National ArchivesOutstanding soldiers of the Duke of Edinburgh's (Wiltshire Regiment) (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 62nd Regimental District - Devizes. The 1st battalion returned from Bengal (via Aden) in 1882, and in 1885 was at Aldershot. It was transferred to the Channel Islands in 1886; on to Ireland in 1887; and back to England in 1893. In 1895 it was back at Aldershot; but late in that year the battalion was sent to India. The 2nd battalion embarked for the Cape of Good Hope in 1878, took part in the Zulu war of 1879, and then was moved to Bermuda. In 1881 the troops returned to South Africa, and thence to India, and in 1885 were stationed at Nowshera in Bengal. The battalion was at Mandalay by 1895, and from there returned to England; to be sent out for the South African war in 1899, adding "South Africa, 1900-1902" to the regimental honours.
