Hi Gents

My only one of these...

this is missing it's bar and I think even the suspenders is wrong but it's mine....

I bought this a while back  described as 2 bar but it's only one bar.  MIC said, I think , it's c1919?

I could google relevant dates for appropriate bars but I'd rather wing it.... and say 18-23 ish...

3434 Sepoy Badar Din 1/55/RFLS

Well called.  The 55th were in Afghanistan and earned the N.W.F. 1919 bar.  After '22 they became the 1/13th FF Rifles - and medals issued 1923 and later would reflect that, I think - but also do not appear to have been in action again until WWII.
