The jumbled naming suggests a recent issue, as the naming duties have now been shoved down to the regiments and they usually make a hash of it (much nicer with Hindi naming).

This reads: 2757712 P/Nk BH Rao MLI = Paid Naik BH Rao Mahratta Light Infantry.

Cheers

I'd suggest the name is Bhim Rao. Making it: 2757712 P/Nk Bhim Rao MLI .
