|Outstanding soldiers of the 8th regiment of Foot
The 8th (The King's) Regiment of Foot was in two battalions. The 1st battalion embarked for Bombay in 1846, took part in the capture of Delhi and the relief of Lucknow, and returned to England in 1860. The home depot was at Chatham. The battalion moved to Ireland for 1865-1866, and then embarked from England to Malta in 1868. The second battalion was based at Templemore in Ireland, but was sent abroad in 1858, and served on Gibraltar to 1863, on Malta to 1868, then returning to England. 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)
