|Outstanding soldiers of the Royal Sussex Regiment
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 35th Regimental District - Chichester. The 1st battalion moved from Cyprus to Egypt in 1882, moving into the Soudan in 1884, and fighting at Abu Klea - adding "Egypt, 1882", "Nile, 1884-5" and "Abu Klea" to the regimental honours. The battalion returned to England in 1885, and was transferred to Ireland in 1891 (was at Fermoy in 1895) and back to England in 1896. The battalion was sent out to Malta in 1899, and on to South Africa in 1900, adding "South Africa, 1900-1902" to the colours. The 2nd battalion embarked for Malta in 1882, and went on to Egypt and India in 1885, where it was established at Dum Dum by 1895. It took part in the Hazara Expedition of 1888 and the North West Frontier Campaign 1897 to 1898.
