Destitution in Donegal (1858)
Hearing of extreme distress in Gweedore and Cloughaneely in Donegal (including Tory Island), an investigation was made by a group of clergymen, gentlemen and newspaper reporters, who found a large part of the populace (800 families) to be in severe poverty - clad in rags, barefoot, living in mud hovels, without furniture, beds or bedding, and subsisting for much of the year only by scavenging seaweed and shellfish from the seashore - beset by rapacious landlords (with their apparatus of lawyers and bailiffs) raising their rents and confiscating the mountain lands on which the poor had relied for pasture. A parliamentary Select Committee was appointed to investigate: its report includes detailed minutes of evidence of their investigations, including testimony relating to many named individuals who had coped with the local crisis and survived, or those who died, and lists of those whose cases had been looked into. The landlords rebutted any suggestion of impropriety, suggesting that when the investigation was made 'a great deal was got up for the occasion' by an inherently dirty peasantry that kept their animals in their houses, in the hope of obtaining relief money (which, to the tune of 3,200, had been received, mainly from England). Seaweed was remarkably nutritious. It was remarked that 'some of the men go to England and Scotland to earn money' and that 'a few young people emigrate yearly to join their relations in America and Australia'.

National ArchivesGordon Highlanders fighting in Egypt (1882)
The war medal roll for the Egyptian campaign of 1882 is annotated to show those men actually present at Tel-el-Kebir, and thereby also entitled to the Tel-el-Kebir clasp. In addition, there follows an almost duplicate roll of men entitled to the Bronze Star granted by the Khedive of Egypt in recognition of the campaign. The 1st battalion, The Gordon Highlanders, embarked for Malta in 1881; was transferred to Egypt early in 1882, taking part in the 1882 campaign including the battle of Tel-el-Kebir, and in further fighting in 1884. In 1885 the battalion was moved to Malta, and from thence to Ceylon in 1885. This medal roll relates only to the 1882 campaign; it was compiled in Cairo in November 1882 and the medals were issued 30 January 1883.

National ArchivesQueen's South Africa Medal: Royal Field Artillery: 13th Battery (1901-1905)
The nominal roll for the Queen Victoria's South Africa Medal - awarded (after her death, in the event) to all who had served honourably in the various campaigns in the Boer War - was compiled from these returns from the individual units. Two sets of form were completed. The main one, as in the sample scan, dates from 1901 and gives regimental number, rank, and full name (surname first), followed by a series of columns relating to different actions - Belmont, Modder River, Paardeberg, Dreifontein, Wepener, Johannesburg, Diamond Hill, Belfast, Wittebergen, Defence of Kimberley, Relief of Kimberley, Defence of Mafeking, Relief of Mafeking, Cape Colony, Orange Free State, Transvaal, Rhodesia, Talana, Elandslaagte, Tugela Heights, Defence of Ladysmith, Relief of Ladysmith, Laing's Nek, and Natal; each entitled the man to a separate clasp to the medal, and a tick or a Yes in the appropriate column indicates the man's actual physical presence in that battle. A final column for remarks is important in those cases where the man was no longer in the unit, by removal, death or desertion. The second form that sometimes occurs was returned in 1905, and covers men entitled to the Second South African War Medal and Clasps. It lists men by number, rank and name, checks whether they had claimed the Queen's South Africa Medal, and then enquires as to their suitability as to three Colony Clasps, which could be awarded for service in the Cape, Orange Free, or Transvaal; whether entitled to Date Clasps (South Africa 1901 and South Africa 1902); whether also entitled to the King's South Africa Medal; any other corps in which served in South Africa; and remarks (such as becoming non-effective, forfeiture, &c.) WO 100/140

Medical Practitioners in the Provinces (1926)
The Medical Directory was split into several sections. The Provinces section covered all medical practitioners resident in England outside the London postal district (except those in Monmouthsire, who were listed under Wales). Each year a schedule was sent to each doctor to be returned to the publishers, so as to keep the directory up to date. In the directory the doctor's name is given first, in bold, surname first, in capitals; then current address. Next are the qualifications; the italic abbreviations in parentheses following the qualifications indicate the medical school at which they were gained. Then there is a list of posts and honours within the profession, starting with those then current; previous posts are preceded by the word 'late'. Finally, brief details are given of any publications.
