I have High-lighted the bits that confuse me. Could someone explain.

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 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 Natal 25 February 1879, taking part in the Zulu war of 1879, adding "South Africa, 1879" to the colours, and were transferred to India late in the year. By 1885 the troops were based at Lucknow. One squadron was sent to Egypt (returning to England 2 November 1891) but the bulk of the regiment came home 3 November 1890. In 1895 the 17th Lancers were based at Leeds; in 1897 they were sent to Ireland; and in 1900 to South Africa, where they gained the honour "South Africa, 1900-1902".

hi 24th.
Gratuity is a payment ( pension ) which accompany some medals ,
Not Sanctioned means basically " Not Authorised to recieve the medal "
Hope this makes sense . This is what I believe those terms to mean .
Happy to stand corrected . :)
cheers Gary.
