|Outstanding soldiers of the Duke of Cambridge's Own (Middlesex 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 57th Regimental District - Hounslow. The 1st battalion returned from Zululand to Ireland in October 1879; was moved to the Channel Islands in 1882, and back to England in 1884 and in 1885 was stationed at Dover. The battalion was sent back to Ireland in 1888, and from there to Gibraltar in 1892. It returned from Gibraltar to England 1 March 1895, and was based at Aldershot. In 1896 it was sent out to South Africa, and in 1898 on to India. The 2nd battalion embarked for Bengal in 1880, and by 1885 was serving at Secunderabad, and by 1895 was at Ahmednugger. The battalion returned to England in 1898, and was then sent out in 1899 to South Africa, where it added "South Africa, 1900" and "Relief of Ladysmith" to the regimental honours.
