National ArchivesMen of the 3rd Regiment of Foot (East Kent - the Buffs) fighting in South Africa (1877-1879)
What is commonly called the Zulu War Medal was awarded to those British soldiers who fought in a series of conflicts in southern Africa from 1877 (the Kaffir War) through to 1879 (the Zulu War). In 1880 the various units submitted returns of the officers, non-commissioned officers and men 'entitled to the Medal for Military Operations in South Africa during 1877-8-9' and these 'medal rolls' are now in the National Archives. The returns are made with the information arranged in twelve columns: 1. Rank and name 2. Regimental number and rank at the time the medal was earned 3. Whether in possession of medal for previous wars 4. Whether engaged against the Gaikas, Galekas and other Kaffir tribes 1877-8 5. Whether engaged against Pokwane 1878 6. Whether engaged against the Griquas 1878 7. Whether engaged against the Zulus 1879 8. Whether engaged against Sekukuni as set forth in Par. 2. G. O. 9.

National ArchivesOutstanding soldiers of the East Kent Regiment (The Buffs) (1881-1901)
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 3rd Regimental District - Canterbury. The first battalion returned from Bengal in 1879, and were stationed at Buttevant in 1885; 29 January of that year the men embarked for Malta, and went on to India, and were at Jullunder in 1895, and took part in the Chitral Relief Force, adding "Chitral" to the colours. The 2nd battalion embarked for Cape of Good Hope 3 October 1876, and in 1882 they arrived at Hong Kong from Singapore; in 1885 they were moved to Egypt (Frontier Field Force). The battalion returned from Egypt to England 29 April 1886, were sent to Ireland in 1892, and in 1895 were at Athlone. After a brief return to England in 1898, the second battalion was sent in 1899 to South Africa, taking part in the Boer war of 1899 to 1902, with the actions at Klip Kraal, Paardeberg, Kitchener's Kopje, Poplar Grove, Dreifontein, Bloemfontein, Bakenlaagte, &c., adding "South Africa, 1900-1902", "Relief of Kimberley" and "Paardeberg" to the regimental honours.
