|Outstanding soldiers of the Oxfordshire 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 43rd Regimental District - Oxford. The 1st battalion embarked for India 28 September 1872, moved to Burmah 1879 to 1882, and was stationed at Bangalore by 1885. It returned from India in 1887, was moved to Ireland in 1892, and by 1895 was based at Dublin. In 1899 the battalion was sent out to South Africa, adding "South Africa, 1900-1902", "Relief of Kimberley" and "Paardeberg" to the regimental honours. The 2nd battalion was sent out from England to Gibraltar in 1884, and on to Egypt in 1885, and from there to India in 1886, taking part in the North West Frontier campaign of 1897 to 1898.
