Client statement:
The purpose for the use of the e-book is somewhat different to the usual. We wanted to have a database, which could be accessed by visitors in the museum, showing the images and details of the medals awarded to members of our antecedent regiments for the Peninsular War and the Waterloo Campaign.
We are very happy with the result, as well as the work and support that went in to its creation.
