|Outstanding soldiers of Princess Louise's (Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders)
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 Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders were based at Regimental District No. 91, Stirling. The 1st battalion embarked for Natal 19 February 1879, adding "South Africa, 1879" to the regimental honours. In 1885 they were transferred to Ceylon, and in 1888 to Hong Kong, returning to Scotland 23 March 1892. In 1894 the 1st battalion was moved to England; in 1895 it was at Aldershot; in 1898 it returned to Scotland; in 1899 it was sent to Ireland, and then transferred to South Africa, where it gained the honours "South Africa, 1899-1902", "Modder River" and "Paardeberg". The 2nd battalion returned from Gibraltar to England in 1881, was moved to Scotland in 1882, and back to England in 1884, and in 1885 was at Portsmouth.
