National ArchivesOutstanding soldiers of the Prince of Wales' Leinster Regiment (Royal Canadians) (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 100th Regimental District - Birr. The 1st battalion embarked for India 7 October 1877, and by 1885 was stationed at Fyzabad. It returned from India 13 December 1894 and in 1895 was at Tipperary. A detachment was dispatched to Ashanti. In 1898 it was moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia, and in 1900 to South Africa, where it added "South Africa, 1900-1902" to the regimental honours. The 2nd battalion returned from India in December 1877, and in 1885 was at Birr. It embarked for Malta 9 November 1894, was moved from there to Bermuda in 1895; to Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1897; to Jamaica in 1898; to Barbados in 1898; and to South Africa in 1901, where it helped gain the South African honours, and was still based at Middelburg in the Transvaal in 1906.

Unclaimed Naval Prize Money (1855-1902)
Various prize moneys were awarded to officers and men who served on board her Majesty's ships. For one reason or another a substantial number of these prizes, from as little as a shilling or two to as much as many pounds, remained undistributed by 1902, when this comprehensive list of the unclaimed moneys was printed: it lists unclaimed shares of prize money, slave and pirate bounties, salvage awards, parliamentary grants, gratuities and other moneys distributed by the Admiralty 1855 to 1902, but which omits moneys for service on the China Station during the war of 1856 to 1880, and special gratuities for service in Egypt (1882), Soudan (1884) and Soudan and Nile Expedition (1884-1885), for which there are separate indexes. In each case the sailor's name is given first (surname, then christian name or initials); rank or rating; ship in which serving at time of capture or award; and the amount due.
