|Outstanding soldiers of The King's (Shropshire Light Infantry)
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 53rd Regimental District - Shrewsbury. The 1st battalion embarked for Egypt in 1882, took part in the Egyptian war ("Egypt, 1882"), and by 1885 was stationed on Malta; returning to Egypt in that year, it took part in the Soudan expedition ("Suakin, 1885") and then was sent back to Malta in 1887. The battalion was sent on to Hong Kong in 1891, and transferred to India in 1894; in 1895 it was at Fort William. The 2nd battalion returned to England from Bombay in 1881, and in 1885 was at Woolwich. The battalion was sent to Ireland in 1886; back to England in 1894 (at Portland in 1895); and in 1899 off to South Africa, where it added "South Africa, 1899-1902" and "Paardeberg" to the regimental honours.
