|Outstanding soldiers of the Welsh 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 41st Regimental District - Cardiff. The 1st battalion embarked for Gibraltar in 1880, moving on to South Africa, and was in Natal by 1885; it returned home 23 November 1893, and in 1895 was stationed at Pembroke Dock. The 2nd battalion returned from Canada in 1879, and was transferred to Ireland in 1883, where it was stationed at Mullingar.
