|Outstanding gun lascars in the British Army
Each year the best soldiers 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). The recording of these native names may not have been done consistently: in each case we have treated the second name as the 'surname', e. g., Singh in Lal Singh; Veera in Hassim Veera, and we have treated single names (Teerevengodum and Rangayan) as surnames. The ranks represented are private, naique (equivalent of a corporal), lance-naique, havildar (sepoy equivalent of a sergeant), and havildar-major.
