|Outstanding soldiers of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers
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 27th Regimental District - Omagh. The 1st battalion embarked for Malta 17 November 1876 and by 1885 was serving in the Straits Settlements; it returned from South Africa 21 January 1889. The 2nd battalion returned from India in December 1876; in 1885 was at Belfast; 12 December 1888 embarked for India again. The regiment added "South Africa, 1899-1902" and "Relief of Ladysmith" to its honours.
