|Outstanding soldiers of the King's (Liverpool Regiment)
Each year the best soldiers of the regiment were chosen for long service and good conduct medals. This register gives rank, name, regimental number, and date of recommendation. (The sample scan is from the East Surrey regiment). The register is essentially a register of recommendations, annotated with details of the issue of the medals. Where no gratuity accompanied the medal, the entry is marked 'W. G.' (without gratuity); where, for one reason or another, the medal was not issued, the entry is marked 'N. S.' (not sanctioned) and struck through. The regiment was based on the 8th Regimental District - Warrington. The 1st battalion returned from Aden to England in September 1879, moved to Ireland in 1882, and in 1885 was stationed at the Curragh. Having moved back to England in 1889, 11 February 1891 it embarked for Bermuda, and in 1893 went from there to Halifax, Nova Scotia. In 1895 the battalion was transferred to the West Indies, and in 1897 to the Cape of Good Hope, taking part in the South African war and gaining the honours "South Africa, 1899-1902" and "Defence of Ladysmith". The 2nd battalion embarked for India in September 1877, took part in the Afghan war of 1878 to 1880 (gaining the honours "Peiwar Kotal" and "Afghanistan, 1878-1880"), and by 1885 was stationed at Ranikhot; serving in Burmah for a period ("Burmah, 1885-1887"). The battalion returned from India via Aden 13 November 1892, and in 1895 was at Colchester. In 1897 the 2nd battalion was moved to Ireland.
