The Volunteer Long Service Medal was authorised by Special Army Order 85 on 26 May 1894. It was superseded in the UK on the creation of the Territorial Force in 1908.
In 1896 the award was extended overseas to the Volunteer Forces of the Empire. This roll is includes all UK recipients and those from Bermuda.
The names of those awarded the medal were published in lists issued with Army Orders. Corrections were made in Army Orders. Upwards of 45,000 medals were issued, initially un-named until late in Queen Victoria’s reign.
All lists issued with Army Orders during the period 1895 to 1930 are included.
