|Outstanding soldiers of the Royal Irish Rifles
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 83rd Regimental District - Belfast. The 1st battalion returned to England from South Africa in 1882, and was stationed on Guernsey by 1885. Having served in Ireland 1887 to 1894, in 1895 it was at Brighton. In 1897 the battalion was sent to South Africa, and in 1898 on to India. The 2nd battalion embarked for Bermuda in 1880, and moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1883; in 1886 to Gibraltar, in 1887 on to Egypt; in 1891 to Malta; and in 1894 to India. In 1895 we find the battalion at Bombay; but in 1899 it was transferred to South Africa, where it added "South Africa, 1899-1902" to the regimental honours.
