|Outstanding soldiers of the Duke of Wellington's (West Riding 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 33rd Regimental District - Halifax. The 1st battalion embarked for India 24 October 1875, and by 1885 was stationed at Nowshera in Bengal; it returned from India 18 December 1889; and was at Dover in 1895. The 2nd battalion returned from Burmah 10 April 1876; was transferred to Ireland in 1880; back (from Tipperary) to England in 1885; to Bermuda in 1886; to Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1888; to the West Indies in 1891; to South Africa in 1893; and to India in 1897.
