|Outstanding soldiers of the King's Own (Yorkshire Light Infantry)
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 51st Regimental District - Pontefract. The 1st battalion moved from Dinapore in Bengal into Burma in 1885, adding "Burma, 1885-1887" to the regimental honours. It returned to England 20 December 1887; was moved to Ireland in 1893, and in 1895 was stationed at Belfast. Returning to England in 1899, it was sent back to Ireland in 1900. The 2nd battalion embarked for Malta 28 December 1884, and in 1887 left Malta for the East Indies. In 1895 it was stationed at Poona. The battalion took part in the North West Frontier campaign of 1897-1898, and the Zhob Field Force. In February 1899 the battalion was moved to Mauritius, and the following October to South Africa, where it added "South Africa, 1899-1902" and "Modder River" to the regimental honours.
