Interesting medal groups. Especially the second set. Good luck in hunting up the ribbons you need to mount your medals correctly. Be interesting to see them again once they are mounted.
The next group also came loose from Pakistan - I have yet to get these medals mounted and of course the correct ribbons are not easily available. The medals are as follows:
Military Efficiency Decoration 2nd Class - 7150 L. Mohd Nawaz S. Inf.
Good Conduct Medal - 135 Lance Naik Mohammed Nawaz
Centenary Medal - 7150 L. Mohd Nawaz Khan. 1st Bahr. Sad. Inf.
Volunteer Corps Medal - 127 Lance Mohammed Nawaz.
Note the change of numbers.
Finally a British group with a Bahawalpur medal - from a UK auction. The medals are:
War Medal - J. A. Bailey. Bd. Mastr. 105 Infy.
Victory Medal - J. A. Bailey. Bd. Mastr. 105 Infy.
Delhi Durbar 1911 - J. A. Bailey Band Master 28th Punjabis
Installation Medal 1924 (Silver) - No.1 Band Master Mr. J. A. Bailey
Bailey's Great War Medal Card notes his rank as Sub:Cond (Band Master) and his address is, 'Musical Director Bahawalpur State Band, Bahawalpur, Punjab'.
Further to James's thread on the medals of Bahawalpur I am pleased to display some groups I have the good fortune to acquire.
The first group came loose from Pakistan and is lucky to survive as a group. I have them cleaned and mounted with a view to maintaining their integrity. As and when I can obtain the correct ribbons the neutral brown/red ribbons will be replaced. The medals are as follows:
Long Service Medal - 17 Subedar Gulam Mohd Armourer 1st B.S.I.
Centenary Medal - 2nd Lt. Ghulam Mohd. Armourer
War Medal - 2913 Sepoy Ghulam Mohd Khan. 5 - Lt. Inf.
India General Service Medal - 2193 Sepoy Ghulam Mohd Khan. 5/Infy.
