|Outstanding soldiers of the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles)
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 26th Regimental District - Hamilton. The 1st battalion returned to England from Malta in 1881, transferred to Scotland in 1884 and in 1885 was based at Glasgow. The battalion moved to Ireland in 1886; and back to England in 1891.
