1, could be Platelayer, but that is more a railway occupation than an Artillery one.  Not one I've run across in my Indian collecting years.

Only time I have come across the trade of Platelayer was on a Mesopotamian Railways Victory Medal, which unfortunately I failed to secure.

If the 'SUP' was 'SUB' or in error for 'SUB' it would be 'Subedar', a Viceroy's Commissioned Officer - we'd say 'warranrt officer' in the Imperial indian Army or modern Indian Army.

That seems logical, Cazack, and nothing else leaps to mind.
