According to the official army lists published by the War Office: officers who received the Waterloo Medal had a "W" prefixed before their name in the lists.

Alexander Cavalie Mercer has a "W" before his name in the army lists. The earliest I saw was 1824.

This is a no preview work: might refer to Mercer's medal.

Good hunting.
