|Outstanding soldiers of the 7th (The Princess Royal's) Dragoon Guards
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. Having added "Egypt, 1882" and "Tel-el-Kebir" to the regimental honours, the 7th Dragoon Guards were sent to India from Egypt in 1883, and in 1885 were based at Mhow. The regimental depot was at Canterbury. The regiment was sent back to Egypt in 1893, returning to England in 1894. In 1895 the troops were at Shorncliffe. In 1900 the regiment was sent to South Africa, adding "South Africa, 1900-1902" to the colours.
