National ArchivesSeaforth Highlanders fighting in Egypt (1882)
The war medal roll for the Egyptian campaign of 1882 is annotated to show those men actually present at Tel-el-Kebir, and thereby also entitled to the Tel-el-Kebir clasp. In addition, there follows an almost duplicate roll of men entitled to the Bronze Star granted by the Khedive of Egypt in recognition of the campaign. Both the 1st and the 2nd battalions, Seaforth Highlanders (Ross-shire Buffs, The Duke of Albany's) served in this campaign. The 1st battalion embarked for Bombay 21 February 1871. After returning to Aden 25 February, the battalion was sent to Egypt 2 August 1882, returning to England 15 October 1882. The 2nd battalion embarked for India 16 February 1879, but a large contingent joined the 1st battalion for the Egyptian campaign, and Seaforth Highlanders took part in the battle of Tel-el-Kebir.

National ArchivesOutstanding soldiers of the Seaforth Highlanders (Ross-shire Buffs, The Duke of Albany's) (1881-1901)
Each year the best soldiers of the regiment were chosen for long service and good conduct medals. This register gives rank, name, regimental number, and date of recommendation. (The sample scan is from the East Surrey regiment). The register is essentially a register of recommendations, annotated with details of the issue of the medals. Where no gratuity accompanied the medal, the entry is marked 'W. G.' (without gratuity); where, for one reason or another, the medal was not issued, the entry is marked 'N. S.' (not sanctioned) and struck through. The regiment was based on the 72nd Regimental District - Fort George. The 1st battalion moved from India to Aden 25 February 1882, and arrived in Egypt 2 August 1882, taking part in the Egyptian war, and adding "Egypt, 1882" and "Tel-el-Kebir" to the regimental honours. It returned to England 15 October 1882, and was stationed at Parkhurst. In 1886 it was transferred to Scotland; in 1889 to Ireland (based at Tipperary); in 1895 back to England, and in 1897 was sent off to Malta to take part in the occupation of Crete. From there it was transferred to Egypt for the Soudan campaign of 1898 ("Khartoum" and "Atbara"). The 2nd battalion embarked for Bombay in 1879, and by 1885 was based at Lucknow; and by 1895 at Ferozepore. It took part in the Hazara Relief Force of 1891 and the Chitral Relief Force of 1895 ("Chitral"). Having returned to England in 1897, the battalion was sent to South Africa in 1899, where it gained the honours "South Africa, 1899-1902" and "Paardeberg".
