Medal Roll - Campaign

Medals as symbols of service are a fascinating subject in their own right but fortuitously since 1815 most British medals have been inscribed with the name of the person to whom it was awarded, giving at least details of his Regiment if not the all-important service number. 

Medal Rolls contain the entries for individual soldiers.  The campaign medal rolls for members of the Royal Regiment are:


Military General Service Medal 1793-1814


The Army of India Medal 1799-1826

China 1842

South Africa 1853

Canada 1866-1870
