Trouble with edge engraving

Recommended Posts

I'm having trouple with the HORRIBLE edge engraving on this Republic of India Sangram Medal. As I read it: 2060700 Chow.T.bt Hadur M.E.S.

Ed, This is the one I was talking about at SAGONGS.

I would guess this is to Chowkidar [Watchman] T. Bahadur.

When naming got shifted out to the regiments it got worse. Where there is no regiment (or standards) as with the Military Engineering Service . . . :banger:

Usually much clearer when in Hindi.

Ed,

I have a Sainya seva Medal that is soooo bad that I'm afraid identifying the recipient is hopeless. :banger: I'll scan it and post it today.
