I have a medal from 1902, edge inscribed "A BARRETT WATTS CAPT SUPT CRP".

Would like to now what "CRP" stands for and anything about A Barrett Watts.

Can you describe the medal, or show us a picture, please, us57?  I'm afraid I'm a 'visual learner' and a photo is much more likely to jog my old brain.  Thanks.

My extensive knowledge of Chinese and French allows my to read 'Provisional Government of the District of Tientsin' on one side.  

And here it is!  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tianjin_Provisional_Government.  Picture of the medal in the article.  perhaps with that as a starting point you'll be able to track down the Captain, who may be British or American, I'd think, as the other nations involved were Russia, Japan, Germany, France, and Italy, as per the flags.  A link to the famed 'Boxer Rebellion'!
