2nd. Bn., York and Lancaster Regiment


Khedive's Star, dated 1882, named to 2221 Sgt. J. Allen, 2nd. Bn., York and Lancaster Regiment
Khedive's Star, dated 1882, named to 2307 Pte. Hugh Lowery, 2nd. Bn., York and Lancaster Regiment
Khedive's Star, dated 1882, named to 1598 Sgt. C. Nettleton, 2nd. Bn., York and Lancaster Regiment
Khedive's Star, dated 1882, named to 2327 Pte. George Pierpoint, 2nd. Bn., York and Lancaster Regiment

Almost all the Stars known to this battalion are named in the style of the awards to Lowery and Pierpoint. Machine-engraved naming in running script has so far only been recorded on the Stars to Allen and Nettleton. The Star to Allen, however, is found in a complete group, including MBE and KPM, which adds weight to claims for the authenticity of this style of naming.
