Guild Awards

The Guild of Battlefield Guides makes annually a number of awards which recognise the contributions made by members of the Guild to both the Guild and the craft of Battlefield Guiding.

The Nathaniel Wade Award allows the Guild to publicly recognise the contribution of an individual, group or organisation associated with the Guild, who through their efforts has made a significant contribution to the craft of battlefield guiding and the wider Military History community.

The Award is given to Guild members who deserve recognition for their personal contribution to the improvement and further development of the Guild.

The award honours the memory of the late Will Townend, in particular his willingness to share his extensive technical knowledge of Artillery and his wider knowledge of battlefields in general with his fellow Battlefield Guides. Those nominated for the award are recognised as selfless members of the Guild who freely and unselfishly share their knowledge with their peers.

The award honours the memory of the late David Chandler the historian - in particular his research into military history and his academic contribution to a wider understanding of Napoleonic warfare.
