|Outstanding soldiers of the 15th regiment of Foot
The 15th (The Yorkshire East Riding) Regiment of Foot was in two battalions. The 1st battalion returned from Gibraltar in 1857. The home depot was at Pembroke, and in 1860 they were serving on Jersey; in that year the battalion was transferred to Ireland; to North America in 1862; to Bermuda in 1868; and back to Ireland in 1870. The second battalion was raised in England in 1858, and was sent to Malta; in 1863 to Gibraltar; and in 1868 to Ireland. 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)
