Lord Chelmsford. I regret to report a very disastrous engagement which took place on the morning of 22nd January between the armies of the Zulu king Cetshwayo and our own No. 3 Column consisting of a total of 1500 men, officers and other ranks.

PostSubject: Long service and Good Conduct stripes...   Wed Jan 02, 2013 8:03 am

Hello and Happy New Year 2013 to all and especially a very good health in 2013, this is the most important ...


Long service and Good Conduct stripes were awarded to qualifying privates and lance - corporals ,to a maximun of seven badges,for 2,5,12,18,21 and 26 years' service...

One small question I have in mind to start the year ...

Very well, but to become holder of these Long Service and Good Conduct stripes, it had to have 2,5,12,18,21 or 26 years' service of war or campaign ?

Or you could receive the Long Service and Good Conduct stripes in remaining at the bottom of a barracks of London during 2,5,12,18,21 or 26 years? ...

Cheers

Pascal

These awards are for just what they are called - long service and good conduct. It is relative to the length of time in service and are not affected by campaign service etc
