|Outstanding soldiers of the South Wales Borderers
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 24th Regimental District - Brecon. The 1st battalion returned from Malta in 1879, and by 1885 was stationed at Kilkenny. It embarked for Egypt 17 December 1892.
