National ArchivesOutstanding soldiers of the 3rd (The Prince of Wales') Dragoon Guards (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 regimental depot was at Canterbury. The regiment embarked for India 10 October 1884, and by 1885 was based at Muttra in Bengal. In 1892 the troops were moved to South Africa. In 1895 the regiment returned from Natal to England; in 1898 it was sent to Ireland; and in 1901 sent back to South Africa, where it gained the honour "South Africa, 1901-1902".
