|Outstanding soldiers of the 12th (The Prince of Wales' Royal) 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 embarked for India 29 December 1876, and by 1885 was based at Bangalore (the home depot was at Canterbury). Having added "Central India" to the regimental honours, the 12th Lancers returned to England 24 November 1887, were moved to Scotland in 1893, and by 1895 were based in Edinburgh. They were moved to Ireland in that year, back to England in 1897, and in 1899 sent out to South Africa, fighting at Modder River, Enslin and Magersfontein; the relief of Kimberley, Paardeberg, the advance to Blomfontein and Pretoria, Diamond Hill and Wittebergen.
