|Outstanding soldiers of the King's Own (Royal Lancaster 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 4th Regimental District - Lancaster. The 1st battalion returned from Gibraltar and the West Indies in 1881, and in 1885 was at Aldershot, and in 1895 at Portsmouth. The 2nd battalion embarked for the Cape of Good Hope in 1878, adding "South Africa, 1879" to the regimental honours, and in 1880 was sent on to India, where it was established at Poona by 1885. In 1895 it was at Nusseerabad, Bombay. Having returned to England in 1896, the 2nd battalion was dispatched to South Africa in 1899, where it added "South Africa, 1899-1902" and "Relief of Ladysmith" to the colours.
