|Outstanding soldiers of the 59th regiment of Foot
The 59th (The 2nd Northamptonshire) Regiment of Foot embarked for Hong Kong in 1849. It was serving at the Cape of Good Hope by 1860. It returned to England and Scotland in 1861, and in 1865 to Ireland - the regimental depot was at Athlone - before being sent to Ceylon in 1867, and from there in 1869 to India. Each year just a handful of outstanding soldiers of the regiment were chosen for good conduct medals and gratuities: these are listed here. There were two lists, one for men recommended for the Good Conduct Medal without a gratuity, and one for gratuities - £5 to a private, £10 to a corporal, and £15 to a serjeant. Both lists are indexed here, and each gives rank, name, regimental number, date of recommendation and date of issue. (The sample scan is from the 105th foot)
