Army Gold Medal for Albuhera awarded to Lieutenant-Colonel Sir William Inglis

Inglis commanded the 57th (West Middlesex) Regiment at the Battle of Albuera in 1811. When it was under intense pressure from a French attack Inglis was hit by canister shot which pierced his left breast and lodged in his back. Despite his wound, Inglis stayed with the Regimental Colour, encouraging his men with the words 'Die hard 57th, die hard'.

From a collection of orders and medals awarded to Lieutenant General Sir William Inglis, KCB, Peninsular War (1808-1814).
