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.

Our application process is in two stages: an application form, and an interview.

The first stage is an application form.

The 2019 application process will go live in February 2019.

The second phase is a Skype interview, carried out in March, with those successful at the application form stage.

To apply for WU 2019

If you are a serving person or a veteran, please visit this page again in February 2019 to get the application form for 2019.
