|Outstanding soldiers of the East Lancashire Regiment
Each year the best soldiers of the regiment 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); where, for one reason or another, the medal was not issued, the entry is marked 'N. S.' (not sanctioned) and struck through. The regiment was based on the 30th Regimental District - Burnley. The 1st battalion embarked for Bengal in 1880, and in 1885 was stationed at Meean Meer; by 1895 it was at Lucknow, and took part in the Chitral Relief Force of that year. This added "Chitral" to the regimental honours. The battalion returned to England in 1900, but was almost immediately sent to South Africa, earning the distinction of "South Africa, 1900-02". The 2nd battalion returned from Ceylon and India in 1881 (having served in Afghanistan in 1878 to 1880, adding "Ahmad Khel" and "Afghanistan, 1878-80" to the colours), and in 1885 was stationed at Dover. In that year the battalion was moved to Ireland, from which it embarked for Gibraltar 21 January 1893. Returning to England briefly, the troops were sent off to India in 1897, and in 1906 were at Poona.
