Christian Friedrichs, Canonier bei d. 2n. Comp. des Art. Regts.

Christian Friedrichs was awarded the Guelphic Medal for his bravery at the battle of Waterloo. A translation of his citation reads:

‘Kanonier Heinrich Busse and Christian Friedrichs while trying hard to get the gun in position were both brushed/squeezed (crushed) by the gun and had severe breast wounds, but although Friedrichs was spitting blood and was sent by his officer to rest. But he quickly came back and said “I was afraid you were not able to shoot anymore, so I had to come back to assist’”.
