|Outstanding soldiers of the 21st regiment of Foot
The 21st Regiment of Foot (The Royal North British Fusiliers) was in two battalions. The 1st battalion moved from Malta to the West Indies in 1860, returning to England in 1864, to Scotland in 1865, and to Birr in 1866: the depot was at Birr. In 1869 the battalion was moved to India. The second battalion was re-formed in Scotland in 1857; moved to England in 1858, and was at Aldershot in 1860: in 1862 it embarked for Ireland, and in 1863 was sent to India. Each year just a handful of outstanding soldiers of the regiment were chosen for good conduct medals and gratuities: these are listed here. There were two lists, one for men recommended for the Good Conduct Medal without a gratuity, and one for gratuities - £5 to a private, £10 to a corporal, and £15 to a serjeant. Both lists are indexed here, and each gives rank, name, regimental number, date of recommendation and date of issue. (The sample scan is from the 105th foot)
