|Outstanding soldiers of the Bedfordshire 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 Regimental District No. 16 - Bedford. The 1st battalion returned from Nova Scotia 10 February 1870, serving in Ireland to 1872, Jersey to 1873, England to 1877, Ireland to 1882, England to 1887 (by 1885 it was stationed at Colchester), Ireland to 1888, and then back in England. It embarked for Malta 12 February 1890, and was transferred the following December to India, being stationed at Pershawur in 1895.
