|Outstanding soldiers of the Royal Fusiliers (City of London 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 regiment was based on the 7th Regimental District - Hounslow. The 1st battalion embarked for Gibraltar in 1885, and went on to India: it was based at Kurrachee by 1895. The 2nd battalion embarked for India 1 October 1873, and in 1885 was at Cannanore in Madras; it returned from India to England 29 March 1889, was moved to Ireland from Guernsey in 1895, and sent on to South Africa in 1899, where it added "South Africa, 1899-1902" and "Relief of Ladysmith" to the regimental honours.
