SUTLEJ MEDAL for ALIWAL 1846 in exergue bar SOBRAON. FRs. CHERROT, 53rd REGT. (Shropshire Light Infantry)
On Sutlej roll as Francis Cherrott his papers give his name & importantly his correct Regimental number as 1836 Pte./Cpl. Stephen Francis Cherritt (other spelling on other rolls are 1836 Stephen Cherrill, 1836 Stephen Chevutt, at least the Regt. number on rolls was constant ! surname spelling is from modern copy rolls, so may well be misreading script writing on the rolls from the India Office but the medal naming may well be spelt correctly)
Sold in D.N.W. Auction 24.2.2016 were 2 of his other medals, as below -
India General Service 1854-95, 1 bar North West Frontier (1836. Corpl. S. F. Cherritt, H.Ms. 53rd Regt.); Indian Mutiny 1857-59, 2 bars Relief of Lucknow, Lucknow (Corpl. Stephn. F. Cherritt, 53rd Regt.) edge bruising & contact marks, otherwise N.V.F.
1836 Stephen Francis Cherritt born at Blandford, Dorset, & attested 27.5.1844 in the 53rd Regiment, aged 17 years 6 months. He served with the 53rd for 20 years; in India for 15 years including the Sutlej campaign at the battles of Aliwal & Sobraon; the Punjab campaign at the battle of Goojerat; the expedition on the North West Frontier under Brigadier-General Sir Colin Campbell in March to May 1853; & in the Indian Mutiny at the relief & capture of Lucknow (with 1 extra year for service at Lucknow & Prize Money) Discharged 17 4 1865 at his own request to live in Limerick after completing 20 years service & whilst serving in the Limerick County Militia. During his service he was made Pte. 27.5.1844 Cpl. 1.3.1851, Sjt. 1.3.1856 but was 15 times entered in the Regimental Defaulters Book & was 5 times tried by Court Martial, so 'up & down' in these ranks over 20 years (no L.S.G.C. entitlement). At the time of his discharge he was 'in possession of the Sutlej Medal for Aliwal with bar Sobraon, the Punjab Medal with bar Goojerat, & the Indian Mutiny Medal with bars Relief and Fall of Lucknow.' Cherritt was one of 120 men of his regiment who later received the medal for service on the North West Frontier in 1852-53, although it was later decided that the regiment was not entitled (they had served there, but actions/dates were not quite in line for entitlement to the I.G.S.) & further awards to the Regiment were not approved. The 120 medals issued, were not reclaimed.
For more than 20 years Cherritt wore these medals, therefore the Sutlej is Fine, old solder repair at claw, with overall contact wear as can be expected from a long serving soldier who continued his service with the Militia having done 20 years in the Regular Army. Copy Service Papers & Medal Rolls.
The collector with his other 2 extant medals only has a Punjab to find to Cherritt to make a good looking Victorian group of 4.

From “The Campaign of 1882 in Egypt” (Col. J.F. Maurice) page 88 The Marines at Tel-El-Kebir 'The Royal Marines advanced without firing a shot up to within 100 yards of the parapet. The Marines seized & held the parapet, but the enemy stubbornly kept their ground in a formed body, 50 feet distant' & in General Garnet Wolseley Despatch - The Battle of Tel-El-Kebir 13th September 1882 - 'In moving over the desert at night, there are no landmarks to guide one's movements, we had consequently to direct our course by the stars. This was well & correctly effected & the leading Brigades of each Division both reached the enemy's works within a couple of minutes of one another. The enemy were completely surprised & it was not until one or two of their advanced sentries fired their rifles that they realised our close proximity to their works. These were however very quickly lined with their infantry who open a deafening musketry fire & their guns came into action immediately. Our troops advanced steadily without firing a shot, in obedience to the orders they had received & when close to the works went straight for them, charging with a ringing cheer. Major General Graham reports :- “The steadiness of the advance of the 2nd Brigade (2nd Battn. Royal Irish Regiment, R.M.L.I., 2nd Battn. York & Lancaster Regiment, 1st Battn. Royal Irish Fusiliers) under what appeared to be an utterly overwhelming fire of musketry & artillery will remain a proud remembrance.” Note - only one E.A.

Please note, my medals & information supplied with them are to the best of my ability right & genuine. As a member of the Orders & Medals Research Society, I abide by their rules & should anything be found wrong I am sure the problem can be solved.
