Napoleon in his pomp in a painting by Jacques-Louis David
The medal awarded to an indestructible soldier at Waterloo who miraculously survived eight lance wounds has emerged for sale for £9,000.
Sergeant William Porteous had every part of his body pierced in the historic 1815 battle which sealed Napoleon's fate.
He was severely injured but went on to recover. His medals are now being sold by a private collector in London.
