|Outstanding soldiers of the Border Regiment
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 Border Regiment was based on Regimental District No. 34 - Carlisle. The 1st battalion embarked for India 29 September 1875, and by 1885 was stationed at Agra. It returned from India 14 December 1890 and in 1895 was at Woolwich. The 2nd battalion returned from Aden 21 March 1877, and in 1885 was at Dublin. It embarked for Malta 3 November 1888, and transferred to India in 1890. By 1895 it was on field service in Waziristan, but in 1899 was moved to South Africa, adding "South Africa, 1899-1902" and "Relief of Ladysmith" to the regimental honours.
