National ArchivesOutstanding soldiers of the York and Lancaster Regiment (1881-1901)
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 65th Regimental District - Pontefract. The 1st battalion returned from Egypt 21 April 1884, the regiment having gained the honours "Egypt, 1882" and "Tel-el-Kebir". In 1885 it was based at Dover. In 1889 the battalion was sent to Ireland; it was at Cork in 1895; returning to England in that year. In 1899 the battalion went out to South Africa, adding "South Africa, 1900-1902" and "Relief of Ladysmith" to the regimental honours. The 2nd battalion returned from Egypt in 1883, but in October of that year embarked for Bermuda; in 1886 was moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia; in 1888 to the West Indies; in 1891 to South Africa; in 1897 to Mauritius; and on to India.
