This is the same rank in both the Pakistani and Indian military and stands for Lance Daffadar (Lance Corporal) in the cavalry and armour divisions.

And with that name he is almost certainly a Pathan from the NorthWest Frontier area.  The same fellows who gave the British [and Russians, and Alexander's Macedonians] so much trouble for 150 years!  Nice medal.
