|Outstanding soldiers of the 16th (The Queen's) Lancers
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 returned from India 6 January 1877, was moved to Ireland in 1882, and in 1885 was based at Dundalk. The 16th Lancers returned to England in 1888, embarked for India 3 September 1890, and in 1895 were at Lucknow (the home depot was at Canterbury). They moved to South Africa in 1900, adding "South Africa, 1900-1902", "Relief of Kimberley" and "Paardeberg" to the regimental honours.
