Does anyone know if a Record was kept of those Members of the Duke of lancasters Own Imperial Yeomanry who earned the long Servive and good conduct medal between 1904 and 1908 before the onset of the TA. Fergus Read in his book states that only 20 men were ever eligible...In addition on the yeomanry seargent insignia of a crown above 3 stripes on the right arm what would 2 interlinked six point stars above the crown signify ? does anyone have any experise here ? thankyou

Have never heard of six pointed stars in army use, they always appear to be either four or five pointed. I think what you are seeing is the Ducal Coronet which was adopted as a regimental arm badge for all sergeants in 1900 in conjunction with the crown and which prior to that date had been worn alone above the chevrons to distinguish staff sergeants and above.
