National ArchivesOutstanding soldiers of the Gordon Highlanders (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 75th Regimental District - Aberdeen. The 1st battalion was moved from Malta to Egypt in 1882, and added "Egypt, 1882, 1884", "Tel-el-Kebir" and "Nile 1884-1885" to the regimental honours. It was moved to Malta in 1885; on to Ceylon in 1888; and from there to India in 1891, being stationed at Rawul Pindee by 1895. It took part in the Chitral Relief Force of 1895, and the North West Frontier campaign of 1897 to 1898, adding "Chitral" and "Tirah" to the honours. The battalion returned to Scotland in 1898, but was sent out for the South African war in 1899. The 2nd battalion was moved from India to South Africa in 1881, taking part in the Boer war, returned home in 1882, and by 1885 was stationed at Devonport. It was sent to the Channel Islands in 1885; to Ireland in 1887; and back to Scotland in 1891, and by 1895 was stationed at Glasgow. It was moved to England in 1896; to India in 1898; and to South Africa in 1899. The two battalions added "South Africa, 1899-1902", "Paardeberg" and "Defence of Ladysmith" to the colours.
