lead to a mental illness. Some mental illnesses can occur at a young age; fortunately there is a growing recognition of the importance of helping young people build mental resilience, from the earliest stages, in order to cope with the challenges they may face in today’s world.
