National ArchivesOutstanding soldiers of the 40th regiment of Foot (1860-1870)
The 40th (The 2nd Somersetshire) Regiment of Foot embarked for New South Wales in 1852. It was serving at Melbourne in 1860. It was transferred to New Zealand, taking part in the conflict there, and returned to England in 1866, and Ireland in 1869: the regimental depot was at Birr. 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)
