My Lucknow OD list, which I claimed on another thread to be the most complete one 'available', exists only on my computers and one, heavily annotated, print-off. As I've stated, it is incomplete and, given that I will not be able to go to Britain to continue research in the near future (family health problems), is likely to remain so. It was originally intended to be an appendix to a book I've been writing for some years, on actions which led several ODs to receive the V.C., but I've decided to try to 'publish' it in some form or other separately as a stand-alone.
As I am now in possession of more free time than over the last few years, I have decided to make one last 'big push' to add some names/details to the list before attempting publication, so this is a final appeal for info. on this forum, which has been incredibly helpful. Any suggestions as to how to go about publishing would be gratefully received - it's not book length. I would, ideally, like to earn a modest amount of money , from this and my other work on the Lucknow Siege, purely with the aim of financing further research.
In short, if you have any enquiries about specific people (and I only have a list of ODs not of the relieving forces) I'd be glad to try to help you, as so many have done for me. Otherwise for the moment, I'm afraid that Rees and Brig. Inglis' official list of ODs are the best publically available, as far as I know.
