Gebhard Lebrecht v. Blücher (1742-1819), Prussian Field Marshal, termed 'Marshal Forwards' from his form of attack. He defeated Marshal Ney in 1813 and visited London with his Sovereign in June 1814. This medal, which was struck by Edward Thomason, refers to the state of affairs brought about by the Peace of Paris. See also note to Brown 1 p193.802.
