|Outstanding soldiers of the Dorsetshire 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 39th Regimental District - Dorchester. The 1st battalion returned from Bengal in 1882; it was briefly sent out to Malta (September to October 1882), and in 1885 was at Chatham. In 1885 the battalion was sent to Malta, and on to Egypt, returning to England the next year. It embarked again for Malta 8 February 1888, was sent on to Egypt in 1889, and on to India in 1893, and in 1895 was in Madras. It took part in the North West Frontier campaign. The 2nd battalion had been in India from 1871, and in 1885 was stationed at Peshawar; it returned to England via Aden 24 December 1886. The troops were sent out to Ireland in 1893; in 1895 the battalion was at Belfast; but in 1897 it embarked for Malta, and in 1899 was transferred from there to South Africa, where it added "South Africa, 1899-1902" and "Relief of Ladysmith" to the regimental honours.
