National ArchivesOutstanding soldiers of The Prince Albert's (Somerset Light Infantry) (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 13th Regimental District - Taunton. The 1st battalion returned from South Africa in 1879, and by 1885 was based at Enniskillen. It embarked for Gibraltar 12 November 1891, going on to India in 1893, where it was at Umballa in Bengal by 1895. The 2nd battalion embarked for India (via Malta) 27 July 1877, moving on to Burma in 1883, and in 1885 was stationed at Rangoon ("Burma, 1885-1887"); it returned to India in 1887 and to England in 1894. In 1895 it was at Devonport. The battalion was sent out to South Africa in 1899, and added "South Africa, 1899-1902" and "Relief of Ladysmith" to the regimental honours.
