Waterloo Uncovered is open to all current and former service personnel (reservist or regular). We welcome applications from all ranks, units or trades, and do not discriminate on the grounds of age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, disability, experience, or motivation — if you are interested then we would like to hear from you. Whilst a key focus of the charity is assistance to those who are wounded, injured, or sick (whatever the cause and whether or not it happened in service), we do not exclude those who are fully fit. If you need the assistance of a carer to join the project, then we can also accommodate them — please let us know in your application.

The next excavation will take place in Belgium, 6 to 20 July 2019.

The application process is in two stages: an application form and a Skype interview. Those successful at the application form stage will be invited to participate in a Skype interview in March.

The 2019 application process is now live. The deadline for applications is midnight on Thursday 28th February.
