|Outstanding soldiers of the Royal West Surrey 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 2nd Regimental District - Guildford. The 1st battalion returned from Bombay in 1879, and by 1885 was established at Tralee. It embarked for Malta 24 December 1891, and moved on to India, where it was stationed at Umballa in Bengal by 1895. The 2nd battalion embarked for Malta 26 July 1877, going on to India in 1878, and in 1885 was at Cawnpore. The battalion was moved into Upper Burmah in 1886 ("Burma, 1885-1887" and "Tirah"), back to India in 1888, returning to England in 1894. In 1899 the 2nd battalion was sent to South Africa, adding "South Africa, 1899-1902" and "Relief of Ladysmith" to the colours.
