|Outstanding soldiers of the 66th regiment of Foot
The 66th (The Berkshire) Regiment of Foot fought in the Crimea, then in 1857 was sent to the East Indies. It returned to England in 1865: the regimental depot was at Colchester. In 1867 the regiment was sent to the Channel Islands; 1868 to Ireland; and in 1870 back to the East Indies. 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)
